Yep we have a drone (not a big fanny one) but it will take video's and pictures. 
The boys are loving it!!!

I tried to attach a video but it wouldn't work for me so you have to settle for a picture.

Time to get myself motivated and get something accomplished before I head to work.

Have a great day everyone!
