((Birthday breakfast at Cracker Barrel restaurant))

((The fireplace was going and it was so cozy and smelled so pleasant!))

We're back and feeling refreshed.  We went on a little trip yesterday to celebrate #2 son's seventh birthday birthday  We drove about 80 miles east of here and visited and stayed the night in a hotel with a pool and hot tub.

  We drove a bit farther west and took him to the shooting arcade at the Cabela's store.

((trying out potential camping equipment!))

 On the way back to the hotel we stopped for a Happy Meal and pizza for the folks.  We got a small store bought cake and had a party in our room. 

This morning we toured the Crayola Factory. 

Our son had a wonderful time and came home acting a bit spoiled!


  1. Aww what a fun time!!!! My daughter just had her birthday on Sunday! :)

  2. A bit spoiled...hee-hee!!  It does look like fun time though.  Relaxing and enjoyable.  Glad you were able to treat him.  My kids think your son must have more than one birthday a year because certainly he JUST had one!!

  7. Happy Birthday to your big guy!  It looks like Daddy had just as much fun as the birthday boy.What a hoot!   You in your skirt looking like a lady sitting on a potty.  Oh, I miss your sense of humor .I hope you are all relaxed and glad you enjoyed some time away from home. 

  8. Looks like the birthday boy & his family had a great time!  LOL on the camping gear...looks like something that I'll have to check into for our pop-up camper :D
