One of my lifelong dreams has been to go up in a prop plane. I decided that longing to pilot one was too big of a life dream... until Hubby made it happen. On Valentine's day he got me tickets for a 'Discovery Flight' at a local airport. This meant that I would learn the basics of flight and then fly the aircraft (as much a possible) with an instructor.
Well we waited until the ground was pretty to go up- unfortunately it was the hottest day of the year. This meant that there was more turbulence than normal. But I didn't care- I was living a dream!

|yep- really 3000 feet up!|
|hubby was my brave passenger|
After we went out to eat to celebrate. I think my husband was really celebrating just being on the ground again.
|how awesome am I in Hubby's aviators?!?!|
