Today, we went to Brantley's birthday party at Fly By Cafe. Kerry, Brantley's mom, had arranged for lunch at the cafe and helicopter rides! We were pretty excited, since none of us had ever ridden on a helicopter before. Andrea and Paige didn't ride, but I did with Connor and Collin (Collin plays soccer with Connor's Giant Alligators team).
The helicopter ride was a neat experience. The pilot took off by hovering off to the right as he lifted off and it was a weird feeling to fly sideways. We got up a hundred feet or so and then went out over the beach and ocean for a minute or two and then flew back to the airport. We all enjoyed the view and the ride, it was a unique experience.
After the rides, everyone sang Happy Birthday to Brantley and then we gobbled up some cupcakes.
