On Saturday we went to a model airplane show in Lehi at a special model airplane airport. It was fun to see all the different plane types and the tricks these planes could do. Gage loved trying to find the planes in the air and being able to be so close to the action. Devin and my dad loved discussing the different plane types. They both have a model plane of their own. My dad built his from scratch (it took several years) and I doubt we'll ever get him to put it in the air again. Devin's came a little more preassembled with the intent that they both could practice flying it and not be out the hard work. They have each only flown once and that was before my parents moved from Salina with the help of a friend who flies often, just to prove that their planes could fly. They are to chicken to try again. Apparently they aren't easy to land. The people flying at the show go out to this airport regularly to practice and invited them out to learn and practice. So maybe we will see their planes in the air again!
This would be Brett sitting under the tree all by himself. He wasn't as into it as the rest of us. (He didn't spend much time there, we just needed to make fun of him!)The hit of the show was the flying lawnmower, and it flew pretty well. It was a bit odd to see that thing flying around though!
