Dom and I have always had this plan to take the girls out for an afternoon and lay on a little blanket together as a family facing the sky as we watched numerous bellies of planes fly over us. Of course, we haven't made the time to do so, but we made a quick detour on the way home from my parents house and told the girls we had a surprise for them to see. These little detours work best when mama's in the driver's seat! I pulled off of Haven and we found an industrial building and parked the car, opened the windows and waited...and waited...and waited. It must have been half an hour, and not a single plane came, and the girls continued to grow curious about what the surprise was. I told Dom we'd give it another 20 minutes, and those 20 minutes came and left without a single plane in sight. We buckled up the girls pretty disappointed, and hit reverse when low and behold a plane decided to land! We quickly go the girls out and let them experience the massiveness of those tiny planes they see in the sky. They were amazed, jumping up an down with joy, waving hello to the planes and just full of excitement and laughter. Oh to be a kid again. Of course we were just filled with the same joy as they were, only because we got to see their little faces and witness all that they were experiencing. I love my family and such simple times as these!
