Up Up & Away!!

My other half has wanted for as long as I can remember to take a ride in a small plane but it was a luxury we could never afford. Imagine his delight when his boss who is a lovely man and a very caring boss invited him to take a joy flight (he has a pilots license) with him last Saturday. Well he was that excited and had a wonderful time even getting to have a little 'fly' all by himself. They flew out over our beautiful Stradbroke Island in the bay and of course have numerous beautiful photos. So I am sharing just a couple because I wanted to document his absolute delight in having had a wish come true. My husband's language of love is to give to others particularly myself and his children and grandchildren, so I was so thrilled, terrified but thrilled he got to have this experience for himself. Big thanks to Andrew!
Thumbs up at take off just like in the movies!
Now is this the face of "Excitement"

Home again and photo opportunity with the plane.
I also wanted a record for when I get the 2nd half of my blog printed in a couple of weeks.
It just goes to show you shouldn't give up on these little things on your 'love to do' list because of lack of funds etc. because you just never know when a wish will be granted.
Blessings Michelle xx
