The big 3-0

It happened.  I got old.

Last month.

I had the birthday where both digits change :)  In anticipation for the big event, Ben asked if there was anything special I wanted for my thirtieth birthday.  Without hesitation, I said, “I want to fly in a small plane and get an up close and personal aerial tour of Zion National Park.”

“Done.” he said promptly.

It kind of helps that we know a really great pilot who lives by Zion.  (My fantastic Father-in-law)

What a great Pilot!

I can’t even describe how amazing the experience was for me!  Ben and I spent our honeymoon hiking in Zion and I remember being completely awestruck by the incredible red rock formations.

Flying through was no exception.  It was one of those life experiences that I just kept repeating over and over, “Wow. Oh wow! WOW!”  I just couldn’t help but be humbled and grateful to  God for His majestic beauty on the Earth.

Southern Utah is amazing.

Zion is amazing.

And even though he didn’t get to go up, Buzzy thought the planes were pretty cool.

The awesome view from the “old” St. George airport :)

What a fantastic birthday!  It was certainly worth waiting 30 years for!

We turned the flight(s) into a fun family flying event over Christmas.  The exciting slideshow can be found HERE.

Brooke Snow is a Lifestyle photographer in Cache Valley, Utah. She is now putting forth more effort into actually documenting the life of her own family!  Hooray!  And in the process has discovering some interesting things… like the beauty of shooting jpgs instead of RAW… oh my.  Who knew? With a little more experimentation it just might switch her over to the jpg side for good.  We’ll see…

Brooke teaches private photography lessons , online photography classes, as well as monthly photography classes in Logan, Utah.
