Birthday at 3700 feet

We flew to the Hampton's on June 19 which is Simone's birthday.  The flight attendant, Maria, had an idea. Over the intercom, she had the passengers light the candles by pressing the attendant call buttons.  Then they sang Happy Birthday and then Simone made a wish and blew out the candles at which point the passengers pressed the call buttons again to snuff the candles out.  

By the way, Simone had already enjoyed a giant 120 guest "Big Dig" Treasure hunt at the beach (epic as always) and celebrated her birthday at school and then again with her god-parents and so she didn't mind flying on this very special day.
