Kyle and I headed over to Hick's Airfield to meet my parents. My mom gave my dad flying lessons for his birthday a few years ago and she agreed that if he got his license she would go up with him. (Side note: my mom hates flying) She stayed true to her word and flew from Northwest airport in Roanoke to Hick's Airfield and met us for breakfast.

|Pretty awesome to be waiting for my parents to fly in for breakfast|
|Dad was flying|
|Look how cute they are!|
|Here's the breakfast menu|

|I think we were over Rhome when I took this picture|
|All the controls, there are so many!|
|At the Decatur Airport Terminal|
|It's impossible to take a good picture with those headphones on|

|Dad was concentrating|
|I waited til we were safely on the ground before taking a pic with the pilot|

Kyle is doing a 30-hour famine with the student ministry, something World Vision has organized over the years. You can read about the details here. He couldn't eat after 12:30, so even though we had a late breakfast, and he wasn't really hungry, we had to get him a snack before the cut off.
The rest of the night was pretty low-key. Kyle was gone so Bud and I hung out--I did laundry and planned out meals for next week. Then we went to the park for a nice walk, and I had a mug brownie when I got back. If you've never tried a mug brownie here is a link to the recipe I use. I usually half the recipe, cause it makes plenty and it definitely needs ice cream.
|Grilled chicken wrap from Wendy's was the final decision|
|My lunch was a green smoothie|
|Kyle and Buddy spent some time playing after we got home|
|After Kyle headed out, Bud rested while I read|
|And then we both rested, can you see how long his legs are stretched out?|
Hope your Friday was good!
