Until last week, Sarah was the only member of our family who had never flown before. That all changed when our friends from Texas rented an airplane for three hours one morning so their son Erich could fly us around the area and show us his piloting skills.
Here are Sarah and Mr. E. heading across the tarmac to catch their 30-minute ride. She survived and seemed to enjoy her first flight! Yay, Sarah!
Meanwhile, as each twosome was in the air, whoever wasn't flying played Dutch Blitz in the airport lounge to pass the time. We think they are now hooked on this fun game!
Erich did a fine job of showing us the sights (along with a few special moves demonstrating zero gravity...scream!), even letting us take the wheel to "fly" briefly. That made me quite nervous!
We flew over our house and saw our gardens, shed, and new addition from above. We also saw the Showalters' farm over at Heartland Harvest from the air, our friends the Wagners' house, and our local quarry. That was all so interesting!
