Friday morning a friend and I took our kids to a park on the Seattle side of the lake to watch the Blue Angels. The Weather was hazy, but not raining, chilly but our sweatshirts fixed that. It was a great day for Angel watching!
The bridge closes 30 min or so before the show so we had to be a little early. With kids, this can be tricky. So we planned to have the kids play in the sand as we waited for the show. They filled the sand buckets and made sand structures, but they destroyed them just as fast as they went up. Andrew even took down some of the girls' castles before the girls were ready. Boys!

The kid dynamic was great. Andrew watched Ethan all day and followed his every move. See here: Andrew has his hand on his hips just like his friend.
One of the reasons the Angels are so awesome is they dive and sneak up on you. There were a few times you could hear the roar and then all of the sudden they were upon you and it all happened so fast that you didn't even have time to cover your ears before they were gone again.
