The Chicago Air And Water Show

We had an absolutely gorgeous weekend in Chicago…. Love when the temps are in the 70*s and the sun is shining!  Perfect conditions for the annual Chicago Air And Water Show.  Lukus had some free time on Sunday so we took advantage of it by taking in the festivities from our building’s roof deck.

While I didn’t get much accomplished (for the blog, home or any other aspect of life!), I did take a few photos I thought I would share with you:

It was my first time attending the Chicago Air and Water Show and I was thoroughly enthralled with the jets.  We even had the opportunity to hear a sonic boom, which was rather impressive.  Lukus has now added “ride on a fighter jet” to his list of musts.

Today is Monday and there is a lot to do!  Hope you had a great weekend.  Tell me, how are you spending these waning summer weekends?


  1. I love Chi-town! I was there in 2010 and cannot wait to go back. Those are some awesome pix you took and you have quite the view!

  2. So pretty! Looks like a lot of fun. We have air shows around here in SF too it’s always fun to watch.

  3. I’ve never been to an air show, but have been fascinated with them. And WOW you live in a gorgeous area of the city. Nicely done!

  4. The photos you took are fantastic! I’m glad you had a great time at the Chicago Air & Water Show; it sounds like a really great time and I think that if I were to see something like that I would totally have to add “ride on a fighter jet” to my bucket list as well!

  5. Those are gorgeous photos, Alexis! We have an Air show usually around Canada Day when the Snowbirds perform…it’s fantastic to watch:)

  6. What a marvellous view! Air shows are fun … I also always love shots of the beach when everyone’s down below..

  7. Your rooftop view is beautiful! I try to get away of the city as often as I can on weekends, it’s been one hot summer. xo

  8. Amazing pictures! The beach one is my favorite. I hope you frame it!

  9. I love such shows. even I’d been to one a couple of months back. I always look forward :)
    lovely pics gal :)

  10. Wow. Are those destroyers in the second picture?

  11. I haven’t been to an air show in a long time. Beautiful photos!

  12. I was lucky enough to see a show in Paris on their national day and loved it. I haven’t heard a sonic boom though (yet). Would love to see it with an accompanying water show.

    Thanks for sharing your pictures!
