Look What Landed by our House.....

What could all of these kids be walking towards?

What could make Ella drop her jaw in amazement?

This helicopter! One afternoon last week, we heard this loud noise outside so we ran to the window and saw this helicopter landing behind our house. It was SO LOUD! Ella was amazed. We sat and watched it for minute and I noticed that the propellers were stopping. So I told Ella, if we hurry up and get our shoes and coat on, we could run out there and see what was going on.

We live a couple of doors down from an elementary school and apparently this helicopter came to visit the kids at the school. So we walked up to the school and over to the helicopter that landed in the baseball field. It was so cool.

It was a really neat thing to happen in the middle of the day when nothing was going on. Not only was it a treat for the kids at the school, but it was a treat for Ella and I.

What a wonderful experience that just dropped in your back yard (so to speak)! Love the photo of Ella's expression ~ pure wonder and awe.

Now THAT is seriously cool. Can you imagine anything more exciting in the world of a child? I bet that made her month.

How cool is that? That shot of Ella with the socked expression on her face is great.

That's awesome! What fun to have a helicopter land practically in your background. I'm envious of the elementary school what a treat for those kids. :) They'll be telling stories for years to come about this one.
