Planes, Planes Planes!

My head was spinning with ideas for his 2nd birthday photos!  First, I really wanted to take him to see airplanes. Andrew can spot them high in the sky...any day...any time! So, we got in contact with a friend who actually manages Reigle Airport in PA.  After three rain delays, we finally found a cloudy but no rain evening to head over for some exciting shots!!

That is a picture of my Grandfather looking out of a fighter plane in WW2. That is his lifejacket hanging on the suitcase. Before my Grandmother passed last month, I shared this idea with her and she was so excited to see the pictures. I just wished I would have been able to have shown her.

Andrew was taken off guard by how loud those airplanes can be! 

It took him a little bit to start and reach for the gadgets. He would not let go of me :)

 I was ready to take off and head to the beach!

They found this small plane in one of the hangers and cleaned it off for him. It was super cute!!!

These two pictures are some of my favorites. They were also the last two photos taken that day. 
He looks so mature...

I wasn't sure how to dress him for these photos..I kept it simple, Gap Jeans and Sweater, Freshly Picked Moccasins! Note to self, next year plan to have pictures taken in the summer when the sun is out and the temps are much warmer :)
