The Colonel's New Hobby

I think my husband is going through a mid life crisis. He's given up golf (apparently, he's a horrible player now). He's given up his trains (he's done all he can w/ the space he has, or so he says). And he's on to something new...

Remote controlled airplanes! His first venture is a mini stealth bomber. But, he has his eye on several others, as well as an RC boat. Oh boy. We're in trouble.

Tonight we went out as a family to try out the plane. It's just made of foam so we have to make sure it's not windy. And, HELLO, we live in Kansas...it's very rarely ever NOT windy. But, tonight it was calm, so off to the park we went.

It was so fun to watch him fly the bomber around. Of course, Lil Major loved it, too, and when he wasn't picking dandelions and trying to eat them, he was watching his daddy intently.

Oh Lord...Dan's already been through that hobby. and the trains....and the golf....What are we going to do with these men?? I actually like the rc stuff, I'm sure we'll break all that stuff back out when Finn get's older. I swear Brian & Dan could be brothers. :)

Those things can be really expensive but they are fun! Sometimes I'm glad Shaun works so much so he doesn't have time for hobbies! :) He loves golf but never has time to play.

that stealth is a whole lot louder than the real thing!! i don't think micah would like that at first just b/c of the noise. he freaks out at weird/loud noises (like the coffee grinder, disposal, and blender!). did dad get one, too?

My boy loves loud noises...he attacks the vacuum cleaner and tries to ride on top of it and he just stares at the blender. Dad is getting one this weekend, while we're out of town. We're in trouble!!

I bet you just love watching him follow his daddy around.

It's always fun to see a father and son "at work." Looks like your hubby needs to work on the landing portion of the flight - ha! Have fun in Dallas.

your hubby is cracking me up right now!

and too funny that lil major likes to pick dandelions. reminds me of baby lion Alex on Madagascar2--he was chasing butterflies when his daddy lion was trying to fight.

at the end of the second one sounds like Colonel is very happy with his new toy!

My kid just got a remote control helicopter. Great.... it starts early too. That park is right across the street of the store I used to work at full-time. Now I only go in to check on them.

Boys and their toys!

Good for him! We tried that one to no avail. No patience with it. Rather be wakeboarding, I guess. :) Lil Major is getting SO big and he's such a doll! (you know, a masculine, military-type doll! :) )
