Lots of Traveling!

Lori & I are finally getting caught up on organizing our pictures that we have taken this year.  We have a pretty good system where she renames the pictures and I organize, upload and back them up.  I also like to do blog posts on some of our adventures.  This year we have been very busy and haven’t done really well at documenting our adventures.  The good news though is that we have been having fun and have been lots of places.  I’ve just completed uploading a few of our albums from trips we have taken this year.  Here is a summary of our travels with links to the albums.

January: Family took the Amtrak train to Chicago for the weekend

February: Family flew to Sandusky, OH to meet Jeff’s sister’s family at Kalahari

March: Family flew to Destin, FL for Spring Break

April: Family Flew to Allegan, MI for Easter with Lori’s Family

May: Jeff traveled to Puebla, Mexico for work.  No big family trips as the airplane was in and out of the shop for some avionics upgrades.  There were a few “local” flights around Illinois though.  Jeff’s parents also came out to spend the weekend with the family and they took a flight to Decatur for breakfast.

June: Jeff and a co-worker flew up to Chicago Midway to see the Cubs-Tigers game at Wrigley Field

June: Lori and the kids went up to Muskegon, MI to see her cousin Angie and her son.  They also visited with her Aunt Tina & Uncle Bill in Manistee.

July:  Jeff’s Friend Bobby James came to town and they spent one night in St. Louis.  They went on the Anheuser-Busch Brewery Tour, explored the city, saw a Cardinals game and went to the Lumiere casino.

July:  Jeff & Lori flew to Memphis, New Orleans & Nashville for their 10th Anniversary.  As promised I will be uploading numerous pictures and a detailed blog post about our awesome trip.

August: Family flew to Branson, MO for the last weekend before school started.  Pictures will be uploaded and a detailed blog post soon.

So, as you can see it has been a busy year already.  Even with the plane being in the shop for a good part of April & May I have still logged over 83 hours year to date.  I’m hopefully on track to meet my goal of 100 hours for the year but I’m going to be replacing the engine with an overhauled one at annual in October which may extend the annual a bit this year.  I’m really happy that we are getting our use out of the plane and getting to enjoy family trips!
