Grown Kids...

OHMYGAWD...my older son jumped out of a perfectly good airplane yesterday!

If I had known he was going to do this, I would have sent him to his room!!
He thought it was a blast, but just the pictures took years off my life.
There's no controlling grown kids, but I'd sure like to know how he got this old this fast.

Those photos are ahmaaaazing, Kayelle! Nice to look at...with my feet planted firmly on the ground. Besides, it's no big deal for your, what, 40-something son? After all George HW Bush skydived when he was 90.

Total fact in CG Land: once born, children age (at least) twice as fast as their parents. Just sayin'...

This picture cracks me up..after the fact. The truth is, he comes from daredevil blood. His Dad was a professional drag boat racer at this age, and I'd rather have him jump out of a plane once.

I'm green with envy. I've always wanted to do that. Sadly, given the Health & Safety regs over here, they probably don't let almost 70 year old ladies do it. I would have thought that old age is the best time to do things like that as it wouldn't be such a disaster if the worst happened!

Mad cook? Odd, because in Scotland there is no age restriction for Tandem jumps.
