so we loaded up and headed out to watch these crazy men jump out of an airplane. they did the little class and had some instruction and then got ready. dad went first. he got all suited up, went through the review with the guy he would be tandem jumping with and got a bunch of hugs.
and then he flew off in an airplane. and we waited. and we waited. and we waited. really it wasn't that long but with four little ones in an open hanger without much to do, well, you know. but we found things to entertain ourselves....
like cones and tipping them over
then he got checked out and mia double checked just to be sure her daddy was safe!
and then we got the same little announcement - daddy should be out of the plane and visible in just a few seconds. out we went to search the sky to see if we could find him. and sure enough, that little spec of something turned into a daddy drifting safely down to the field of grass.
and then he just as confidently strolled across the grass to us and grinned. he loved it as well and now they are both trying to convince me that i should go. and to be honest ... i may not be so opposed to that idea. =)
