DC-3

This weekend, Jeff, Jacob and I drove to Shelbyville, TN to see the American Airlines DC-3 Flagship Detroit. Why is this so interesting??? Well, Jeff's grandfather, Poppy, flew planes like this for American Airlines after serving in World War II. Here's some pictures of our day with the DC-3. It's hard to believe that was almost 70 years ago.

They were doing a little work on the engines and cleaning up the inside when we were there, but they let us look around and even go inside.





Jacob acting like a gentleman in the passengers' seats. What a happy guy!

This week has been quite an adventure with Jacob. He spent the week crawling all over the house and working his way through all the rooms. Yesterday he was crawling over to the window in the dining room and we stepped into the kitchen for a second, and when we turned back, he was STANDING at the windowsill. Since then, we've seen him pull to stand twice, but have not caught it on video just yet. Wow...what a blessing!

Hope you are having a wonderful day. Thanks for checking in with us.

  1. Looks like you all had a great time. I know his 'Poppy' was looking down and smiling.
