Last weekend was a three day weekend for the kiddos, and we had a little road trip in mind. James and I were planning on getting some clothes for his upcoming convention, and my mom was happy to watch the kiddos while we were out.
We loaded up the kiddos, left early, and headed to Joplin. We were planning on spending the day, and the weather was awesome.
Before we went to Nana’s house, we drove the kiddos by the church that we were married in. It is a lovely church. Aww, happy memories.
James and I headed out to go to lunch, and do some shopping. We had a few stores in mind, but I really wanted to go to Hobby Lobby. He went too, he didn’t mind, and I came home with lots of yarn.
After lunch and clothes shopping, we picked up the kiddos and took them to the mall. Nana went too, and when we got there the boys headed to the arcade, and we girls headed to the fabric store.
We had an awesome time. Agnes loves to look at fabric and yarn. Our little trip reminded me of when my Na-na used to take me fabric shopping when I was little.
We took Agnes to get a cookie. The boys wern’t ready to leave the arcade just yet.
After a bit at the mall, the kids were ready to go back to Nana’s house, and James and I were ready to head to Downstream Casino.
The sun was setting, and the weather was starting to get a bit chilly.
I think it has been cold every time that I have visited Downstream.
I was more than happy to be out on a date with my super-cute hubby.
We visited the casino for a bit, and then headed to dinner.
And oh my goodness, it was crazy good. We had Prime Rib, Fried Catfish, and so many yummy sides too.
There were lots of yummy desserts too.
The day away was so much fun, and the kiddos had a blast too. One of the things that I love about living in the four states is waking up in KS, lunch in MO, and dinner in OK. Three states, and one super fun road trip.
