I Fly, You Fly, We All Flew at iFly!

A couple Saturdays ago, we did the unthinkable (at least for me, since I am afraid of heights): WE FLEW!!!!

We celebrated Julie's 30th birthday with an indoor skydiving excursion at iFly, followed by a delicious dinner at Buca Di Beppo. This was our baby step to the real deal, sky diving. Ha ha, who am I kidding. It'll be a million years before you see me voluntarily jump off a plane. (Maybe if I can bring my camera, hmm...)

Anyways, it was definitely a fun and interesting experience. I compare it with snorkeling vs. scuba diving. If you never plan to scuba dive, snorkeling gives you a taste of it. But it's not the same.

Thanks to Julie for inspiring us to fly and thanks to Carol for helping us takes all these pictures and videos. The pictures came out amazing!


The Flight Crew


The birthday girl was very excited...


...and delirious.


This is as close to sky-diving as the Lo's will ever get


Safety first


Julie giving us the thumbs up! She is ready to fly!

You can see Carol in the background capturing Eric in flight-motion.

Mike demonstrating the perfect flying posture

Andrea checking out the instructor to make sure he is watching and ready to catch her!

All of a sudden, Julie remembers she is bidding farewell to her 20s. Hence the pout.

Julie perks up when she realizes there are birthday gifts waiting for her to open.

The birthday girl is diving (no pun intended) into her tiramisu!

Check out this animated gif! I wasn't able to upload the file in Blogger, so I borrowed Brandon's photo gallery to post it. It's a really funny animation of Julie! Also, while you are at Brandon's gallery, check out his work!
