Road Trip: Heartland

Day 3 (Wednesday 04/07/16)

I hope everyone is having a great week.

To start our day, we made a quick stop at Bass Pro in Springfield, MO, the original Bass Pro.  Truthfully, we should of planned for 5 hours, next time, what an amazing place. After leaving Springfield, we were headed to Kansas.

It rained much of the morning while on are way to Kansas City.  We Plannedl to do lunch with some of our guests at a place they say is “The Best BBQ Around.”  I think our son, Dillon, would disagree and say that Texas BBQ is better.  So, we met Keith Gloe and Jay Mader at Joe’s Kansas City BBQ. WOW! Delicious, the BBQ defiantly exceeded our expectations and is probably some of the best BBQ I have ever had.

After leaving Kansas City, we were on are way to visit our Little Boy Lake neighbors, Dick and Dina.  But, we had to make another pit stop at Bass Pro in Olathe, Kansas.  Olathe is a suburb on the Southwest side of Kansas City, which is also where Dick and Dina live.  We spent a few hours at Bass Pro and got a few things for the kids at the resort. We had a wonderful visit, and Dina always does some good home cooking for us.  It is always a joy to see them and after today we are excited to see everyone  at the lake this summer.

Today, we only logged 180 mile. Each day we get a little closer to home, and with that the colder weather too. But hey, before we know it MN will be sunny and warm.

We are very excited to get home and we should be able to finish the road trip tomorrow.

Enjoy your evening.



P.S.  Today’s blog is dedicated to Merle Haggard and in his loving memory.  Rest in peace and may your music live on forever.
