Project 52 - Week 23 - Flying Eagles

Once again things have been just plain busy around here.  Getting ready for VBS.  Editing some recent photo shoots.  And the normal day-to-day stuff.  For some reason my kids think that I need to feed them several times a day and provide them with clean clothes.  :)

However the kids and I took a couple days and just had some fun.  We needed that.  They just finished school and were ready for a break.  A friend of mine told me about a Flying Eagles event happening at our local airport on Saturday, so the kids and I went to check it out.

Apparently all you have to do is register, watch a film about flight safety, and then you can go for a 20-minute plane ride.  At least the kids could.  It was for ages 8-17.  :(  I was bummed because I would love to go for a plane ride.   Alex was bummed too because he really wanted to go, but he's only 7.  Nick wasn't going anywhere near the place.  In fact, when we pulled in, he said he wasn't going to get out of the car.  :)  I told him I wasn't going to make him do anything he didn't want to do, so he came with us and ended up having a fun time playing in one of the hangers.

Keira was excited to ride, so we got her registered and while she was watching the training film, the boys and I were allowed to go check out a plane.

Alex had fun sitting in the plane and playing with the controls.  He's smirking because I am taking his picture from under the wing and he's moving the flap, thinking he's going to bop me on the head.  :)  He didn't.

Nick and Alex were talking to each other through the headsets.

The plane we got to check out and Keira got to ride in was an old WWII plane.  It was pretty cool.

Keira apparently enjoyed her flight because she gave me two thumbs up afterward.  :)

After we were done at the Flying Eagles event, we went to see The Croods at the cheap theatre.  It was a cute movie.

On Sunday we piled in the car and went to Erie - stayed over and had more fun.  I'll post about that soon.

It was fun to put work aside and just have some fun with the kids.  I plan to do more of that after Vacation Bible School is done.  In the meantime, I need to get back to it!  :)

Looks like a great way to spend the day. I'm glad at least one of your kids got to fly. Very cool!
