Just before lunch today, Mom put on my 'flames' bandanna and said lets go, we're off to the Chicago Air & Water Show. She said it was the 50th anniversary of the show, so it was supposed to be really good. Now, I don't care too much about planes, but I saw Mom slip a bully stick into her bag, so I was fine with wherever we were going and whatever we were doing. We walked up to the lakefront, so I was feeling fine after that nice long walkie! Mom found a nice shady spot where we could spread out and relax and enjoy the show. Then the waiting began. We waited nearly an hour for the first plane to come by us. While we waited we enjoyed a picnic, yeah sandwiches!
Then the planes began, there were really cool transport planes, and old time planes, then the F-22 Raptor came by. Woooh, that thing is loud, but so cool! It can just float in the air and flip around. Mom and Dad were so impressed, they had never seen anything like it.
After the raptor, the waiting game began again. Mom didn't want to leave until she saw the U.S. Navy Blue Angels, so we waited and waited. See, we did a lot of waiting cuz we were at Montrose Harbor, which is a few miles down the road from North Avenue Beach where the majority of the planes show their tricks. Only the super fast planes that need LOTS of air space come further north. We don't mind, cuz we wanted to avoid the 2 million plus people that would be closer to the beach. That's way too many people for this pooch! To keep me occupied while we waited, I GOT MY BULLY STICK! Woooh hoooh!!
So, I sat and happily munched. Then, there was a loud sound that scared me so much, that I left my bully and ran over to Mom. Mom sat there and clapped, apparently the Blue Angels had arrived, and they were LOUD! Each time they passed over, I got so scared.
I made Mom attach a video, you might not hear the sound so well, but take it from me, it was loud.
As soon as they were done, I was more then ready to leave. Mom had to pick up my bully and bring it home. I was that scared, I couldn't finish my bully! Can you believe it? I hope you all had a wonderful weekend, and didn't have to suffer through loud noises!
'Till next time,
We're Celebrating Early
