Vacation: Day 2

On Wednesday, we met up with my Aunt Vicki. She had been telling us she had a surprise for us for weeks before we ever came down, so we were pretty curious what she had in mind. It ended up being that she was taking us up in a 4 passenger plane with a good friend of hers that is a pilot. Danny and I had never riden in a small plane, so we didn't know what to expect. The man, Peter, had Danny help him with some of the pre-flight inspection that is required that they do before each flight. In the picture above, Danny is checking the fuel tanks to make sure they are full. It was a lot of fun going up in the plane. Its a lot different than a commercial plane. You can feel a lot more of the bumps and turns. It made us feel a little dizzy because we weren't used to it, but it was a very neat experience. We had a lot of fun!

I'm glad you're having a good time!! That's a bummer about the flights being delayed though.
