Our visit to Missouri

We just got home from a trip to the Midwest to visit my parents. The weather was absolutely beautiful the first two days. Those of you living in Arizona know that means it was anything below 90 degrees. Plus, those first two days, there was no humidity!
We lit fireworks on three different nights, ate frozen custard at the local place, had chocolate, rootbeer, orange and strawberry milk all from a local dairy. The bottles are these heavy, glass bottles like you would think of the old time milk coming in and the milk is delicious! We also went to Worlds of Fun and hit all the kiddie rides and a ball park inside (imagine a park with thousands of foam balls and all kinds of contraptions to shoot, rocket, launch or vacuum them everywhere). We also went fishing at one of the local lakes and Ryanna and Papa caught at least 13 different fish in about 2 hours (all Blue Gill).
Mostly, we were all incredibly spoiled each in our own ways. Ryanna and Owen having every activity based around their interests and me being allowed to get naps and sleep in in the mornings.
It was such a fun time and we look forward to going back.
On a sidenote, all of the songs you will hear are Ryanna's current favorites. Enjoy them while you view the photos.

Looks like you guys had a lot of fun! Always great to be spoiled by grandparents- love it.

Next time you're in MO, let me know. You're only 6 hours away, we could try and meet up halfway or something. :)

I'm excited to catch up with you, let's talk next week.

Don't you love grandparents! We stopped in Missouri for a couple days during our drive over and really enjoyed it- granted it was Haniball so we enjoyed all the Mark Twain stuff and it was the 4th of July so we got a great fireworks show to top it all off.

Frankly, I am a bit shocked at the music you expose your 5 year old to. Is nothing sacred anymore?
