The Air Show

The air show at Hill Air Force Base was just a mile up the street from us.

We had a pretty good view of the air show from our front yard. The really cool parts were when the Thunderbirds flew near the end of the show. Here they are information and doing some tricks. All day there were different kinds of planes flying over the house. But these were most exciting.
Telephoto lens...

The best seats... (short of going on the roof like some of our neighbors did. We Skinners are too whimpy for that. YIKES! Maybe in a couple years at the next show.)

I wanted to bring some color into the kitchen.
I'm too scared to paint the walls so far....not to mention indecisive.
It's too open to the rest of the house.
Anyway, I thought I'd add color on the bar stools. But again, couldn't decide what color.
So I did 4 different ones.
Aren't they cute?
They only look good in this order though. :) No, really. I'm particular about the order. For some reason, this is the order in which they look best. Owen's is the red one. It's closest to his favorite color, pink.

Blue couch, anyone?

I love it!!!
