My little TWO YEAR OLD (wow that is a hard one to type, he is growing up way to fast) has a mad passion for PLANES right now. We live in the flight plan of all the major airlines, who land at PDX, also we are surrounded by private smaller airports, therefore everyday we have plane after plane flying directly over our ranch. The kiddo lets us know when they are flying over, even on cloudy days. HE HAS EXCELLENT PLANE RADAR…he can hear them before he spots them in the sky.
My Father and Uncle own a small plane and are both certified pilots (for more info see my Sky High post). Cason knows that his Grandpa or otherwise known as “Gee” (Cason started calling him “G” but now it is “Gee” and has stuck…”Granny and Gee” has a nice ring to it) has a plane and scrolls through “Gee’s” IPhone to see pictures of his plane. For months he has been begging to see the plane, therefore for his birthday wish we made a special trip to the aviation airport just for him to see and sit in the plane. My only intentions were for him to sit in the plane and look at all the controls, watch a few planes take off and land. I mean we were not going to up in the air, this kiddo is super scared of the car wash…he wouldn’t want to fly in a small plane.
But he saw the planes taking off and said he wanted to fly in the sky… so we loaded up in the plane and were ready for takeoff, headphones and all! (Sorry about the close up, some fuzzy pic’s…we were sitting so close it was hard for me to zoom in and out, in focus…plus I am not camera savvy)!
These are noise canceling headphones and voice activated for everyone to hear/communicate to each other in the plane, you can also hear the tower and other pilots. They were a 2 year olds favorite new toy…he loved talking into them and hearing everyone respond back to his little sweet “hi…hi…hi”.
We flew low and it was a nice day, so you could see everything below…why not fly over the ranch and do a little fly by to the Dada.
This special little guy’s birthday wish came true and he was on “cloud 9” for the rest of the evening, which was followed up by a birthday dinner (next to the water, his 2nd request) and then a chocolate sundae!
Sneak Peek: Cason Turns Two Photo Shoot was a huge success. Can’t wait to share all the perfect pics. BTW the theme to his Birthday Bash is “Vintage Airplane”!
