Hitting The Road

Greetings to all!  It's me, Maggie!  Cam and I thought we'd fill you in on part of our trip to Illinois starting today.  Let's take a look at Day One!

We drove and drove and drove.  Well, Dad did.  Cam and I napped pretty much the whole way.  I did catch some highlights out the window like this:

The "K"!

That's Kauffman Stadium - home of the Kansas City Royals! They are a baseball team Mom likes to  yell at   cheer for. Seeing it meant we were in Missouri -- the land Cammie and I were born in!

We kept driving. And driving. And napping. I eventually saw this:

The Stan Musial Veterans Memorial Bridge, St. Louis, MO

We were going over the mighty Mississippi River! Wow. AND it meant we were in Illinois! I'd never been to Illinois. Cam said she wasn't sure if she had been or not. But anyway - Illinois! Land of Lincoln!

I guess in keeping with the whole "Lincoln" theme, we stayed in a log cabin, as you saw yesterday.

This was our first look at it:


Our place was the small cottage on the left.


The family who owns it lives across that covered deck, in the main house.  They were very nice people!

Let's head inside!

I was very interested in this huge fireplace:


It was in the 90s outside, so no fire.  It was fun going behind that quilt hanging there, though!  Mom used my full name a lot when I did that.  Interesting.

The cabin had a little table and chairs:


Sorry I'm out of focus; it was a bit dark in the cabin.

Here's Cammie!

"Hello, everyone!"

Mom and Dad packed our beds and even brought Buckingham Palace along so we'd feel at home.  Cam really appreciated having both!  As for me ...

"How come there are only two robes and 4 of us??"

Anyway, more on our visit tomorrow!

Yours sincerely,

  7. What a pretty place to stay! Momma stayed in a little log cabin when she was in Wyoming a few months ago, but I didn't get to go with her.

  8. That's a cute little cabin! It's too bad there wasn't enough robes for your mom and dad. Our mommy and daddy used to go to Royals stadium way back in the old days. They went to the other stadium next door too!

  9. What a cool long drive...and the cabin was super cute!
