Impromptu Field Trip!

We just had the most super cool day today! Thomas had to fly out to Arkansas this morning (which he does quite often) when I was struck with the best idea....We'd go watch him take off at the airport! I don't know why I never thought of it before, but it was really fun! We always tell Braden "Daddy had to fly on the airplane today" and today he really got to see it. To tell the truth, I think it was as much fun for me as it was him!

So after the plane was out of sight, we decided to go into the little office building and check things out...A little exploring, if you will. Inside, we met this man who actually invited us to go sit in one of his airplanes! (He teaches a flight school there.)

Braden was in Heaven as he pretended to fly that plane...Steering, pushing buttons, flipping switches. The guy was just more than happy to answer all of Braden's questions about how everything worked and even told us he would take us up sometime.
Maybe he can go up with Thomas someday, but it won't be with ME as I am chicken to fly!

Anyway, it was just a really fun morning. We got a neat opportunity and both of us learned a little about something new!
