Flying!

Since hubby has always talked about becoming a pilot, his parents & I gave him a 1 hr. flight instruction for his birthday.  We went to Kathy Samuelson of Columbus Flight Instruction out of Port Columbus International Airport.  (She was terrific, by the way.)  My brother-in-law and I went up, too, and it was AWESOME!

Our plane was a Cessna 172.  It looked tiny from the outside, but inside it was actually quite roomy.
