Sunday FUN!!

Sunday was a fun day for me!! Our daughter, Becky and her two kids had decided to go to Vidalia, Ga to see the Blue Angels. Hubby usually loves to go but he wanted to stay home and watch his favorite team..DA' CUBS!! I had thought about staying at home several times but then thought to myself.."SELF, you never go anyway and you live in this beautiful state! Go!!" So this time i listened to ME and went. I HAD A GREAT TIME!!

Our granddaughter, Maddie

I am usually not a lover of air shows but for some reason, I had a great time!! We walked around before the show and looked into some planes. It was hot...Being right there on the air strip and all that concrete well that did not make it any cooler!!
Our grandson Garrett

We stopped and got a coney dog, lemonaide shake-ups!! We went to our chairs to wait for the big show to start!! I had brought a BIG umbrella from the last Blue Angels show that we went too...I am so glad that i had it!! It helped some with the sun and then later with the rain.

The show started out with daring guys on motorcycles..jumping and doing tricks. You would have to be crazy to do this..but like Becky said they are just thrill seekers!! Good for them.

Then they had all kinds of planes doing tricks and dives!! WE kept waiting for those Angels to start!! The big ugly clouds kept moving in and then leaving!! But we stayed..waiting!!

This is called Wing Walking!! Crazy!!

Finally the BIG show started!! I have a new camera and it has a burst on it. I love this feature. It helps you just keep taking one picture right after the next. Sure helps with fast moving

How cool!!!

We had a great time watching them do their thing!! Finally it was time to leave and the rain set in. We had to walk back to be picked up by a school bus and then taken back to our car. Even though the rain messed up the end of the day, we still had a fun time. I know that I did.

I have been going to work and coming home for so long now. I needed a change!! My mental health is starting to get better now thanks to new medication. Each day i am feeling a little bit better!!

Thanks to all of you who have been praying and thinking about me. It has really helped. I have had a very hard past 4 weeks now!! I NEVER want to go back there again!! Also I have learned a good lesson through all of this too.

Hope you are having a great day!! Enjoy can be so short!!


Thought for today: "Learn from the mistakes of others. You can't live long enough to make them all yourself!!"

What a wonderful time. I'm glad you went. You need to get out sometimes and this event was a great opportunity for you to watch the excited faces of your grandchildren. They look so happy and I'm sure part of it was because you were there.

I'm glad you are feeling better. It's always nice to know when people are having an easier time of things.

I have heard of the Blue Angels, but have never had the priviledge of seeing them. Each year on the Labor Day weekend there is an air show in our city and since my daughter and her family live close to the air field, we watch it from there. The Snowbirds flying team usually performs. Their stunts are awesome.

Take care, my friend. So glad that you enjoyed my Disney safari tour.

Blessings for a great week.

I'm glad you had a fun day yesterday. We all need a little rest and relaxation at times. I have seen the Blue Angels. They really put on a good show.

Glad you are beginning to feel much better.

Hello Dear Sandy.....

I’m sorry to hear that you have not been well. So pleased that you decided to go out on Sunday, I can see that it did you a lot of good...... a precious time with your grandchildren too and how fine they look.

I’ve not been a very good blogger of late, goodness, there is so much to do what with two gardens to looks after and getting things ready for whilst we are away in US..... I can’t believe how time is flying by. I hope we can meet up Sandy....... I’m sure Betty has something planned.

Take care dear friend. Love - Marion

Sometimes if I just force myself to make a little extra effort to get out and about I am rewarded tremendously. I am so glad you had a good day and enjoyed being with your family. said...
