Savannah got some presents from Grandma Bea and Grandpa Gene




and some lights for her bedroom


(see Snowball?)


she got some new ice skates


and we went to a place called Urban Air with some friends as a birthday activity




Savannah is 11 now!

Reno Air Races

 


We went to the Reno Air Races today. We saw these planes flying around the valley when we got there. 



and we saw these planes being rolled out onto the runway




and some other planes parked 






There were many different military planes


this one is a huge cargo plane built in 1990 - they flew it in from Hawaii





they were letting people walk through the cargo plane








We got to watch the Thunderbirds do a quick show. They flew over our heads about 5 or 6 times, doing different tricks each time. They were amazing, they flew so perfectly. 

Virginia City

 

Carson drove us up to Virginia City last weekend, and it happened to be the weekend of the Camel and Ostrich races, so it was pretty crowded. 




Barrels of Candy store. They have super yummy taffy, but out of all the flavors they offer, I really just like the plain vanilla!


Grandma's fudge shop





St. Mary's church







They play peaceful music, so it's nice to sit in the pews for a bit and admire the details.



Then we went on the VT Railroad
