Chicago Air and Water Show

Its that time of year again! We love Chicago's Air and Water Show! Rick loves it for the planes, I love it for the friends and family time out in the nice weather....the planes are pretty cool too ;)  We went with a few friends in the ward and we also had some other friends meet us there.  My mom's high school friend, Katie, lives in Chicago.  We went to our first Air Show with her two years ago!  She met up with us and Daci was instantly attached to her.  Daci drug her down to the beach to play and dance around multiple times.  It was so fun to see her and I hope she doesn't mind that Daci decided she was her new best friend :) Near the end, one of my high school friends also met up with us.  It was so great to spend the day with friends and family and enjoy the beautiful weather, company, and aircraft!

I sure do love my wild and crazy niece :)

Street spent a lot of the day strapped to me.  He even fell asleep in there!

Liv was strapped to Rick a lot.  Despite the look on her face here, she really did enjoy it :)

This girl is so goofy.  She couldn't stop moving for two seconds and she kept screaming at the top of her lungs.  Ugh!
