So my logic for how Carolina started referring to DumDum suckers as 'bicycles' goes like this....She doesn't eat candy very much, but she does eat icy pops (POPsicle) from time to time; She sucks on those to eat them; So when she had her first DumDum on Halloween she associated the sucking on it the same as sucking on a Popsicle...Therefore it's a 'Bicycle'. Now, as to why she subsituted 'Bi' for 'Pop', I have no idea. But it makes me laugh.

This is a long video. But there are great parts throughout so I had to include it. Especially good at about the 2:50 mark. Tanner and Carolina had a collision! However, a kid ran right in front of them so you kinda miss the actual hit. Any high pitched squealing is Carolina.
She went down once with Rendon and once with me. We weren't sure how she would do but she loved it!
This was a C-130 Hercules named 'Fat Albert'. It's one from the Marine Fleet that they just use for shows. Here they demonstrate a combat landing and takeoff. It's how they have to land or take off in Balad for example, where Rendon was earlier this year, and it's the type of plane that they took into and out of Balad. If you haven't seen a C-130 before, they're HUGE. It's crazy to think of being in one when they dive like this.....SCARY....Rendon said it even hurt his ears, and he's flown small prop planes that aren't pressurized.
Here are the 5 Blue Angels performing a 'Fleur-De-Lis'. If you are familiar with them, you know there should be 6. Unfortunately #4 was not there. From what we heard the pilot got caught 'having relations' with someone of lower rank....
The things they could do were crazy. I didn't catch the name of this maneuver.
This one was so pretty!
An upside down pass (don't know if that's what it's called, but it's what I'm calling it!)
Here is Carolina saying 'Goldfish' which we weren't aware she knew how to say untill she asked for them on the way home from the airshow. We were in Rendon's truck, and it's no where near a smooth ride, so excuse the rough video

And yes, even though the Panthers did not play today, as every Saturday night, Carolina wore a Panthers onsie to bed! Gotta keep the stride going! In the words of Lina "Go Panthies!"
