Our Wonderfull Road Trip to Missouri Day One

Day One: Saturday March 14, 2009

Today we loaded Grumpy,Sleepy,and Whiny into the car and proceeded to torture them for exactly 287 miles. Muah ha ha ha ha.

We did stop once some of course. Here we are on a sidewalk outside of a gas station/casino in Oklahoma having a strawberry picnic.

Silas did some serious giggling on the hood

Then back into the torture device car seat he went. Please note the foot above his head. Cecily took it seriously when I told them to stretch their legs because we weren't stopping for at least half and inch.

Arriving in Joplin by eight o'clock we checked into our tiny KOA cabin and went to eat at Fazzolis while we waited for it to warm up. Brrrr.

During dinner we thought about how it was going to be cold sleeping on those plastic mattresses with just a sheet in between so we headed to Wal-mart to pick up another blanket so we could use the others that we brought as mattress covers.
Lesson Learned: It's not really cheaper to stay in a $40.00 KOA Kabin if you have to buy a $27.00 blanket for warmth. You could just stay in a hotel but you might miss out on the wildlife.
