Air Show Fatality

On a very sad note from our air show experience, we learned that the gentleman in the picture below who is reaching for the helicopter tragically missed this maneuver during the air show on Sunday.  He fell 200 feet to his death.  You have probably already heard about it as it made national headlines.  In the pictures below, you can see our children were able to take a picture with him on Saturday.  We pray that his family is comforted by the Holy Spirit.

Our Fun Day at Selfridge Air Show

Faith is excited to begin the day and ready for all of the action to come.
Beginning as the day should, here the Air Force Areal Team starts the day.
Here is one of the fabulous Air Force Areal Team members with the family...Faith can't believe it.
Will he make it from the plane onto the helicopter....you will have to wait and see...
Amazed and Stunned...Faith is speechless at the daring antics of this dare devil.
Shew...safe and sound...our dare devil grabbed the helicopter and was set down safely.
How do they fly straight with all of the blood rushing to their heads in the FA-18 Super Hornet?
And it's even more amazing that they can aim their bombs so accurately at the same time.
Faith is completely amazed and in awe with the astounding ability of the FA-18 pilots.
Here Faith is so worn out from the action, but takes a minute to pose with the incredible FA-18 Super Hornet pilots.
Even the sky had a nice day and couldn't help but smile from all of the fun.
Our friends at Rainbow Connection made this day possible for us with free tickets to a VIP tent at the Selfridge Air Show in Mt. Clemens, MI.  The whole family had a blast, and it was thrilling to watch all of the action and experience the power of our military.  Faith continues to get stronger, but we still keep working on her feeding issues.  Check out the short video below of a high speed fly by of the FA-18 Super Hornet.  He was moving at near 1 mach and very close to the sound barrier.  Look closely and you can see the air around the plane has a white mist look because of amazing speed.

Check out my new hand-me-down.
Thinking about rolling around in this thing.
My cousin John who gave me this new gadget.
Alright Dad, enough with the pictures.
Faith has been doing very well since feeling sick for about a week or more.  She had 4 days without throwing up at all which is a new record or at least has been a very long time since it has happened.  She has been so excited all night and it appears that the stander may be helping her build her core muscles with the way she is moving around and standing in it.  With the wheels, she also has figured out how to push backwards, but she hasn't quite gotten the walking forward thing yet.  It is funny to watch her push all the way through the house.  Now she can disappear on us.  Check out the video below to see how well she can stand.
