We left there and had lunch in Andover, KS at the Applebees and moved on to Augusta to meet with Maryann, Becky and of course the grandkids, Dane and Mandie came by too. It was a great visit, not very long but better than nothing. Love my cousins and relatives. So glad we had this time!

We went back to the KOA and had a nice dinner. Ken bar b qued veggie burgers and they were so good!!!
September 18th...Got up and left the KOA. Had a nice time there and definitely will be back. I wanted to visit the Little House on the Praire Home in Independence, KS..but they are in winter hours and closed for today. We will go again. So I was hoping to get to the Precious MOments Chapel in Carthage, MO today and we did. So sweet..glad I got to go, another thing off the bucket list..Of course we added Big Bruiser to it in KS..so we'll have to go another time.
Tonight we are at the Days Inn in Springfield MO it is only $48.99 for the night and it is so nice! The guy at the front desk had everything ready when we got here, there is free wifi, breakfast, the room is huge and looks brand new! Love it and good area. I would definitely come back!
Tomorrow we will probably be back at Don's. Weather is definitely changing.
