David & Carol's Visit - 1st Day

Dave and Carol arrived Sunday afternoon to enjoy our 70+ degree weather. They left their 9 degree weather in Wisconsin for paradise in Tucson. Enjoyed having the family come over to visit with them last evening and for a simple pulled pork, beans and cole slaw dinner. Unfortunately the photographers (Carol, Marsha and me) didn't get in this picture.
Monday afternoon we took a drive down to the Pima Air & Space Museum. We enjoyed taking the guided tram ride around to learn about all the airplanes on site.
Here are pictures of a few of the planes we saw.
After the tram ride, we went into the hanger exhibits.
 Seriously studying something.

Here is the Lockheed SR-71A Blackbird.
The specs
 It's hard to get a picture of the total length of that plane.
Dave wanted to have ice cream before we headed home, so had our desert before our meal. Spent over 3 1/2 hours at the museum, which was interesting, informative and even was enjoyable to the non-airplane interested person.

Just a quiet evening at home - dinner and a little bit of basketball. Stay tuned to see where we end up tomorrow.
