Interesting Stop

We stopped at a small air museum west of Alburquque. The buildings were restored markers used for the first Trans Atlantic Air Transport in the late 1920s. The pilot flew at 1000 feet and navigated by the large arrows and bright beacons on the ground.
In addition to the information about the navigational system, there was an exhibit of Charles Lindbergh's areal photography alongside photos taken recently of the same sites. An interesting stop on the road and a great chance to stretch our legs.

Heading Home

It is once again time to say goodbye. We headed west and managed to hit the free Seven - Eleven promotion at least once in Alburquque. In Amarillo, we ordered from our favorite Mexican restaurant and Noah had his left over for lunch on the road.



As we approached Flagstaff, we began to see rain clouds!

Silver Polish

Noah discovered the joy of polishing silver while visiting Grammy.

We Always Eat Well in Missouri

There is never a shortage of excellent food when we visit Missouri. Noah and Lukas experienced Stucky's one evening, and after a delicious meal at the Red Onion, we stopped for ice cream shakes. It was late at night, and the temperature was finally cooling off.

Sorting

It is hard to cull out books and mementos. Bob and the boys pulled out the ladder to reach the books on the top shelf, and Lisa took the floor to go through papers in the boxes. Great team effort made the work go fast and smoothly. 



Drone Flying

Lukas had a chance to fly his drone and captured Grammy's house from the air. 

Severinghaus Family Picture

We found several family pictures as we dug through the boxes.
