Mini Family Vacay - Part One!

Whew!  I have some catching up to do on my blog!  :)  A couple of weekends ago we took a quick trip down to Kansas and Missouri.  My step-dad was coming in to the KC airport to visit his family in Columbia, MO for the week and Drew and I decided to pick him up and go with him!  We headed down to KC a day early and had some family fun.  We spent the day at the Deanna Rose Farmstead. If you have little ones and have never been - it is a MUST.  The place was amazing, fun and cheap!  We spent the majority of the day there and only spent $16.00!  It was awesome! 

 Old School House

 They had apple trees all over and each one produced a different kind of apple.  Jules was fascinated by all of them!

 She was able to "mine" for "gold" and other treasures.  This was one of my favorite parts of the day.  She found quite a few rocks and proudly has them on display in her room!  :)

 Anxiously waiting to.......
 .....ride her first horse!
She was a little nervous at first, but once she got on "cowboy" she was LOVING it!  She kept wanting to go back.  :) 

 She fed baby goats, but was a little too scared to go into the pen with them.  Good thing.  We saw them jump on a lady wearing all white and well she looked like swamp thing by the time they were done with her!  :)

 The place was just beautiful.  Lots of gardens and different animals.  This is their gorgeous butterfly garden.  We had a nice time there just taking in the beauty. 

Again, it was a perfect day.  Drew and I both said that this was one of the best days as a family.  I can't wait to go back - hopefully this fall when they have their pumpkin patch ready!  :)
