The pretty mug I bought at the stone house, made by a local artist
Fun miniature display with a train
Everything was so detailed!
Oh, this little poser...
Fun play area
Giant, wooden "Mr. Potato Head-ish" things
I also tried my hand/voice at auctioneering with this audio thing that gives you a script and you have to read it and follow along at a certain speed. It was hilarious and I sold a few head of steer! =)
We had lunch at Noodles and Company (yum!) If you've never been, you should go! I especially love their tomato basil bisque!!
On the drive to Kansas City, we saw a LOT of grasslands that had been burned, just like we learned about!
Not a great picture, but it gives you an idea of the line between burned and not
When we got back, the guy met us to check us in and give us a tour of the historic Rieger Hotel that we were staying in!
Here's a little blurb from their website:
The website didn't do it justice, since the space is so big (three stories really) and is situated in a way that is hard to show in pictures. We were soo excited to get to stay here for five days!
My picture taking started in the rooftop room:
This is such a bright, beautiful, fun space!
It also has a Great view of the city!
The massive and gorgeous kitchen
For all that cupboard space, it's awkwardly stocked (tons of pots and pans, but only one glassware cooking dish, no scissors, no plastic containers with lids, etc.)
The living room
One of the two master suites
(This part was sort of it's own little apartment, so Philip's coworker who came with her husband and two kids stayed here)
Their own kitchen
(laundry room on the left)
Second sleeping area (with toilet and shower in the back)
Amy, another one of Philip's coworkers, stayed in this room
Scott stayed here
This was the room our family shared
(the boys slept on cots in here)
Moriah slept on this chaise lounge in the giant bathroom
We had dinner, and settled in and then I went to the grocery store to stock up while Philip and a friend watched the basketball game. Michigan lost. =0/
