DAY ONE: We headed out the end of June on a cross country trip, driving our 15-year-old Honda minivan. It was pouring down rain as we drove from Virginia to Pennsylvania, but amazingly enough, it stopped when we got out to see the Flight 93 Memorial.The visitor's center isn't complete, so we walked around outside and read the sign boards with information.
DAY TWO: We'd spent the night in Columbus, Ohio. Our first stop on day two was at the Aviation Heritage park in Dayton, Ohio.
Our next stop was in Indianapolis, Indiana, where we stopped to look at the brand new temple that was going to have it's open house during the month of July.
We drove through Indiana to Springfield, Illinois, and arrived in the afternoon.
We went to the Lincoln Home visitor's center, but it was too late to take a tour of Lincoln's home. Instead we looked at the outside of his home and the surrounding neighborhood.
It's quite an impressive landmark.
We had a bit more time to spend in St. Louis, so we toured the Scott Joplin House. I've played music by Scott Joplin since I was a teenager, so I liked seeing his home.
