Helicopter Ride

We got to do something SO exciting last night! While at the Cornbelly's we kept seeing helicopters flying overhead. After we were done there we decided to go see where they were doing helicopter rides. The man in charge was SO nice and gave us a great deal so we decided to take a family helicopter ride. If anyone has been around Preston for 5 minutes you'd know how much he LOVES anything having to do with airplanes and helicopters so he was elated to ride in one. Poor Ash was freaked out and cried until she actually got in it and then perked right up. She loved wearing the headphones with the mic so we could talk to each other. The ride was only about 10 minutes but Nick and I agreed it was WELL worth it! We're definitely planning on going again next year! It was awesome!

Our view from the air--bad pictures, but you get the idea. :)
Nick and Preston sat in front so I couldn't get a picture of him, but Nick said that Preston was smiling the whole time...and just loved it!
Our pilot....he's been flying helicopters for 4 years. He was so nice!
The WHOLE ride home afterwards Preston kept saying "Copter fun, Copter fun"

This experience was priceless! :)

looks like you guys had a blast. Ash looks so cute in her little get-up. I bet Preston won't stop talking about that for years. How cool.
