A new pilot in command…

Eli turned 14 months today Smile. In honor of this big day daddy decided to give him his first flight lesson.

Lesson #1 included:

  •  sitting in the pilot’s seat…

Don’t worry he isn’t really flying the plane. Sheesh, what kind of mother do you think I am? I would never let him drink and fly!

  • Getting acclimated to the instrument panel…

Wait dad, where did you say the altimeter was again??

  • And last but not least, wearing the appropriate head gear (while making sure to look ridiculously handsome like daddy)…

He even helped daddy drive the golf cart around to get a better look at all the gliders. I drew the line at him driving it by himself since I didn’t think he was old enough but I found out from a little boy there that Eli couldn’t ride the cart by himself not simply because he was too young to do it but because, and I quote “he wouldn’t know how to turn everything on.” Ha ha . True story. I got a little chuckle out of that. He was totally serious. Kids say the darndest things Smile.

Hope you all are enjoying a nice labor day weekend!
