Wordless Wednesday...Reaching for the Sky


Last week we had our youngest grandson Thatcher (and his mother) in from Omaha for a quick visit. We tried to pack in as much as we could for his 3-day visit. 

We have an iFly not far from us so one afternoon, Thatcher chose to fly!

 

 

The instructor was amazing...he was upbeat and very encouraging. At the end of the video, he took Thatcher up and totally made his day.

Good morning Kathy! That is a fun experience. I did that once back in 1985.

Kathy WOW that is something I would like to do.  Thatcher must have literally been flying on cloud 9 after that experience.

Kathy, that had to be a blast for him, and doesn't every little kid want to FLY?

Being able to defy gravity would be a wonderful experience.  We don't have anything like that near us or I would have been there by now.

Hi Kathy Streib - I am thinking that if we find one of those "IFly", the men in my life will be "up" for it!  Pun intended!

Brian England Larry had to for training when he flew but said the same thing you did...why would anyone want to jump out of a perfectly good plane. 

Norma J. Elkins it would make for a special gift!

What a fun thing to do for kids and big kids!!!  Love the video Kathy!  We have a ifly here in Scottsdale and maybe one of these days our grandkids will want to give it a whirl.  Not sure I will!!  But who knows!

I watched it three times! Loved it. What a wonderful experience.

Rick got a gift certificate to do that several years ago from our daughter and he never got around to using it. It was 1.5 hours away and he just never made the time to go.
