Surprise Father's Day Activity

A month or two ago Nathan had the (crazy) idea that he wanted to try skydiving. I didn't want to say anything that would squash a lifelong dream or anything, but I was thinking, "No way, Jose!" Then a few weeks later S was watching a kids t.v. show where they work on science projects and activites that's filmed locally and there was a segment on indoor skydiving. S said she wanted to give it a try so I looked in to it and found the place the show was talking about. It's called Sky Venture and it ended up being only 45 minutes away from home!

So we kept everything a secret from Nathan and planned to take him and the whole family (you have to be at least 3 to do it) and we headed up the day before Father's Day. He ended up having a slight idea on what we had planned - apparenty he had done a lot of internet research and knew that indoor skydiving existed...boy, he's so hard to suprise. Well, I could suprise him by taking him to tea or giving him a pedicure, but he wouldn't be pleased with those.... So, anyway, we had a lot of fun. We all got to fly for just over 4 mintues each! It was a lot of fun and we really do highly recommend it to anyone!

With indoor skydiving you don't actually dive or jump, simply lean into the vertical wind and with a split second you are soaring! It's not scary at all!

If J can do it, so can you! He was such a brave little boy. The instructor didn't let go of Jayden at all, which was probably good since he's so light he might have flown away!

At the end of your second flying session the instructor flew with you so you got to go really high up into the tunnerl! It was fun!
