About Us...
This is our travel blog... our electronic travel journal you could call it... documenting our journeys to new & different places. I called our blog, 'Tree Top Flyin'... a Jimmy Buffett reference that reminds me of traveling, & the adventures to be had with our newly acclaimed 'IFR' Pilot & his plane. We're a non-traditional family - living in non-traditional ways... and I love it that way. For the four of us life is quick & distinct... it's unique and adventuresome - but it's also very normal. We have angst, & we have laughter. We have pain and we have greatness. We're happy, and we're whole...this family, that is mine.

Baby Leah is Born
We've been waiting for this little girl to arrive for what seems like forever.
She scared us all upon her arrival, but when she finally sucked in those first few breaths on her own we all stopped holding ours, and were thrilled as she said hello to the world. 
She's my new angel, and my little sister is a MOM.

Bloomington, Indiana
We flew to Bloomington for business, but also got to see a bunch of family too. Jim was born in Bloomington, and The Cramer's are still very much a part of the Hoosier community. I wish I had taken pics of everyone, but turns out I really just captured the journey there.

This is always a flattering photo. 
I did the radios from take-off to landing on my own. If Jim passes out during a flight I will not be able to land the plane (although I will try), but I'll definitely be able to communicate. 
It's way intimidating, and I usually chicken-out when it get's hard - but I muscled through this long flight. Way scarey.
 From the Mountains... 

 To The Mississippi.

My Big Sister, Melissa came home in between semesters of Med School.
Kate took us to Hawaiian Ice, and I learned I can no longer live without this amazing treat- nor could I live without my sisters.

VIP Baby!
Ty and I both read The Hunger Games series, and when the first Movie came out we were first in line. 
The movie would have scared the pee-wodden out of Bo, so Ty and I went on a date the two of us.
Turns out, we found a VIP Theater... recliners, and full-service staff. When they brought Ty chicken fingers and pop-corn to his cozy seat he almost lost his mind.
He still talks about it all the time.

 The Back Yard
Jim and I took a 4-wheeler out the back of our property and into the forest. He hangs tree-cameras way up in the mountains to capture wild-life, and to prove to himself there ARE elk to be hunted back there. We stumbled on 5 elk grazing at the top - thumbs up for hunting season.

Swapping out the cameras.

Fallen trees had blocked the trail all the way up - so we went back for the chain-saw and cleared out timber all the way to the top.
