A Helicopter Landed near Kishbank


Is it a Grasshopper or a Helicopter?

This was taken in Saturday, when we took the kids to Home Depot to attend their Kids Project. Since, the kids were making airplane and while in the middle of busy pounding here and there, the lady that was in charge announces about a helicopter that would land very soon and blah,blah, blah! 

Our daughter got so excited as she never seen a helicopter up close before. Well, majority of the kids went outside to see the helicopter. I accompanied my daughter outside and yes, it was big and she liked when she saw it. It was really cool especially for the little kids.

Question: Do you have any bad or good experiences about Helicopter? Or, have you been in the helicopter before? Yours truly, never been but would love to experience it someday.

I have never been in a helicopter and truthfully I do not want to! I am slightly afraid of heights, preferring my feet to be on firm ground at all times--or at least to be surrounded by something that has doors!!

Wow, how exciting for your kids to see a helicopter up close like that!! My boys would have loved that.

I hate hearing a helicopter... Hate it. On the night my Mother died, she was life flighted in a helicopter. It took off, and because of bad weather had to land again. I will never forget the sounds of the thumping of the blades as it was landing.

One of the churches in our area does a Helicopter egg drop for Easter. It's pretty cool and all the kids love it!

I have never ridden on a helicopter. I would think it would be very scary, you would be able to feel every bump.

So, I work right beside a helipad, and actually the building in your pic looks really similar to my work building so that surprised me for a second haha. One time a rock flew up and broke a window of a co-workers car but our work paid for the damage. Glad your daughter was interested in it. I think my son would be scared at this age but into it later on!

i don't think i've ever been in a helicopter. when we lived in phoenix we went to the local airport and the kids loved to watch the airplanes and helicopters while we had lunch

I have never been in one, but since I worked in the ER for a long time, I saw lots of them very close :)
How exciting this must have been for your little one :)

One time we went to a Home Depot workshop too and a helicopter landed too!

That is so cool! we have been inside a helicopter, but it was one that had been altered as part of a kids exploring museum, not one that still functioned as a helicopter.

I have never been in one myself. My husband and son have both ridden in a few and warned me that I would not like such a ride. I am sure its fun for some brave persons. Its nice that your daughter got to see one up close. I am sure she will cherish that memory.

I've never ridden in one before, but I would probably do so! When I see people in them on tv shows, they look happy!

I've never been on the inside of one but have come pretty close to military helicopters. Not sure if I would want to ride in one unless being transported to some MTF. :)

How exciting! I've never been on an helicopter before, but I've seen one up close. I'm afraid of heights though, so maybe i'd ride one when i get over that fear.

I have never been in or near a helicopter.

HilLesha said...

That is pretty cool. My son would love something like this, because he is airplane and helicopter crazy. :)

Kids love helicopter, they are amuse with that transportation and glad that your kids has a closer look on the thing when they have the chance.

I've never been in a helicopter myself - although I think it would be pretty cool!

I would love to go on a helicopter ride one of these days. When we were in South Dakota last summer, they had a helicopter tour at the crazy horse and I thought to myself, it would be nice to ride in one of those. :) My kids might love it too.

What a cool experience to see a helicopter up close and personal. I would love to take a ride in one some day but I too am a bit nervous. Although, if it was around the Hawaiian Islands or something I may be able to get over that fear, quick! :-)

I've seen helicopter but never tried flying in it yet. It must be scary to ride.

Tough Cookie Mommy said...

Honestly, I've never been around any helicopters in my whole life. I've always wondered if it is fun to ride in one but I think I would probably be afraid since it's such close quarters inside. I know my boys love helicopters or any other mode of transportation.

I've never been on a helicopter, scares me a bit though.

Melanie B said...

Kids love helicopters! you don't often get to see them so close. I have oddly enough at my birthing rooms have always been given a window that can see the helicopters coming in and going out. It passed the time watching them land and take off.

Mharms said...

I haven't flown on a helicopter before. It would be cool if I can someday. :)

I have never been in a helicopter, but was on a helicopter simulator ride at seaworld last weekend that didn't turn out so great as my hubby got sick on it.
