Road trip!

We took a road trip (in a bus, thanks to my in-laws) to Sikeston, Mo., yesterday with some of our friends. We ate at Lambert's -- home of the throwed rolls. For not too much money, you get a ton of food, including delicious rolls that are delivered via air. Yep, thrown across the restaurant.

While we were waiting for our table, the kids climbed on wooden trains like you see in the picture and Greg + his friend Mark shot basketballs into a bucket of water to win large souvenir mugs. I guess it's appropriate Greg was wearing a Kentucky basketball shirt ...

So after we stuffed ourselves, we shopped at the outlet mall. Well, really, it's like an outlet strip. Just one strip of stores, but it does include a Carter's children's clothing store, which sells those adorable outfits for 50, 60, sometimes 70 percent off. Then to make up for the women's time at the outlet, we took the guys to Boomland. It is like an over-sized convenience store that has many aisles of fireworks. (Complete with several "No Smoking" signs for customers who just don't get it ...) In addition to fuel and fireworks, you can buy random gifts, souvenirs, books, candy, hot sauce and ice cream.

  1. Did you go to the scrapbook store in that outlet mall? Or is it out of business. It was one of the best I've ever been to!
