Our delightful younger daughter (1) just turned 20 yesterday. When her mom asked her a couple weeks back what she wanted for her birthday, Laura (born on the Feast of St. Lawrence, ‘natch) Anna Kate, know as Anna Kate, thought about it, and decided: I want to jump out of an airplane.
After her usual practice, she researched, made a few calls and set it up. Skydive California is near Tracy, California, about an hour’s drive from Concord. She also asked her older brother Thomas to jump with her.
I took the day off to watch. On the morning of her birthday, we headed out to Tracy, and she and her brother jumped, as the certificate says, “out of a perfectly functioning aircraft.”
Boarding the plane:
As you can see, they came out of it in two perfectly functioning pieces.
- Of course, all our kids are delightful in my totally unbiased opinion
