Thanks to this guy's awesome wife, there were five REALLY giddily happy guys the other night! Rachel surprised Micah with a night of iFlying! Eric was lucky to join in on the fun and I was uber lucky to get to laugh my butt off for probably 2 hours straight. High speed air hitting one's face does some beautifully funny things! The pictures suck, sorry, but I did what I could (plexi glass = no flash, semi-dark room = I need a flash!, so I went without and got a bunch of blurry pics)!!
 These are the three who moved into my single's ward six years ago! I instantly had my eye on Eric! Jeremiah and Micah could tell because I guess I was "smiling too much at Eric not to be interested". Go figure. I probably looked like a crazy person - whatever - it got me what I wanted :) 
 Jeremiah insisted on helping Cameron with his outfit. As you can tell from Cameron's face, he was reeeealy grateful.
Red power ranger briefing the group.
 A little cousin affection on the sidelines.
 Rachel documenting the adventure on film, thankfully, because iFly gave the DVD that Rachel bought to the other group flying with us, nice....
Yep those earplugs did end up in his ears eventually...yum!

 See! Giddy as a schoolboy!!!

The Flyers:

Dallas - serious at all times, and in all things, and in all places, or at least while flying with a man holding on to him!
 Eric - perma grin!
Micah - love the cheeks!! (Don't be embarrassed, my cheeks would have flapped too)

Jeremiah - "mouth wide open flying is the way to go, especially since my nostrils are toned enough not to look like that one guys...."

Cameron - not serious at all times, and in all things, and in all places!
Admiring Dallas flying above them - getting even more stoked!!!
 Does this face not scream Liesl from the Sound of Music?... when she finishes singing "I am 16 going on 17" and then screams "Weeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!" Go watch that part, you'll know what I mean!
 His smile got bigger and bigger with every passing second!
 I think I saw a little smile 
 Beaver mouth! The wind did wonders for your smile Cam!
Fill those cheeks!!

The same face you were pulling when you took me Latin dancing years ago, but even more intense. Air dancing must be much more euphoric!
 Uh Jeremiah, did you forget people were watching....?
 Cameron the ballerino!!
 "Am I flying, am I flying?"
 "Whatever you do, don't look down!"  
And to end the night, Micah let Reese ride on his dad's bear and she snuggled right into it. She loved nuzzling her face into its thick furry coat.

Wow... Now those are some entertaining pics!! My stomach hurts from laughing right now! Nice work

You documented this perfectly! Micah and I both laughed a lot while looking at each of these. Great descriptions of each "flyer". That was so much fun! We'll have to try filling our cheeks with air next time:)

That looks like a good time. I'm sure some good laughs were had with that group. I went over Christmas break. It was awesome!

Looks like so much fun - I asked Steve if he wanted to do it for his birthday - I got a big NO :)
