Flying high!

Yesterday was the best Saturday!  Tripp, James's cousin, is a pilot in Dallas and he flew into Amarillo for the weekend.  James and I met him out at Tradewinds airport so he could take us up!  I've never been up in a small plane like that before and it was a white knuckle ride!  I was a nervous wreck, but loved it at the same time!  We flew through Palo Duro Canyon which was just gorgeous!  After we made it safely back on the ground, we took off to the ACC golf course for an evening of golf.  Parker loved every minute of the golf game, he even cried when it was over.  Love him.

 Getting in!

 Our trusty pilot checking things out before we took off.

 The screens up front looked so cool!

 Steve and I rode in the back while James was the "co-pilot"!  

 The canyon

 For those of you who live in Amarillo...can you spot the lighthouse?  Look closely!

 Flying over Amarillo

 I took this pic for Parker...this is the BNSF train yard.
The boy loves seeing these trains when we drive by them!

 Jim, James, me Tripp and Steve

The cute in-laws!  :)

 Parker was napping while we flew and the second he woke up he said "golf course mommy?"  The boy was ready to play!  He played holes 6-18, pretty impressive for an almost 3 year old.

 Parker always rode with "Geefather"

 Getting instruction from Uncle Steve

This is the only age in life when you can get away with a lime green golf club.  In just a few short years, he'll have a real jr. set, but for now, the Little Tikes version is darling!

 Tripp getting out of the sand trap!

 Serious golfer

 This was the last round on the golf course, the country club is getting ready to tear it all up and build a brand new one.  They already had tractors out there and P was fascinated!  

 The hubs teeing off!

 It was a beautiful evening!

My two handsome boys!
