red bull air race at ellis island

saturday afternoon we spent the day with some of our lovely friends on ellis island watching the red bull air race. i had no idea what this event was, and even after going i still can't explain it quite right, so i looked it up: it's an international series of air races in which competitors have to navigate a challenging obstacle course in the fastest time. pilots fly individually against the clock and have to complete tight turns through a course. the races are held mainly over water near cities - and this year was the first time it was ever held in nyc.

let's just say the boys loved it! {ps - all pictures below are from jonathan - he was in heaven!} although we didn't pay as close of attention, the girls had a blast chatting on blankets, eating yummy treats and watching the boys get so excited!
