Flying weekend

This weekend was the Father's Day weekend Fly-in at Dillsburg.  We decided to camp out overnight this year, last year we just went up for Friday evening.  The weather was great.  Rod didn't take his Parachute but he got 2 rides from other guys with their flying machines. 
We started off Friday in the pool and then supper.

Then to the runway to set up camp and watch the airplanes..

Here's daddy getting a ride on his dream machine....

I thought Clay was going to lose his voice, the way he was squealing about all the planes..He was getting into it..But sometimes it was "no like noise".

The boys made a friend next door.  This is his plane..Brad took this pic.  I think he's better then me at taking pictures :]

Saturday morning, bright and early.

This got the boys asking for rides in an airplane.  Saturday night Rod took Adam up in his parachute.  I wasn't sure how he'd do, it's a little scary when you first take off.  But he really liked it, they stayed up for 45 minutes.



A video of takeoff:

Adam wanted so bad to fly down to Tractor Grandma's last night for our get together.  It was just too windy.  That'll give him something to look forward to for another time!

A great Father's Day weekend for a hard working father!

This week there's nothing on the calendar!!  But we have a wedding here Sunday, so i'll be weeding and tiding up around the barns.  I'm excited for Carly and looking forward to connecting with some old friends that will be at the wedding!  It's 8:50 Monday morning and the boys are all still in bed!  Gotta love summer :)  (and late nights!)
