everything is up to date in kansas city

but not neccesarily in jamesport, mo.

we took a day trip to adam-ondi-ahman and jamesport. pretty drive, but we would never want to have our car break down out there. we would be stranded for days in little towns that time forgot. sort of like swiss family robinson, but swiss family simpson. we certainly would have our pick of the finest amish furniture around, but i don't think the amish would have appreciated me turning my nose up at their outhouses. seriously, there wasn't a mcdonald's for miles...like 20. and they have mcdonald's pretty much everywhere. third world countries have mcdonald's, jamesport, mo does not. we were able to eat at a fantastic amish restaurant. home cooked vittles just like granny never made. plus, check out the classy shopping options.

anywhooo, the weather was so fantastic this weekend, i had to take a picture of our house with the trees in full bloom. the pink tree next to the porch is a flowering dogwood, state tree of missouri. who says you never learn anything from me? we also have some flowers growing that the neighbor claims are called "naked ladies". i will definitely be replanting those next year. naked ladies every spring!
love it!

Your house is beautiful!!! I am so jealous of you to have a house and it be in such a gorgeous area.
Is it worth it to drive through adam-ondi-ahman on the way to Utah and spend an extra day in the car with two kids and a pregnant me? Seriously, we can't decide, but it is on our list (my dad wants us to stay in St. Louis for a day too).
