Comments Off on Up, Up and Away in the Jelly Belly Airplane

A few days before the Abbotsford International Airshow Sophie and I were given the opportunity to go for a flight. Actually, let me correct that. I was given the opportunity and I was able to bring the kids along to get some photos of them by/in the Jelly Belly Airplane. As we walked towards the pilot and a few others we could here them say, “Do you think they would both fit?”

We met the pilot of the aircraft, Kent Pietsch, and a few others who were there to help us get ready for a little flight. Kent then asked if I would like to have Sophie join me for the ride. “That would be amazing!” I said and kneeled down to ask Sophie if she wanted to go for a ride too. She was beaming!

After a few minutes we were hopping in the back of the Jelly Belly airplane and Kent was buckling us up getting ready to go. Forgive my lack of knowledge for this word, but there was a ‘handle’ between my legs in the back that could be used for steering the aircraft. Kent let me know that as we were going up he was going to have me fly the plane. Once we got to the right altitude, that is. Not gonna lie, I was pretty unsure about my abilities here.

Up, up and away we went and he asked me to take flight. His hands off his ‘handle’ and my hands fully guiding the plane with mine. Talk about adrenaline rush! It was crazy looking outside as the smoke from the BC Wild Fires was still very heavy. When we would normally be able to see mountains far and wide, it was a smokey sky and vast farm land below.

At this point Sophie was still beaming from ear to ear. We were taking it nice and slow as I wasn’t about to make any fast movements. Kent let me know that he could do a stall in the air. Turning the aircraft off within mid air will make the nose dip down and then he would recover it quickly bringing us back up again. Sounds pretty cool to me.

Down we went for about half a second and to my left I hear, “Mommy, I didn’t like that. Let’s go back now.” Then, “I think I feel sick Mommy, my stomach feels weird.” Thinking that maybe it was just from the dip we waited a minute but she wasn’t beaming anymore. Someone was over it. That was enough tricks for her, so back we went. That beaming smile turned to a concerned frown and neither of us wanted her to be feeling anymore sick.

After we landed, very gracefully I might add, it didn’t take long for Sophie to start feeling a bit better. She was back to hanging around the airplane and giving me some pretty cute smiles in front of the camera. She for sure had an amazing time, just maybe no stalls for her the next time we are inside an airplane.

When we headed to the airshow this weekend it was so cool to see Kent preform his acts. He is known for having his airplane loose parts mid flight, engines that quit mid flight (got a little taste of that myself), and landing on top of moving vehicles. He preformed all three acts at the Abbotsford International Airport this weekend, did you see him?

Thank you so much to Kent Pietsch and the Abbotsford International Airshow + Brew North Strong for the opportunity to take this flight. Sophie and I were beyond thrilled with the experience.

A little saying I picked up from the latest issue of @maplemagazinecanada that came in my Maple Box. The whole concept of their magazine and the Maple Box is to create comfort and coziness along with encouraging a healthier well-being for yourself (I like it!). I discovered new-to-me products within their quarterly box (take a look at my IG stories for a closer look inside) and love the attention to detail and quality organic products. #ad #themaplebox #maplemagazine
  • A selfie success I’d say. 🐶
  • When I started working out around the house more Ezra asked me, “Why are you doing those exercises all the time now?” and I responded by saying, “Because I want to be stronger.” That’s what inspired this photo and my “strong” pose.

For the next couple of months, I have partnered with @planetfitnessca and will be sharing more about what I am doing to take care of myself and bring those home workouts to the gym while I check out their Abbotsford location.

P.S. did you know that a PF Black Card membership allows you to bring a friend for a free workout every time you go in?? Comment below if you want to be

  • Don’t be fooled by our matching outfits and their cute faces, the majority of my photos looked like photo two and three.
  • We’ve been under the weather (mainly the kids 🤒 ) for what seems like forrrreverrrr!! We bundled up anyways and took in some of this ❄️ snow and even though it’s cold AF and our 🐕 puppy might be the biggest wimp of all it was definitely worth it.
  • I like pink drinks and I can not lie. ⠀

I also love my SodaStream! I am so excited to share that I'll be creating more deliciousness with @sodastreamcanada this year as they asked me to join their #streamteam for the second year. Last year I learnt so much about how they are changing the world with bubbles, reducing waste and turning so many pop drinkers into sparkling water lovers. Best part is, you use tap water from your home so whenever you want to make bubbly water (as my kids say) it's so easy! #partner⠀
