2006 Edwards Air Force Base Airshow

Today we went to the Open House and Air Show at Edwards Air Force Base. It's about a 2 hour drive from our house, and with that said, it's a strong possibility that the girls will be getting individual DVD players that hang over the headrest for Christmas, for long car rides such as these.

I think it's safe to say that Rachel probably didn't enjoy the airshow. The flyovers and demonstrations were extremely loud and sometimes frightening to her, as determined by the way she clutched onto you as they flew overhead. She did, however, manage to take about an hour nap in her stroller despite the noise.

Having had a beautiful, bright day, the evening sky was just as beautiful.

Another idea (that's cheaper than DVD players) that we use on longer car trips is books on CD or Adventures in Odyssey kind of things. We're currently listening to the Ramona series (again) while we're in the car, and usually it keeps them engaged and quiet. We just check them out from the library, though we are buying the AIO CDs since we all love them so much.
