Thunder Over Augusta

Here’s the munchkin dressed up to go to Thunder Over Augusta, an armed forces appreciation festival last Saturday. See the matching outfits? Since she almost never plays with dolls, mommy was happy that she wanted to hold her baby for the entire day. Lots of people at the festival commented on how cute she was with her doll, and she ate up the attention. I guess I need to look for more of those matching outfits!

We saw some paratroopers land, including one whose main chute got tangled on his foot. We didn’t realize there was a problem ‘til I I read about it in the paper the next day. We missed the jet flyovers, but we did see some Chinook helicopters flying overhead. The munchkin enjoyed the bouncy castles and we watched some attack dogs do their thing. Lee Greenwood crooned in the distance as we set up our chairs for the fireworks on the riverwalk.

You can’t tell from the picture, but there’s a pretty steep hill. The highlight of the afternoon for the munchkin was rolling down it – in her white dress. Thank God for Oxiclean.

The other big highlight was a fantastic fireworks display. We agreed that it was the best we’d seen short of Disney World.

When we got home, we discovered that we really should have taken the dog with us. We could have – lots of other people had their dogs on leashes. It would have been a little tricky, but possible. Bella had been redecorating the house, and now, we are searching for a couple of new sets of faux wood blinds that match the dimensions of our breakfast room windows.

It’s lucky that she’s so cute.
