Too much excitement for my son. I was pulling him about in his wagon all day. Using my helmet bag as a pillow...

Great photos, Sven! My granddaughter loved going to airshows with me, and even hauling her around the ramps in a wagon wore her out, but great memories!

Thanks for sharing these with the rest of us!
