It was a family affair over the weekend in Utah, where four generations of women from one family went skydiving together to celebrate one of their birthdays.

It was 91-year-old Marie Kimmey's idea to take to the skies honor of her birthday and she was joined by her daughter, granddaughter, great-granddaughters , as well as a few more grandchildren and great-grandchildren. The women may have even set a world record in the process, so they've submitted video of the jumps to Guinness for review.



"It kind of feels cool because we did this as a group and it's something that we will remember forever and we can tell our kids and grandkids that look, we did this and so you can do something too," Kimmey's granddaughter Roma Christiansen told ABC 4 Utah.

Kimmey says she got the idea to go skydiving after seeing 90-year-old President George H.W. Bush do it for his birthday earlier this year.
