Short Weekend Get Away

and I decided to take the girlz to Missouri this weekend for a little much-needed family getaway.



We spent yesterday at Silver Dollar City and had such a fun time riding the rides, checking out the fall decorations, and eating their yummy food! The weather was perfect and there was no wait for most of the rides. "A" talked me into riding the "Giant Swing" - SCARY!!! We didn't realize we liked it so much until the second time we rode it ;-) "M" loved the train ride and thought getting stopped by robbers was pretty fun.


They enjoyed this a little too much...

Then, today, we surprised the girlz with a trip to the Laura Ingalls Wilder Historic Home and Museum in Mansfield, Missouri. They were so excited because they've been wanting to go there for a long time now. We got to see the actual house and all of it's contents where Laura, Amanzo, and Rose lived when they first moved to Missouri. Unfortunately, they didn't allow photography in the museum or the house but it was so neat to see actual artifacts that belonged to the Wilder's & Ingall's families. Here's a few pics of the grounds...




It was such a fun weekend and I loved spending time together with the fam!
