Each year instead of a birthday party we let the boys choose one fun activity. We have done everything from picnics and movies to bowling and rock climbing. This year, however, when contemplating Eli's birthday we decided that we would choose FOR him. What does a nine year old want to do more than almost anything? Fly in a plane.
On Elijah's ninth birthday he went on an adventure with dad. The day started and ended with a ride in a little cessna plane from Augusta to Boston. Sandwiched between the flights was a day exploring the Museum of Science in the heart of Boston. Riding the T, lunch at the cafe, and learning how exhibits work were all highlights of Eli's day. The best of the best though? Getting to ride in the copilot's seat all the way back to Maine. What a ride!
Happy Birthday Elijah!
