Amelia Earhart Day

Maxwell: What's this? No Boycats Allowed?

Allie: In honor of Amelia Earhart Day, we girls are taking over the blog, Maxie.

Seat backs forward and tray tables in their upright and locked positions, please!

Sunset at 3,000 feet. Yeah, a girl is flying the plane! #womenfly #femaleavators

Female pilots are rare - only 3% of all pilots are women.
For those of you who haven't seen the mom's new 'do -- hey, look! She's curly and didn't know, 'til it got cut!

And Finally ... From 2015, But Still Way Cool:

We love this photo our mom captured while flying on the 4th of July a few years back.

Turns out, in a 1-in-a-million shot, she captured the "largest firework ever in the U.S."...
just as it began to detonate!

She's never before - ever - seen a firework illuminate the landscape like this one did! And two years later, she still hasn't. No flying this year due to rain. :-(



  1. we love you girl flyers!! (and mom loves your mom's curls)

  2. OMG, the look on Allie's face is too precious! Flying makes me nervous, but on my 40th birthday, a co-worker took me for a spin in his Cessna. You only live once, right?!? Yeah, well...I prefer to have my two big feets on the ground, what can I say?

  3. Wowsers!
    Your Mom has awesome curls and she can fly!?
    We love the look on Allie's face in her airplane ♥

  4. I am so impressed that your mom is a pilot. Maybe she can buzz to the bayou someday!

  14. OMC!!! Wowee! Spectacular that your Mom got that fireworks picture and how pawsome that she can fly a plane! There is a flight school in our town...but no way has petcretary thought about enrolling, MOL!

  15. Nice plane you kitties have. Fly on to your mom. My mom signed up for lessons ages ago, but never did learn to fly.

  16. That fireworks picture is amazing! I used to dream of learning to fly, but I've never gotten around to it, and these days I'm pretty happy to keep my feet on the ground.
