Catching up: MO trip

I have so many fun, un-blogged about things, it's time for a little catch up. I hope you all enjoy the news and pictures!
Just before Easter we rented a house in MO for a week. It was SO MUCH FUN just to be together! Here is the Legacy, our very pretty and comfortable get-away house.



Oops! Wrong picture! This is actually an abandoned homestead on the property. (The Legacy is on a 400 some acre working cattle ranch.) It's located on what used to be a mail road.


Okay, there we go. Better, no?


We seem to have a bit of a castle theme going on this spring. Come on in, and I'll show you around a bit.


Now this is an entrance! Don't you just love that door? Notice that marvelous latch and the Bible in stained glass. We found out pretty quickly that the house is owned by a Christian family (homeschoolers, in fact!).


This is the Phillips room. As you can see, we're into roughing it.


Suite!


Even suite-er!


One of the most important of our activities together - eating!


Cooking in the fully equipped kitchen. Sure was nice to have all those pots and pans!


More eating! Chicken Quedillas (sp?) are one of my favorites to make and to eat.


Avuncular eating. Sorry, no hints. You'll have to look it up.
Alaina was so well entertained, with all the players and carry-ers. She was only alone for naps!


TO BE CONTINUED . . .

I love that last picture of Alaina. She's such a little chub and so intent on those hanging toys!

Looks like you had to rough it. Just kidding. Love the entrance and that bathroom.
I really like the walls in the bedroom- beautiful place.

Wow!! Looks great!

I sent you a package a couple of months ago-ish. (I make up words as needed.) I just want to confirm that you got it?

Love your posts!
