On a whim......

We have decided to pack up and head to Missouri tomorrow to visit Shane's family down there!

We never do things like this, even though we talk about doing it all the time. We have only been trying to get back to Missouri for 4 years now! But, we are really, really excited about going. Gram lives in a place where there are tons of things to do.....Silver Dollar City (for the boys) and Outlet Malls (for Shane of course....well, okay--me) plus lots of restaurants and other things. Not to mention Branson isn't far away either!

We are all really geared up for the trip, and Colin can't wait to get to "Desserty" as he calls it. My friend Laura is letting us borrow her "in the car DVD player" which, according to her, makes trips like this unbelievably easier. Even though I am against those things in principle, (I don't want to hear "can we watch something?? 95 times on a 10 minute car ride) I am caving for this trip....what little boy wants to sit and do nothing for 6 hours? I figure this will be really fun for them to have, and will help Shane and I keep our sanity.....

So, I will be away from the blogging world for a few days, but there will be lots of pics (and I am sure, knowing my wonderful children, lots of stories) when we return!!

We are, and are having such a great time. We went to Silver Dollar city today--a blast, even though we got caught in some rain!
Wish you guys were here too, we are going to have to make more of an effort to do something like this together, it would be so great!
