Mom and Dad went skydiving

Mom and Dad went sykdiving on Sunday. It was dad's 40th birthday present from back in September, and they happened to schedule it on their 17th wedding anniversary. FYI -- if something happened to them, we would end up with Aunt Tiff. Dad said we'd have to teach her cats how no to hide whenever someone came over to visit. Fortunately, it didn't some to that, but there was a plan.

Skydive Jeni and Dean in the plane on the way up
Here are Mom and Dad in the plane on the way up to 14,000 feet. They look pretty happy for people who are about to jump out of a plane.

Skydive Jeni
This is Mom during her free fall. They go 120 mph during the fall, although they said it feels more like you are flying.

Skydive Dean
And here is Dad during his free fall. They are nuts, because they are already planning their next jump. But they said it was so much fun, they can't wait to do it again.

I really like to be in high spots, but the top of the stairs or the top of the cabinets will suffice for me. But I'm glad Mom and Dad had fun. And to answer what most people say to Mom: no, she was not scared, and yes, her jump partner was really good looking.

Our mom says your parents are crazy! She prefers her feet firmly on the ground.

The Woman went skydiving once. She loved it. She really wanted to go again, but time, money and finding someone who wanted to jump out of a plane were so hard to find...Will he learn to jump on his own?!

My human is intrigued by sky diving but she is afraid she would pee herself with fright! Seriously, that is the main thing that is keeping her from doing it.

My mom won't even get on a plane any more, let alone jump from one. But I'm glad your folks had fun!

The Woman thinks your people are insane, but that's only because she doesn't have the cojones to even watch people do that.
