First Flight


Yesterday we took Richard on his first airplane ride.  We went to Willows (north of Sacramento) to have lunch with a group of Bob's airplane friends.  Richard wasn't terribly keen on the airplane.  We started off well, with a bottle for take-off.  After he was done with the bottle Richard was a little grumpy.  Its unclear whether he disliked his headset, the vibration, the noise or was just not impressed with the whole situation.  After about 15 minutes of fussing he fell asleep for his mid-day nap.  He then slept through the rest of the flight, a very long lunch and the entire flight home.  (The kid is a good napper.)

  Meanwhile, Anthony got to be co-pilot.  For once he didn't complain about having to ride in "Daddy's stinky airplane."  He liked the improved view from the front windows and steered the plane for about 10 seconds before going back to his movie.  I'm glad he enjoyed being co-pilot as I think he's got a lot of that in his future.
