This afternoon there was an awesome air show at our small local airport. We had a visit from The Snowbirds Demonstration Team from Canada. These guys put on a heck of a show.
I only managed to get a few good shots....they move too fast and I'm not a professional photographer AND we just didn't get close enough to the action. The traffic was terrible so we parked at a local church and watched from there.
I didn't get shots of the best stunts unfortunately but I figured I'd share the few decent ones I did get.
Some of the stunts were pretty scary looking and some were pretty low to the ground. Awesome...it's amazing the precision and the level of trust these guys must have.
Now on to the puppy portion of this post. My husband and I separated almost a year ago...ugly tale...not worth repeating. We had a dog (lab/beagle mix) that stayed here when he left. He decided recently that he "needed" to get the dog. He was a pretty big fella and more than I could control if he got loose in the neighborhood so I agreed. I have since regretted this stupid decision and realized just how deeply loosing him has affected me...and the kids as well. Well, thanks to a guardian angel....today I went on a mission to find a new baby. I went to the local shelter and was the first one in the door when they opened only to find that the baby I was looking for had already been adopted out. :( I looked around (so many little cuties there) and couldn't decide so I left and went to Pet Smart....nothing but dang old kitties there. Feeling a little let down, I went back to the shelter one more time. I took out lots of puppies one by one and checked them out...chatted with them a bit *yeah, I'm crazy like that* and this little lady just melted my heart. She was not at all what I was looking for but she was exactly what I wanted. We chatted and played and then I went to handle the adopting. I asked if I could snap a quick photo to show the kids and they said "SURE!" I guess she figured since she had worked her magic and was going to her new home soon...she didn't need to do any more of that cutesy stuff. She was napping away.
She has her surgery done on Monday morning and then she can come home with us on Monday afternoon. We're all so excited!! I know she looks like a drunk in this photo but really...she's a gorgeous little girl. More photos to come when she gets home. :)
