Flying High

Happy 4th of July! I thought I would do a post on our flying adventure, since it kinda relates to the 4th- sky, flying, being in the air. I dunno, in my head it kinda relates :)
Dress- modcloth; jacket- anthropologie; shoes- urban outfitters
Tad surprised me with an airplane ride around Los Angeles last week and it was an awesome experience! We flew by the hollywood sign, around downtown LA, and to the coastline. I let Tad sit in the front because it had more leg room but the pilot surprised us both by letting Tad fly the plane! Hey wait a minute- I'm the birthday girl! But I'm actually glad it was him and not me flying because Tad did a very good job whereas I would have probably freaked out!
This was the plane we took
I must admit, I was a little nervous when Tad was flying- especially when the pilo told himto do a 180 degree turn!
I even saw my workplace from the plane!

We did all this at Rotor FX in Van Nuys and we loved them! Everyone was super nice and friendly, and they even took photos of us and sent us home with pictures and a CD. They offer flying lessons too...maybe in the future? Have you ever flown a plane? Or are you like me and a little scared of flying?

Have a happy 4th of July and be safe!!

Definitely one of my more enjoyable experiences so far. I think it'd be good to get a pilots license, if nothing else, to prepare for a possible zombie apocalypse. :)

Thanks Odessa! It was a little scary but after a while I was able to relax a little bit and enjoy the ride!
