A Day With The “Ai-Panes”

Gravelly Point is a grassy park a few hundred yards from the runway at National Airport where planes scream as they come in for a landing just overhead. Another place we can go to feel close to our girl. “Ai-pane” was one of her favorite words, and picking them out of the sky was one of her favorite activities.  Her brother appears set to follow in her footsteps.

  1. Thank you for wonderful Hudson and Jackson pics. He always seems to appreciate Hudson's special places, doesn't he? That jolly ol' chubster!

    Love, Rebecca

  4. SO, Ed got a snuggler, huh? Seriously, these two sets are great. I can just see Jackson looking up at the airplane, and missing it entirely because he can see his sister in ways you and I can't.

  8. Agh, I was trying to spell "cruel"...
    English is my second language and I still make mistakes even after 10 years of speaking/writing it.
