its a bird, no its a plane....

What?? It's a bird?... no, it's a plane..... NO it's Romney 13,000 feet high in the air.



Here is where it all started on the ground. They took a little class before the jump and were ready to go. This big skydiving day was for Ethan. He turned the big 3-0. Ethan and Romney have been best friends since they were young pups. Here for the jump was his brother James and our bishop.


Ethan screamed the whole way down apparently


Here comes Romney ready to land


Phew
they landed safe and sound. They had a blast and would do it again in a heart beat.

Fun had by all. The tandem (the guys that are attached to you) jumpers were fantastic with the funniest little personalities. I cant wait for my turn. Next time its for the girls...

I don't think I have the guts to do that, but at the same time I would love to know how it feels to free fall....screaming hysterically the whole way down!

Lucky! It's Rog and I just got home from work not to long ago. busy, busy. Rom-kudos on the shot of ethan. So rad! I wish I could have gone. sorry. Question: did james face get flat on the way down and stay that way or what? No offense James, but your face looks really wide. Is it?

That screaming expression is classic! So funny! I am afraid of heights, so there is NO WAY I would go, unless I had to save one of my children or something. :)
