Jenny and I took the boys and spent the day at the Joint Forces Open House and Air Show at Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland on Saturday, May 19. It was a beautiful, clear day, and despite our sunburn, we had a great time. I took lots of photos and created a gallery page for some of the better ones. — Rob
