Back in the 816

We are back on the road after a great weekend in Kansas City with friend and family. It was really great to see every one. We love getting to spend all our time together, but we both miss or peoples back home.
We were having so much fun getting Arthur Bryant’s and El Maguey, crashing super bowl party’s, and feeling like  loca’s again at Harry’s, that we didn’t take a single picture. Lame, I know.
I hope we can make it back soon, we miss everyone. A special thanks to Josh and Amy for putting us up and to my grandma for letting us use the car.
Next time we will remember pictures, promise.

And then awesome happened

So as you know we’ve been waiting for the last few days (since 11am Thursday morning to be exact) to get a load to Mountain Grove, MO to see Jacob’s family.
Today they sent us up to Edwardsville, KS (a suburb of Kansas City, KS) to get our batteries replaced, but when asked about getting a load home-ward we were told “be patient, don’t push it”. (Jacob just smiled and graciously responded…we’re lucky he was the one that was told this because I may not have been quite as…mature with my response).
Anywho, we got them to let us bobtail (drive the tractor without pulling a trailer) to the “store” and promptly headed for Raytown, MO to get some wonderful coffee from my favorite coffee shop, Benetti’s.
Ben, Michael, and Kiersten were working and greeted us with the warm welcome we had so desperately been missing. My good friend Chloie stopped by to see us and then later the wonderful, and adorably pregnant, Amy stopped in to see us as well. It was the social interaction I had been needing for weeks.
On top of all of that, as we were pulling into the coffee shop, and Jacob was narrowly missing the sign, we got a pre-plan for a load headed to Florida that doesn’t have to be delivered until Friday…which means, since Mountain Grove is on the way, we get to hang out there for a few days and leave in time to get the load delivered on time. Yay!
So now we’ve picked up the load and we’re headed to Mountain Grove to spend some time with his wonderful family. Finally!

Great Weekend

The visit of one of our best friends, T-Rave, made this weekend awesome!

We had everything you need for a  great weekend; Food, family and fun. The camping was thwarted by iffy weather, but that didn’t slow us down.

Luke, the master of the grill, made some pretty fire Fajitas.

We made the trek up to Dove Mountain. Perfect day for it.

Hand delivered Benetti’s coffee made breakfast on Sunday amazing.

Breakfast on the patio.

Sunday morning we visited the Fellowship Bible Church with our friends Tyler and Becky. It was a great worship service and we are looking forward to visiting again.

Then it was time to hit up the STD Flea Market with Travis. Rachel came away with a bunch of jars and Travis got an amazing “Darth Tater” Mr potato head.

With Travis heading back to KC we decided to take the scenic route home through Ozark. It was a beautiful day, perfect with the windows down and the sun shining.  A great start to the week.
