Friends from afar

Karen and Mike and Jack, Oh My!

Dad hangs with Oliver

Oliver and Dad were watching the Canadian Juniors thrash the living snot out of the Russian kids the other day, and Mom used the opportunity to take some pics!

Note the golf tan, and slightly greasy-unwashed look Dad is rocking. This telecommuting from home thing is clearly not working for Dad at all.

The above is Oliver's disbelieving reaction to Dad's whispered suggestion on where babies come from. Crazy Dad!

Airborne Oliver! (and check out that hair colour!)

Oliver attends the Lethbridge Airshow!!

These are from a few weeks back

We arrived at the airstrip just as it was getting started.
Mom took this pic of Oliver and dad on our way to the Hercules transport!

Here's Mom and some too interested for his own good fighter pilot.

We saw lots of different planes

We even got a chance to take our picture in the nose of one!

We saw that Miss Mitchell still looks pretty hot..

And then we noticed Oliver's name!

Eventually the airshow started in earnest, and along with looking at the planes we were treated to watching them swoop down on us at high speeds! Jets roared by, pulling their noses up to tail walk past us. Planes whipped by in tight formations, pulling loops, spins and other high speed tricks.

One thing we didn't count on ... the noise.
Pretty soon, the booms and pows that accompany super fast jet flybys started to upset Oliver.

So Mom, Dad and Oliver called it a day, and wrapped our first airshow!
