Another First

Newport 2013 030

August is always a busy month for me and this year even more so! Ed and I took our grandsons, age ten and four, to Newport for a few days. We arrived at the tide pools below Yaquina Head Lighthouse at the right time, and had awesome weather.

There were sea stars, anemones, mussels, and so much marine life to observe at every step that it entertained us for a whole hour.

A few days later, their mom brought the boys out to our weekend place and as always, Ed asked the four year old if he wanted a flight with Grandpa in the airplane. For the first time, the answer was – yes! Really? There’s barely room for mom and son to sit in the front seat of the 1946 Piper Cub – and be strapped in.

We all expected a quick meltdown but:

AFTER HIS FIRST FLIGHT - HIS SMILE WAS EVEN BIGGER UP IN THE AIR.
