My Trip to Kansas in Pictures

Last Friday John and Noah and I went to Kansas. John went to a conference in Wichita and Noah and I travelled on to Baxter Springs to see my Aunt Carol Jo and my Uncle Henry. On the way, we stopped at something I'd heard about. The largest Prairie Dog in the World! Turned out to be a bit of a zoo, sort of.

In Baxter Springs, we visited with my aunt and uncle and my cousin and his family.

Noah, Henry and Carol Jo at the Rainbow Bridge, the
only remaining Marsh Bridge on Route 66

In Baxter Springs, we visited the #2 national cemetary and looked
at some Civil War soldier's graves.

Uncle Henry went around the cemetary teaching
Noah some history.

One night we had dinner over at my cousin's house.
Wonderful food and laughter!

What a sweet time! :0)

I love that pose with prairie dogs, doing your prairie dog imitations.

It remimnded me of one of the early scenes in "Ground Hog Dog" when Andie MacDowell did her ground hog imitation.

Hey Robbie, you were over in my neck of the woods! Saw on Facebook that you were headed this way but had an incredibly busy weekend so didn't try to "connect" this time. I bet we meet someday, somewhere, though, and won't that be fun?! :)

Fun to see the pictures!

Susan, I love that movie! :0) I've always had an affection for Prairie Dogs, so this was a hoot.

Where do you live in Oklahoma? Do you know how far it is from Baxter Springs, Kansas?

Thank you Kay Day!
