On the way home, we stopped off at the Cabelas in Kansas City. We spent 3 hours looking at the incredible mounts, shooting in the shooting gallery, feeding ducks, eating things like venison brats, and taking pictures of the wonderful Mule deer display (for our neighbor, Chris:) It was a fun way to end our Missouri vacation.

The Rolling Pin


Mike's brother, Jeremy, has become quite famous in the Glasgow, MO area for his wonderful bakery. He's had several articles published about him in the newspaper. We're very proud of you Jeremy - and thanks for lunch!

A Day At the Farm


Actually, we spent 2 very fun playtimes over at David Shane and Lydia Doctorian's house. Their 2 children quickly became buddies with our 2! The kids rode ponies, jumped in the "Jumporama", picked up hickory nuts, played dress-up, and all kinds of exciting things!

Going Bonkers!


After having a Sayler family supper in Columbia, MO at Mike's cousin Regina's house, we all went to a great kiddie playland called "Bonkers". The kids had a blast. Or as Katie said, "Mama, this is the best day of my life!"

Here are Katie and Hunter with their "Sayler cousins". We've been on vacation in Missouri for the past 12 days and just returned last evening. Mike was deer hunting, and I'm sorry to say that I have no big buck picture to blog for you:( But we do have some more meat (of the doe variety) for the freezer. We got to spend alot of time with family, and the kids had so much fun.

Boy in Tree


Katie came running upstairs today yelling, "Mama, you just have to come see!" So, this is what I saw - my little monkey up in a tree. I watched and took pictures through the blinds as Hunter climbed down (with some supervision by his sister:)

Katie walked out the front door this afternoon and said, "Mama, there's a cow in our yard!" Actually, it was a rather large, but seemingly friendly bull. Cattle "free range" on the public land behind our house all summer and into Fall. This guy is apparently a straggler, but I think I found the rancher who was missing this particular bull. He enjoyed munching around in our yard for a couple of hours first though. (You just never know what's going to happen at our house:) We finally have snow on the mountain that has come to stay! And it is a might chilly around here - BRRR! And the final picture is showing my bargains for the day: 4 cans evaporated milk, 1 lb. cottage cheese, 1 box Quaker Oats, 2 juice concentrates, 7 boxes of cereal, 3 boxes of Betty Crocker potatoes, 1 box Hamburger Helper, 3 Powerades, 2 DanActive drinkable yogurts, 1 bottle of Shout, 5 lb. sugar, 1 pkg. Betty Crocker cookie mix, 2 boxes of Toaster Strudels, 2 packs of Duracell batteries, 2 boxes of Swiss Miss cocoa, and 1 lint roller - for just under $25! I saved $63! It's funny - I used to despise shopping, but now it's a challenge - so , it's "kind of" fun:)
