We Can Fly, We Can Fly.....

I thought I would blog about my first time flying in a small airplane. It was the most fun thing I have been able to do for a long time. Rick (Danna's dad) has part ownership in an airplane and goes flying for fun when the weather permits. Well we were at Big 5 shopping for running shorts for Danna and my phone began to ring... It was Rick asking me if I wanted to go flying with him. I was stoked... I didn't have to be shopping anymore, and I finally got to go up in the air while sitting in the cockpit of a plane.

Danna and I made arrangements for Riley to be babysat and made our way to the airport where we were going to meet her dad. We got there a little early because I was so excited. We sat and waited for her dad to get there for at least 15 to 20 minutes. He arrived and then we hit the sky toward Mattawa where Danna's uncle's live. We flew over there houses and then fly down the columbia river toward vantage and then home. It was awesome. Here are a few Pictures. Oh yeah I took the camera with me so I could take pictures in the air but I was to involved with watching how the airplane worked so the camera sat at my feet the whole time. But I did get some pictures of the plane before and after the flight.....

Woodland Park Zoo

Well as I had said in our last blog, we made it to the zoo this weekend. We had an awesome time there as Riley really loved all of the monkey's. Which is funny because thats what his nickname has been since we first saw him in the ultrasound pictures.... So here are a few photos that we took on our trip.

Riley enjoying my Aunt's new toy she got. He was a little hesitant to enter at first so I being the good dad showed him how it was done. Yes I was as long as the entire tunnel but that didn't matter. You'll do anything for your kid right?

Mom and Riley watching the penguins. With Grandma in the background.

This guy was sooo funny!! He was just chillin in the tree.

Look at the cute litte snow leapards!!!

Kendell and Riley were, No joke, the best two kids in that park. They loved all the animals and never wined or cried!!

Gettin the pants changed in the trunk. :)

As you can see we had a great day at the zoo. It was a fun filled weekend with the zoo and then to Vancouver sunday morning for my Cousins blessing of his little boy Joel.

Joel is the little baby furthest to the left. It was soo good to see all of my cousins that we haven't gotten to see forever. I don't think I've seen some of the since they have gotten married. It was a great weekend!!!!
