all grown up now 2

My youngest, Hannah turned 18 today - happy b'day hanzie! She's out clubbing with mates at the moment. They're having a scavenger hunt, wearing costumes and probably getting a little wasted (but in a good way I hope) - they're all booked into motel rooms and have some safeguards in place for themselves. Hannah has a fear of heights, so she wanted to jump out of a plane for her birthday and she did earlier this morning.

This shot features Hannah and the mud cake, yum...Rebecca and her youngest Ella in the background at the family part of the celebrations.

In this shot, Hannah and her tandem instructor are ready to go, and I couldn't believe the size of the plane. I did wonder if it could really climb to 11 thousand feet. She has a dvd of the freefall and the whole experience (including the loud screaming and the excitement, a bit of swearing).
Hannah said it was very peaceful up there once she got into it and freefalling was fantastic.

This shot we got on zoom as they were turning to land. I'm so happy for her, glad that she challenged herself and found more fun than she ever expected.
