It is a long walk to get to this landmark

Enjoy the reading of the Declaration of Independence by a Congressman


David bought a book by Bo to pass the time
(Michigan fans know who Bo is)


The fireworks were the best we had seen in a long time

Air Show

Dad and Susan went to The Battle Creek Air Show on Saturday. It was 95 degrees plus 100% humidity but well worth it! 

He looks like natural huh? :)


In the cockpit


Mr. Rogers (a man in our church) who is a Chief in the Navy gave us the tickets to go. This is his wife and younger son getting a taste of what it feels like to be a Blue Angel!


The start of the show!





This is a jet-fueled truck that went 350 mph! Amazing!


Our favorite was the national champion stunt pilot! (blue plane)

The blue plane came out again with this red plane and they put on a phenomenal show!
