My mom and my sister did the majority of the planning this round. (Me. Spoiled.) Karl, to his credit, managed to get us there. (This really was a feat in and of itself because SEVERAL parts of the the highway to and from were closed due to flooding in Arkansas and Missouri and we took some scary highways in the dark that had water creeping eerily close to the road.)
Here's a shot at dusk - I don't believe those power poles are supposed to be under water. Now add complete and total darkness - slightly CREEPY!
Anyway we got there. And safely! (ADVENTURE!)
We woke up and hit Grant's Farm and the Cardinals game: And arrived back home to mom and dad's to a room full of friends and family. (Did I mention I am spoiled?)
The menu? All my favorite foods including the famous Gus' Pretzels and ENTIRE trays of P'sghetti's cheese garlic bread.
What more could a girl want?
