5 Years!

To celebrate our 5th anniversary, we took a little trip down to the Outer Banks of North Carolina.

This area is probably most famous for being the site where Orville and Wilbur first flew.  In this spirt, we started the weekend off with a bit of kite flying:

The kite festival was also going on as you can see:

We also paid our respects to the Wright Brothers by visiting the Wright Brothers National Memorial.

Little known fact: I share a birthday with Orville Wright (as well as Bill Clinton and Gene Rodenberry).

With aviation all around us, we decided to take to the skies ourselves.  For $99, you can strap yourself into a wing and run off the side of sand dune as well.

We documented our flights a little better than those brothers.  All they can up with was one grainy black & white photograph:

And so, for your viewing pleasure, here are the first 5 unpowered flights of our family: (I accidentally deleted Stephers’ 4th)
