Kenzie's first HELICOPTER RIDE!!

Hearing the sound of a low-flying helicopter over your neighborhood is usually quite surreal.  Makes you wonder what's up?  LifeNet?  Police Copter? 
Not in this case...
Luckily this time it was just some Helicopter company offering up rides in the sky...for fun...for a minimal fee of course.
McKenzie was pretty stoked.  Of course, she kept bugging & bugging us to take her on it.  She and her & daddy visited a couple times and talked with the pilot dude about the details.
Last Sunday, she finally had her chance.  She was thrilled!!
Going UP!!
hair flyin' in the wind.
Macy watched from down below!  She had to stay back with G&G Lee.  :-)
lots of lakes around these parts...that's Westshores...
Lawrence Youngman Lake
Riverside...part of the Ski Lake & part of the fishing lake...near the Elkhorn River.
It's pretty awesome seeing Western Douglas County from this bird's eye perspective.  I grew up here, and have seen all of these sights...but never from this vantage point!  At least from this vantage point so low to the ground.  :)
You could really get a first-hand glimpse of the effects of this drought we are in.  The ground is so dry & SO BROWN!  Pretty sad really.
the back of our house...
"look mom, I can see my house!!"
Our wonderful Bethany Lutheran Church.  :-)
aerial view of G&G Lee's you can see he's remodeling the gazeebo & hot-tub slightly!  Crazy crazy man!
Waterloo!!!  My beloved hometown  :-)
Dalton, Dylan & Colton took a ride with Grandpa Lee the day prior.  :)  Some of these pics were from their camera too!
Ta-Ha-Zouka Park
front of Travis' new place.
Back of Travis' place.
more of Riverside.
It's difficult to see...but this is me, Joe & Kenzie climbing in the copter.
Kenzie's next door neighbor-friend Hannah went on an impromptu adventure with her Aunt Cheryl.  They posted this pic to FB and I HAD to steal it.  Could she seriously look any more excited!  Such a sweet smile!  :-)  She's got one very cool Auntie.  btw - Hannah LOVES "babysitting" Macy, and is always asking us when she can do it next.  hehe
