What a wonderful field trip today! I don't know who enjoyed it more, the kids or the adults! The kids participated in the Young Eagles Pilot Program. They had a tour of a few WWII planes then they got to fly in a small private plane. Our children flew in a Cessna 172. DS was co-pilot and was actually able to try flying the aircraft on his own for a couple of minutes. He was soooo excited! The flight lasted for about 20 minutes. Now the kids want to go back again today! LOL Here they are getting out of the plane after their ride:

They said they flew all around Wellsboro and saw the PA Grand Canyon from the air. We then took them to the PA Grand Canyon to enjoy it from the "ground". It's a beautiful spot - so quiet and so high up!! There's a wonderful lookout and trails one can take. If you ever venture to PA - this is a must to visit!

Then we took the kids to NY for dinner and to visit Barnes & Nobles. They love that bookstore!!! We picked up a few books for homeschool and I found Socks Socks Socks from the Knitter's Magazine Contest. It is just amazing!! The book has 70 patterns and I've chosen many of them to make in the near future. It's one of those books I know I'll be using again and again.

I didn't do much for knitting, just a couple more rows on the Weekend Sweater.
