Egan loves them. Like loves them a lot. It just so happens that my dad has an airplane, and he flew into our area the other day.
Egan had a blast being so close to the runway watching all the airplanes take off and land. He also had a good time having free run of an airplane. What boy wouldn't?
We also went to the airplane museum nearby. If I had a $ for every time Egan pointed and said "AIRPLANE", I'd have at least $137. Here's a sampling of what we saw.
Egan even suckered his pilot Grandad into a pilot hat for himself. I dn't think he had to try too hard. I think all he had to say was "hat!"
Anyway, Egan enjoyed another few minutes at the wheel until Grandad had to leave. He takes his job quite seriously.
Then, we watched the airplane takeoff into the clouds. Egan has been wearing his "cool hat" every since that day.
We might have a new pilot in the family.
