Guest Post # 2: It's a Guy Thing!

No cutsie pictures of the kids or flowers today, so you know it has to be someone else authoring this time!

Today Chrissy has given Jacob and I (Brian) the "opportunity" to do a guest post on her blog (Truth be told - I don't remember it being a request...).  
It's been a nice mellow Saturday for us around here.  Jacob had a birthday party for a friend, but that and a couple of errands was all that was on the schedule.  

When I went to pick Jacob up from the party, I thought it would be fun to drive up and see if we could get close enough to see the gigantic helicopter we saw flying over North Salt Lake carrying something.  I know, that's a guy thing (or so I've been told).  We found that it was actually carrying huge lengths of pipe for a natural gas line and we were able to get pretty close to the action!  

Here, I'll let Jacob tell you about the pictures since he was the photographer for the day:

Photo # 1 - Landing for refueling.

Photo #2
You can see the propeller blades bending from the weight.

Photo #3
It was amazing to see how fast they could load the pipes.

Jacob's part:
It was good to take a drive and get out of the house (even though the helicopter bit made me nauseous).  The b-day party was good, but there were few people there I knew. there was a piƱata ,and half is in my room.  I know, it's a guy thing!

(Brian again) We were close enough that after staring at the gigantic whirling blades Jacob had a little motion sickness!  

So there you have it.  My second post, with some help from Jacob.  It was a fun day and proof that sometimes the weekends with the lightest schedules can be some of the funnest.
