Default Lunch with Mom

Sunny and 50 in both Minne and South Bend on a weekend in December? That calls for a Lunch trip to see Mom, as it will soon be snowy and cold in the upper midwest.

Ryan and I loaded up for a 7:30 departure with the promise of nice tailwinds up at 7500. It was smooth ride over the Badger State as the sun rose in the southeast.

Ryan seems to take after his Mother.......

We turned the corner at Joliet and headed for South Bend, and got a nice look at the Windy City.

We had time in South Bend to have a nice lunch, help Mom with a few tasks and play with her cute little dog, Smoky. The trip home was a bit longer, but we avoided a big headwind by staying low. We got a great shot of the setting sun over the Mississippi at Lacrosse.

Great trip to see mom on a nice day in December! Back in time to go to Badgers vs Gophers hockey on campus. Lunch with YiaYia and a Badger hockey win helped offset the Badger football loss for the boy........

Default Nice Trip

Hi Pete -

Beautiful weekend to fly here in Northern Indiana. Sorry I missed you out at 3TR. Hope to catch you next time!

P.S. Only the last photo shows up for some reason. Maybe others are having the same issue?
