We had a whirlwind several weeks following the death of my aunt in a date nearly a thousand miles from us. The children and I joined other family to make the trip to Missouri, the state of my birth. You’ll see more about the trip in an upcoming post, but for now, here’s some snapshots of the past week and a half.

We took some time to go to the top of the Gateway Arch.
We loved our stay, our breakfast, and our host at Hilty Inn Bed and Breakfast. Ms. Hilty was lovely, and her signature cookies were amazing. Our son insisted I get the recipe and she graciously obliged.
We learned to play Continental Race, a board game we received through the Homeschool Review Crew. We’ve had so much fun and learned so much about continents and countries. We’ll be sharing a video review on our YouTube channel in March.
I made our maple oatmeal cookies to contribute to our Hawaii planning meeting. Recipe coming.
Speaking of: some family, including myself, will be traveling to Hawaii soon to visit my niece stationed there. We’re only a little excited!
We spent time at the park.
Lee became a member of our church.
We don’t use Snapchat without parental supervision. We only use it to make funnies for the family.
Including silly videos like this.
Backyard axe throwing.
Lee made his family-famous hand-cut fries to enjoy around the fire pit.
And a beautiful sunset to complete the weekend.

We’re grateful for a safe, meaningful trip, and for a relaxing catch-up time upon our return home. I’ll be back to sharing posts, reviews, and recipes this week!
