Conversations with a 2 year old, verse 2

Ashlynn, now 2.5 yo, was putting the hood from the hoodie I was wearing on my head, all the way over my eyes. Then she would look at me and say:

Oh, Mama, you so cute!

Conversations with a 5 year old

Lauryn (5 yo): What's the sun made out of?
Me (trying to think of a way to simplify it for her): Gas that's on fire.
Lauryn: So it stinks?

She did not appreciate how long I laughed after she said that.

Air Show 2010

Today we went out to Lackland Air Force Base for the annual air show. We went with some friends from church, and the only that spoiled the day was that our camera batteries both went dead on us before we could take more than a couple of pics. We didn't get to stay for the whole thing - so we missed the Thunderbirds - but we had a blast. It was so cool to see the planes do things I'd only seen on tv. They also had Japanese and American planes from WWII "re-enacting" some of the battles of that war. Very cool stuff. Also very loud. Next time we are taking ear plugs and head phones. And sunscreen. And water bottles. And chairs.

Here's all 6 girls sitting on the side of a medical helicopter, one of the static displays.
And just for my dad, here's the older 5 standing in front of the chopper like they used in M*A*S*H.
