Here we are, actually on day 22 and we're still trying to post for days 4-6. We're going to forego much verbiage and let the pictures give a clue of what we've done in order to try and make some progress on postings. Who knows if we'll ever succeed at catching up. Obviously, our priority is enjoying our time so guess you'll all just have to understand (or not) We'll be in Sedona, AR for Thanksgiving. Now, going back to days 4-6.
Day 4 - Tuesday, November 11th - St. Louis, MO
An absolute highlight day of our trip. We had lunch with Aunt Rose (Rita's dad's sister), and cousins Jan and June. It was a treat to catch up with the families. Aunt Rose and Jan had been in Milwaukee a couple of times over the years. It was nice we finally made it here for a visit. We hadn't done a very good job of staying in touch so there was lots to catch up on. All in all, families are all doing well, getting through the bumps of life while enjoying the goodness. Hopefully our next visit will not be so
long from now and we'll stay longer and see all the cousins. Aunt Rose, Jan, and June - thanks for taking the time on such short notice. It will always be a highlight.
We tried to get a better plan for tomorrow and a better approach to the trip. We're still struggling on what to stop at, when, and how long we have to stay. We'll see if it works.
Days 5 and 6 - Wednesday/Thursday, November 12th and 13th - St. Louis, MO to Joplin and Joplin, MO through Kansas and into Tulsa, OK
The five pages of pictures will pretty much cover our story.
We spent night 5 in Joplin, MO and night 6 in Tulsa, OK. Since we had anticipated getting to Oklahoma City by night 6 and we ended up pulling into Tulsa as it turned dark, we still have work to do to balance all of the things to see, the history to absorb and the need/desire to get home within a few weeks. It's such a different kind of trip to our Northwest Adventure, we haven't yet adjusted or gotten into a rhythm. We'll work it out!!
