Domestic Travel

Carthage, Missouri

Ah. Southwest Missouri!
We made a brief, two-night stop-over at Greg's & Deb's in Missouri on our way back to Wyoming.
By now, we were getting used to humidity & heat, except that the weather became cool
and wet with rain. So jumpin' in a lake was suddenly "out."

This was Alissa's & my first time at Greg's & Deb's house. I was pretty impressed with
their outbuildings, and by the size of the trees on their property. There was even talk of
cutting down one very impressive smokeball tree like the one we have here in Wyoming,
(the one we have grows so slowly we call it a "bush"). I shudder to think of it.

Not since Scrabble have we had this much fun!
This gossip makes
Taylor blush.

No, Grace, I'd say gold is NOT better than white enamel.

Spot the looney?

Earlier in the summer, Eli & Taylor had taken a little trip with Gramma & Grampa Freeman to Carthage.
They spent some time at Stockton Lake; pictures below by Gramma Freeman:

Only way to catch fish here is to stay away from all the LOUD people, right, Merrill?
Grampa knows
where to fish.
