I sure did enjoy spending time with my three girls. We went to a fun old time area of Osage Beach which had gift shops and an arcade and such. We got the girls each a stuffed kitty and here they are with those and the Navajo Indian dolls we got them at the Hopi House at the Grand Canyon. They're so cute!
Each evening as we returned from going out for dinner there was a small herd of deer in the same grassy wooded area, there were two fawns in the group. Aren't they cute?
There were several does and we saw one buck with a small rack of antlers.
What a joy to get to see them often.
One day we took the girls to Randy's Custard and all enjoyed some ice cream. It was EXTREMELY HOT AND HUMID there. Like a steam oven.
For one of our dinners we tried this place with the funny name and even funnier quote on their sign. It had high ratings.
I got smoked ham and turkey and it was delicious!
In the arcade area was this fun painted VW Bus which I loved.
Did I mention it was HOT? :-) It got up to 98 d. F while there. Oh my.
I liked this old clock.
A pretty sunset sky on one of the evenings while there.
Here is a vintage basket that I got for a nice low price at the antique store.
It's an oak splint basket and I could tell it is old from examining the bottom.
I spent some wonderful time in the pool with the girls, they LOVE to swim and we all had a great time on our last full day together.
Grandpa took some photos for me from the balcony.
Our last supper - a cute little girl crawled up and joined us and we had fun with her.
Our only group photo - at Starbucks as we parted way. Hugs all around.
As we headed North out of Missouri we passed miles and miles of corn fields. We passed through a corner of Iowa and into Nebraska. Corn fields the whole way!
We passed over this neat bridge - can anyone tell me where it is and what it's name is? LOL!
We stopped at this neat Amish store in Nebraska and I had to take a photo of the fun way they painted their water tower.
We love the Amish stores! So many fun things in there! We got a pecan roll and shared it as we drove.
Have you ever wondered where the "boonies" are? This is where.
We made it to Grand Island, Nebraska and got a hotel, went out for a very late soup and salad dinner. When we returned to the hotel this pretty moon was posing for a photo. Goodnight, Moon. :-)
We are now up and ready to hit the road again. We have a whole state to cross into Wyoming where we'll head to Jackson Hole and to see the Grand Tetons. :-) Then? Oregon or Bust!! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
