Summer 2015 Road Trip Part 2 – Visit to Missouri

When I left off on my last post, we had finished camping and were headed to see Matt’s mom.  We always have a great time hanging out and laughing with Ninna (what Milo calls her).  Mostly we hung around the house…

I spy a tantrum... and it's not Matt this time.

But we did head out a few times to visit family and have some fun.

Matt and I went antiquing one day…

I so wanted to buy this...

I sent this pic to Cady because she loves going thrifting/antiquing and I asked if she wanted me to pick this creepy little guy up for her…

she said "no" btw...

Friday night we headed out to have dinner with some family (at Boomland – a fireworks superstore that has a cafe inside) and then a mini class reunion for Matt (30 years…he’s old).

Dinner with Fam!  Look at all that healthy food! :)

After dinner with the fam (and purchasing a sh*t load of fireworks), we scooted over to the local bowling alley to meet up with Matt’s high school buds.  We found out AFTER we arrived that it was no longer a bowling alley and only a bar.  #ParentingFail

Milo also got to spend some quality time playing pool with uncle Ted…

When we had our fill of Budweiser and second hand smoke, we headed back home.  It was fun to meet a bunch of Matt’s old friends and listen to stories.  I think they had a great time with karaoke and dancing as well.


Saturday was Fourth of July and it was a blast of course (pun intended… those Welter boys seriously know how to put on a fireworks show).

Living in Dallas, we rarely get to see family.  It’s nice for us to be able catch up with everyone and Milo gets LOTS of cousin time.

Chasing goats…

Chasing fireworks… (The uncles always get a bunch of pre-fireworks that the kids get to participate in.  Generally parachute things that blow up and float down.)

Riding on…I don’t know what this is called… a country golf cart? ha!

Of course we had a fantastic time and were sad to leave, but we were also feeling pretty tired by the end of our week long adventure.

We hit 7 states over the span of a week…

Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Missouri, Kentucky, Illinois, Arkansas and back home to Texas!

It was a great trip – can’t wait to do it again next summer!
