Planes and Trains and a Birthday to Remember

I didn’t check out the math…but I’m just guessing that Karla was right when she said that as of two days ago I had been alive for 16, 436 days.  That sounds like a big number… but you know what?  It’s not even depressing to me as these multiples of 5 can often be. 
 
Again, I’ll never tire of saying this: “I’m just happy to be here” and enjoy days like this with my family. I wanted to pass along some cool pictures I was able to shoot from the plane ride that Benj and I took on Saturday morning September 19, 2009 and also a couple pics of “the real Thomas.”
 
We (the pilot Brian Bean, Benj and I)  took off from the Winterset airport at about 9:00 a.m. and flew around central Iowa for about an hour and a half.  The world looks entirely different from 500-1000 feet above the earth than it does from ground level.  It was an awesome day for a plane ride!
