Howell Island with the Browns – 5/3/2015

We had a caravan with the Browns out to Howell Island for a hike. They had not been there before and we were ready to see it again. The Missouri River water level was low enough that we could walk across and get to the island, so it would be a prefect day.

We ended up hiking about 4 miles round trip. The kids were not going to put up with much more, but it was worth it. A great setting for family photos!

The kids were quite excited by the tiny snake that we saw.


But possibly the best part for the kids was eating at the Old Spaghetti Factory at the end!

KC – 5/4/2013

We timed this visit to KC for the same time that Holly was going to be in town. We actually didn’t want to see Holly, but we did want to see her baby, David Laughing

It had been a few months since we had seen David and he is growing up soo fast! Lucky for us, he is still cuddly. We spent the whole weekend around the house hanging out with family. Several of my uncles came over to the house for dinner Saturday night and we had a fantastic time visiting wtih everybody.
