This past weekend our family journeyed down to the Naval Air Station in Jacksonville to see the air show. There were all kinds of planes doing all sorts of acrobatic tricks, along with a semi that can go 300 miles per hour, some well-timed explosions, and the highlight... the Blue Angels. The entire show was amazingly impressive and did much to promote patriotism.
