Ryan surprised us today by whisking us away to Manitowoc, where they were hosting the “Thunder on the Lakeside” air show. We refused to disclose our plans to the boys until we arrived.
Sure enough, Ben was right. There were helicopters, everywhere!
Oh, but good news!!! They were giving rides, and they seat up to 3 people (other than the pilot.) Surely the boys would be too nervous, though….
So excited, they can’t keep their feet on the ground!
It would seem they had a great view from up there.
Even though it was Ben’s first time flying, it will also be the first time Jake will remember flight. He seemed to enjoy it!
When they stepped off the copter, it was pouring and you could hear thunder crashing, but luckily there was no lightening.
So we booked it for the nearest hanger.
Once the rain let up a bit, we enjoyed the rest of the air show. There were a LOT of cool planes, and they did a lot of amazing tricks!
All in all, this was a great surprise. Thank you so much, Ryan! We love you.
