flying with Nick, finally!

Another first!   Nicholas and I spent a great day doing guy stuff.  Started out at the local firing range and went through about 300 rounds of 9 mm and 223.  Lada said it was OK to take Nicholas flying, so we headed over to Urbana for a nice Sunday afternoon lunch.  For those of you who are familiar with the restaurant at Urbana, you know what I’m going to say next:  they’re closed on Sunday afternoon.

Oh, well.  Back in the plane and on our way home to try something else!  Here’s Nick climbing out of Urbana.  He’s doing very well for his first flight on the controls!

Nick, piloting on a beautiful day!


One of the ‘Hey, wow!” moments came when he realized he could recognize things on the ground.  For example, this is his old middle school when he lived in Marysville.  I think that the excitement in his voice when he made the identification was wonderful.  I hope that he will spend more time in the air with me.
