Trip to Missouri on Spring Break

Although Ron grew up in South Alabama, he doesn't have much family there anymore as his mom and brothers moved to the Branson/Springfield area of Missouri about eight years ago. They are about five hours away from us here in good ol' Mississippi.
We spent three days there since I was off work for spring break! I enjoy traveling there. Even though it's only five hours from here, we travel through four states, and it's kinda of a pretty drive. I bought Ava a mini d.v.d player a while back, but of course, I couldn't find the charger for it! She did great on the trip though. Yay for little naps when she was starting to get restless.  While Ava napped, Ron and I enjoyed listening to some c.d.s that we borrowed from friends; the speaker is Voddie Baucham. Last year when I told Maria, a church friend and homeschooling parent, that I felt led in that direction, she told me about this guy. WOW. He's a fabulous speaker and well-studied biblically, especially regarding God's plan for the family.  I can't say enough good things about the six c.d.s I've heard so far!! I guess I'm off topic... :)
Don't you love trying new restaurants when you are away from home? We do. We love the frozen custard shops in their area. Ugh, I probably gained weight during this break:( We also went to Landry's in Branson- so wonderful!
Ron's mom (Mamaw to Ava) was thrilled that we came for a visit. We got to see Danny and Kayla's new house... And Jim's home renovation and horses and cow... and just hang out and relax a little. Good times.

excited about cookie dough frozen custard:)
We all went to dinner at Cheddar's. 
It looks like all we did was eat.... Not really! Ha!!

  1. LOVE that big smile in the first picture. I think I must look the same way when sweets are involved! ;o)

    Don’t you LOVE Cheddars! Love there spinach and artichoke dip, and their pasta cesar salad. Even though it's a salad I'm certain it must have more calories that a hamburger.
