Flashback Friday

This isn't too far of flashback, but last week was so busy as we led up to Halloween that I never got this posted and I wanted to!  Tuesday, October 28th, our friend, Ty Hansen (aka Linda, my dad's girlfriend's, son-in-law) took us on a flight in his four person propeller air plane!  That was quite the experience,  very different from a commercial jet... especially on the landing.  I don't know if I enjoy such front row seats as the ground gets closer and closer!  I really enjoyed seeing all of our beautiful surroundings from above, though, it's such a different perspective!  That's also different then a jet, since they quickly rise above the clouds.  It was a very unique experience, and I'm glad we took advantage of the opportunity to go!  And we're very grateful that Ty was willing to take us with him!

Very cool, but very brave. I wouldn't do it. I hate small planes. I've lost 4 too many people by small plane crashes. You're daring!!

I got to drive... errr fly the plane! I am not sure what the pilot was smoking when he agreed to that.

How fun! Can I just say that Todd looks just like Tyler in that picture. For a minute I thought it was Tyler.

How fun! I've only been in a small plane once and it freaked me out. But maybe that had to do more with our friend the pilot trying to freak me out on purpose! :D

How cool! I think it would make me so nervous though. I'm not the best flier in the first place! Looks like you had fun though! Love the halloween pics! Very cute!
