I was out this weekend, but not for the reasons you might have all expected. Some of you might have heard my family was supposed to go fishing starting last Friday but bailed when one of their friends had other plans to go fishing at another place other than what we intended, so there was a major change of plans.
Friday turned out to be a typical day with that lazy vibe of sitting and falling asleep under the heat. With my parents out of the house for several hours, my brother and I decided to watch Batman Begins, after watching the sequel, The Dark Knight Rises, so many times. It wasn't exactly what we expected. My brother wanted out after twenty minutes, wondering why it was slow-paced, but I'm glad we pushed through. I really wonder why Batman ditched his wing in the second movie...
On Saturday, with the rest of my family, I went to an air show that happened only every couple of years. Before that, my family made a few stops to our library to check out books. Alongside the library was an event that was going on showing inventions. I wanted to go bad, but my family was on a tight schedule and you had to pay to get in. Something that we did see was a trailer shaped like a rocket, and the owners invited us in for a quick look. I really wished to have taken a picture of it, but I didn't want to be disrespectful.
After another ten minutes of driving, my family got into the air show area. We got to see military planes and the insides of them. There were tons of vendors everywhere, the aroma ringing in the scent of funnel cakes.
The first plane we saw was a Canadian plane that was docked, well, parked, and the crew told us a bit about themselves. They even gave us a maple leave sticker (picture should be shown below).
There were so many planes that were out and we were allowed to explore the insides of, I lost count! There were also areas dedicated to showing gear that the military had to use, and miniature surveillance planes. In fact, there was a rover that interacted with all of the little kids!
Finally, the time came when the main showing arrived! This show never fails to impress me, even after seeing it time after time again.
Finally, on Sunday, I went to my cousins birthday party. She turned four yesterday. The party was Disney princess themed, with Anna balloons, a Merida cake, and my cousin wearing an Elsa costume (though she claims to be Anna). Frozen and High School Musical music was being played everywhere. This was an event I couldn't take much pictures of, except for one showing another one of my cousins, other than the birthday girl, opening a box of pizza. Look below:
