Helicopter, Flight Lesson #1...COMPLETED!

Well some of you may know and others may not but Chris has ALWAYS wanted to fly for his birthday this year I got him his initial training, which is just the first of many, but now the ball is rolling and he will start to build his hours and work towards all of his ratings which will ultimately be his commercial rating, but first things first, his private license.
He spent Tuesday August 28 in Detroit, he had 5 hours of ground training and 1 1/2 hours of flight time. As you can see from the picture the helicopter they train in is not huge and he said it was a little nerve racking when they would bank and there were no doors on the aircraft!!! He had a great time though and came home more excited than a kid in a candy store (I think he was more excited than Charlie when he got the Golden Ticket) :) SO as you can all imagine I have been given some BIG hints on Christmas gifts already...but I don't think I can fit a helicopter into a stocking:) so he may have to write to santa...

Happy (BELATED) 29th Birthday Chris!

Last Sunday (the 19th) we celebrated Chris' 29th birthday. We had a very nice day with a morning brunch with his Mom, Step-dad, Alisa (who turned 27), John & the kids, Uncle Scott & Aunt Kristine, and Eric at Timbers and then a fantastic dinner at his Dad's house!

Here are some pictures of the cousins...the first is of Michael (4 1/2 yrs.) Kailyn (19 mos.) MaKenna (2 weeks) & Skylar (7 1/2 mos) & the next picture is Mr.Michael with Skylar, it is so cute how much he loves her...he always wants his picture with her and wants to hold her, I am sure he will change his mind some day!!

" better be listening to me..."

In my opinion it looks like Skylar is lecturing this stuffed animal...she can be so SERIOUS and so Sassy, I think we are in trouble when she is older!

What a Ham!!


Last week Tuesday Skylar's 1st 2 teeth popped through, but this was the first chance I had to get a picture!

"Yikes Mom, these hurt!"

Skylar & Jayce...I think it was love at first sight!

They were so cute together, they just stared at each other and kept one another very content! Skylar shoved her thumb in Jayce's mouth and he was sucking on it, they held hand, and she was trying to suck or bite his head, what a great first date huh?
