This sounds like a great lead into a Daughtry song! And for those of you who have been diligently reading “My Summer Vacation” posts, you’re in the homestretch!
The last two days of our southeastern summer vacation found us staying outside of Little Rock. Sorry…no pics. I know you’re disappointed. ;)
On Day 13, as we wearily drove through southwestern Missouri on our way to Kansas City, I remembered from my childhood that Laura Ingalls Wilder and her beloved, Almanzo, had settled and lived out the rest of their lives in Mansfield, Missouri.
With a quick check and reprogramming of the Garmin, we were on our way to a major Laura Ingalls homestead (there are several throughout the country).
For more information about the Laura Ingalls Wilder home and museum click here.
In this next series of photos, you can see the Ingalls-Wilder property on their Rocky Ridge Farm. Photography is not allowed inside…:( Trust me when I saw it is incredible to see…almost nothing has been replaced!
Of course, no history and/or museum trip is complete without a visit to the gift shop. So, I saved the very best for last…our very own, “MARY” looking resplendent in her new sun bonnet!
Well, I hope you enjoyed your trip up and down to Florida from Kansas! And don’t forget…time is running out for you to enter my blogging anniversary give-away. Even if you are not a scrapbooker (if you make any type of cards, crafts, signage for an ETSY shop, etc.) you will not want to miss out on a chance to win this give-away! Contest closes at 5 PM CST THIS AFTERNOON! Click here to find out how to enter.
