Topgun meets Legally Blond.

I'm sure most of you know, but for those who don't -
The hubs is in flight school with the Navy!

This is the day he got his flight suit! isn't he handsome!?! :)

He just recently finished the first phase (API)
and has now moved onto the second phase (Primary).
The great thing about Primary is that we're now attached with a "squadron"! :)

It's like Topgun meets Legally Blond.

You get to dress up in your husband's flight suit ...

complete with helmet, gloves, visor & mic ...

and taxi a T-34 Navy Training Jet.

That's me in the backseat - "driving"!!

Did you know that you steer airplanes with foot petals and not a steering wheel?
I didn't! :) and since I can't even drive a standard ....
and the whole coordination of two feet at one time thing ...
I clearly wasn't the best pilot! ;)

But at least I looked like I knew what I was doing!! :)

I even got an "official" certificate signed by the commander for completing my first "taxi".

and the funniest part is that since my husband is still in "ground school" (the academic portion of flight school), I got to sit in the cockpit of the plane before he did! ;)

So he was slightly jealous! :)
You see - this boy has wanted to fly since he was FOUR!!!!
He is living his dream!
It's amazing to watch him LOVE what he does everyday!

so this ... 

is his version of heaven!!! :)

and for one day - it was a family affair ---
Even monkey man had on a flight suit!!

Please ignore the pacifier! Mommy was being selfish and flying planes rather than enforcing nap time -- which led to one very fussy little monster monkey!

Until I put the helmet on ... then he LOVED that! :)

It was such a great day!
It was so great to experience what the hubs does everyday,
even if it was only a LITTLE taste of his world! :)

Move over Maverick ....
