Air Force Academy Graduation

Today was the Air Force Academy graduation.  The Thunderbirds always do an air show after the ceremony to celebrate their accomplishments.
This was the stadium from where we were sitting. It was a busy place today.

Before the airshow got started the President decided to leave the graduation and post-pones the air show.  We all sat around wondering if it was going to happen or not.  Apparently this helicopter is the President's escort so we knew he was coming.
This is some photos from the motorcade.  I was a little behind on them because I was wrestling with kids.  The President is in one of those cars?
We decided to have a picnic for the airshow.  This is a horrible photo, it was taken with my cell phone.
On to the show!
This jet put on his brakes for the crowd.  It was really neat to see it slow down so much.  I could actually track it with my camera.
It is amazing to watch these pilots and the maneuvers they can do.
While I was tracking them, they flew directly over our head.  I actually rotated this photo 90 degrees because they were straight up.

We had a great time as a family.  Our neighbor, Brad, also came with us and he had fun too. It was a nice day.
This also helped me finish one of my 101 goals:  To have a family picnic.  Nice show, good food, great family.
