Mom, Jeff and Isaac left in the morning and then we headed on base to the Aero Club, where we had signed up for some flights back in January!
They were really small planes, so we had to split up. Philip and Keenan went first:
All ready to go!
It was an awesome experience to get to see the beautiful area that we live in from the air! What a great way to preserve it in our memories =)
"Crab Island", a really shallow area that boats come to and dock and hang out
Coming back in - this is our side of Eglin AFB
The beautiful area where the Pennys live
This is cropped to keep our exact location from being so obvious, but Philip got this shot of Our house!!
The three of us heading out for our turn
Getting loaded up
I think they look Adorable with the headsets on! =)
Let's Go! (This time I won't jump out)
During our taxi out to the runway
Philip took tons of pictures, and I did more video, so my pictures are mostly of the kids...
She loved it!
Brooks bridge, crossing from Fort Walton Beach to Okaloosa Island
Such a big boy
He started dozing off after we landed =)
Thank you nice pilot lady!
After naps we went bowling (since the kids are signed up to bowl for free all summer, we just had to pay for us and shoes). I totally stunk at it, but had a great time anyway! =)
Keenan did really well and got a score of 99!
Without help, Moriah's would roll so painfully slow down the lane that we were Sure they would never make it.. and they always did! =)
That's a handful!
Philip helping Caleb (after a couple turns, Caleb was happy to let Keenan and Moriah play for him)
Yes, this was totally destined for the gutter =)
My littlest goof and I =)
The handsome men on the other side of the table
After dinner, I did a "Gender Reveal" photo shoot for a friend. This was where I got to photograph the parents finding out what gender their unborn baby is! I looked at the paper (sealed in an envelope) from their ultrasound and then filled little pinatas with either pink or blue confetti. When they pulled the string, the confetti rained down and I snapped away while they screamed and jumped up and down with excitement. * I didn't say Which color of confetti here, because I don't know who's reading and she hasn't announced it to the world yet!*
When we got home, we found this HUGE DQ Heath ice cream cake in the freezer (we forgot to take a picture before we cut it), and a disc with the video Devin had made by splicing together three different videos from our skydiving experience - sooo awesome!
Those Pennys.... just way too awesome =)
What a great birthday and birthday weekend! I am so blessed! =)
