Ho Ho in MO

We took a little road trip down to Springfield, MO to visit Derek's sister, Jessica, and her family, as well as his mom, brother and sister, who also traveled down.

This was one hour into a 9 1/2 hour drive...she hates being confined, she has since being inside me...

She cried for the next hour, determined and stubborn:)

Derek went to school in MO for a couple years and the Nature Reserve was one of my most favorite places to go with him when I visited.  It was so special to take our kids on such a beautiful day and share this wonderful place!


Our first time eating at Chick-fil-A, yum:)

Yes, this is me being pushed up by my butt onto a hay bale, ha!

How could we go to Missouri and not go to Bass Pro Shop?!  Plus, Ho Ho was there (what Hakan calls Santa).


Oh man, trying to get four grand kids to smile or even look at the camera in a picture with Grandma is next to impossible.


Pictures with Santa always make me laugh, my kids were no exception.  Adeline freaked, classic, and Hakan had a weird, deer in headlights, look on his face.  This had to have been one of the sweetest Santas ever, he said we could try one with just Hakan...he made the same face, and then he said we could try a family one...still the same face.  Oh well, we got them all for free!  Good memories:)

This is Adeline emptying yet another bag, she's really good at it.

One of our other favorite places in Springfield, Andy's Frozen Custard :)

Another stop at Chick-fil-A on the way home, solely for the little play area.

 We had a good time with family and can't wait for all the visits coming in the next month!
