The air is hot and heavy, the sun is bright and the crickets have finally started serenading us with their summertime symphony - that can only mean one thing... the summer time is slowly drawing to a close. Now, before we go pound sand and throw a temper tantrum, we must realize that there's still a lot of life left in this grand summer of 2010. More festivals to be had, more shows, more quality family time to come, and more fun! Just because the weather will start cooling off doesn't mean the fun will stop!
The US Navy Blue Angels and US Army Parachute Team Golden Knights will be in town this weekend, August 14-15, for the 52nd Annual Chicago Air and Water Show along Lake Michigan's shores from Fullerton to Oak Street. New this year, the water and air shows are being combined for one big show that will start at 11am and end at 4pm on both days. In the city on Friday as well? Bring a picnic and watch from the lakefront as participants practice for their debut!

Growing up, the Air and Water Show was always seen as the last "hoorah" of the summer for my family. We would pack up the van and head downtown with coolers, blankets, kites and other fun outdoor activities. What's your family's last "hoorah" of the summer? What's your favorite vacation/activity that has become a tradition before the hot summer days turn into busy school days?
