Itching for something kid friendly and free, we took Preston out to Hook's airport one Saturday. It's small, but gets plenty of action with planes taking off and landing. The cafe was closed since it was Easter weekend (I know, I know, I'm playing catch up), but who needs food when the aviation school that neighbors the airport let us come and play in their hangar and on their runway. I nearly fainted when they put Preston in one of the planes. They definitely read his mind.
Preston was absolutely beside himself, and Mr. Gherkin, well, aviation is his dream. Those two were over the top giddy.
Before leaving, we hung out in the shade, by the pond, and watched the ducks swim and the planes fly over.
