The weather was looking like it was going to be quite rainy, therefore cloudy, this week, so I took the opportunity of decent weather to take a number of friends flying.

David and I had talked about flying for some time, so yesterday, when I noticed there was going to be some good weather today, I decided to plan an early morning flight. Conveniently enough, his birthday was Wednesday a couple days ago and Ann, our third, had her birthday on Monday.
