A Trip to the North Pole

On Saturday, we were all lucky to help Jon fly a trip to the North Pole.  There as an event through his work for kids that are in need to come to the airport and fly to the North Pole.  Well, not really fly to the North Pole....but we can all pretend pretty good.

At this event there were carnival games, the local sports teams mascots, a magician, music, food, and we all loaded onto an airplane an pretended to fly to the North Pole.  Jon was lucky to be the co pilot for the trip.  The plane taxied around the airport and went really fast down the runway and then they hit the brakes.  However, when we were taxing, we all closed our window shades so no one could see where we were at.  When we got back to our gate, we were instructed to open our window shades and look for Santa Claus.  There he was running around the airplane outside.  He then made his way on the plane.  It was the coolest event EVER!  We all enjoyed helping out at this event. 

The Girls in First Class!
A, E, K worked the fishing pole booth and loaded up the cups with candy for all the kids.  They did a great job and we were so proud of them for helping out.  We also got to see where Jon's new office is and we met some of his new co-workers.  It was great and he really works with a lot of great people. 

We hope to be involved again next year for this very cool event.  Merry Christmas!
