But first, I desperately wanted to finish off the second set of blocks for my Chef Freddie's Favorites quilt. Yay! I finished them up! I am hoping to have the quilt assembled by my next post. I'm crossing my fingers that I have clear calendar this week so I can get it assembled.

I've made some slight progress on my Mickey and Pirate Friends cross stitch piece.
|Seafair Pirates Invade Our Skybox at the Hydros|
Hey, that isn't Goofy. And those certainly aren't the Pirates in the Caribbean (sorry, friends, no surprise visit from Johnny Depp). Them thar are Seafair Pirates. They invaded our Skybox for a few minutes and tossed out some Seafair pieces of eight and some stickers to the kids. It was fun to have them drop by.

Now there is Goofy. And he's really keeping an eye on me now. Those pupils are starting to show up.
The hydro races were so much fun! I really want to thank the folks at Oracle for hosting us for such a fantastic VIP experience. From the moment we arrived, we were given drinks, snacks, and views that just couldn't have been better for the races.
|The Boys Getting Settled In For The Day|
The covered tent area behind where the boys are sitting is where the food and swag was. There was food of some sort available almost the entire day. They also had some fun swag including hats and sunglasses.
We chose seats in the shade. The sun was just slightly behind us the entire day, so we were very comfortable on a warm day.
|Crane Placing the Hydros in the Water|
Since our seats were on an elevated platform, we could see all the action. Above you can see them placing the hydros into the water for the races.
A little after noon, the hydros took a break, and we were treated to an air show over the water. One of the highlights of the air show was the Blue Angels flying in formation. I apologize that the picture isn't a close up, but I was having too much fun watching them.

My favorite hydro of the day was the Oh Boy! Oberto. Maybe I like it because its sponsorship has been around for as long as I can remember. Maybe I like the colors. Or maybe, just maybe, it's because I love the Oberto Beef Jerky. Does it really matter? We got to see her race twice yesterday.

Now, should any of you think that the Goofin' Off family has such fantastic adventures every weekend as we have the past few weekends, I'm sorry to disappoint you. The next few weekends should be pretty mellow around here. But that should give me plenty of time to cook up some fun new projects and posts for you.
Hope you all have had a great weekend. Does your local community have any fun festivals or fairs? What's your favorite to take part in? I'd love to know.
