Week Re-Cap

National World War I Museum Tower

This week has been so amazing. I'm not even exaggerating - it feels like an old school roadtrip we used to take when I was little. My dad and I decided {kind of at the last minute} to drive to Omaha, Nebraska for the College World Series. We drove about 1,600 miles to get here and we had a blast along the way. This is only the first half of photos, there will be a lot more next week when I have more time to write blog posts. But I wanted to go ahead and share what we've done. We drove to Tallahassee and then from there went through Alabama to Jonesboro, Arkansas. Outside of Birmingham we grabbed a bite at Full Moon BBQ, we had eaten there back when we drove through Birmingham before. Then we continued on to Mississippi and let me just say this rest area is the best. It is absolutely beautiful, the restrooms are always clean and if you take a picnic you won't be sorry. We then entered Tennessee and decided to visit Bass Pro Shops at The Pyramid. This is something my dad and I had been wanting to visit for a long time. Because a) we love a good tourist attraction and b) we love a good building repurpose. The Pyramid used to be home to a basketball team. The inside of The Pyramid is nuts, there are alligators, boats in water, a shooting gallery, a hotel, etc. There is also an observation deck at the top {if you are afraid of heights, be warned the deck has glass floors}. You get a great view of downtown Memphis and the Mississippi River. We stopped in Cook-Out for dinner {the best southern burger joint?} and then proceeded onto Arkansas. We drove through lots of farm land and then arrives in Jonesboro - Arkansas State's home. I love their logo and they have great branding along the campus streets. 

The next morning we got up and drove through Arkansas and Missouri. We stopped for lunch in Kansas City and then visited the National World War I Museum. It has been recently re-done and it's fabulous. The tower and its two buildings are Art Deco at its finest and the whole thing sits on a hill to look over the city. I would recommend this stop in KC to anyone, seriously, go! After our stop we finished the driving with dinner and craft beer at Blue Blood Brewing Company in Lincoln. If you're visiting Lincoln, go and get the Pastrami Board because, ohmlord, it was wonderful. Honestly we might go back. Have any of y'all been to these places? Let me know, also there are a ton more photos of the stuff described above, below this post - xoxo darling, Hayden.
