My awesome hubby took all four children to Night Glow at the Art and Air Festival while I was at book club discussing The Jungle by Upton Sinclair. He is awesome (and The Jungle is depressing, but my fellow book club peeps are marvelous).
Not only did he take all for kids to Night Glow, but he got up at the crack of dawn (which he is used to due to his work schedule) and took the older two boys to see the balloons lift off in the morning.
Not only did he get up in the early morning hours and take the boys to see the balloons, he headed over to the airport to stand in line for a very long time to sign the boys up for Young Eagle flights.
Lola, Leif, and I joined them at the airport. Lola thought it was a place full of wonder.
Then it was time for the older boys to head out on their flights. Luke had been looking forward to this for a year. He was too young last year, but a pilot was at the airport giving free rides to younger kids! Luke is never one to turn down adventure!
Levi wasn’t quite as gung-ho. He is more timid when it comes to dangerous adventure, and he had never wanted to go flying before. But he did very well, and said he would love to go again!
I took the younger kids home for a nap (well, Lola got one), and the rest of the boys stayed to help my dad with his World War II display at the airport. Later in the afternoon they all came home to eat dinner and rest up for our evening adventure…
