Daytrippers: Baker Creek Heirloom Seed Festival – Mansfield, MO

Now anyone who knows me knows my INTENSE passion for gardening. Wait. I’ve never gardened a day in my life, that’s right. Let’s try that again. Everyone who knows me knows my INTENSE passion for going on roadtrips to weird, quirky places. That’s better. So when Michelle Houghton and Mara Dawn organized this little outing to an heirloom seed festival, how could I resist?
It turns out Baker Creek is ADORABLE. The cinnamon rolls are bigger than my head (and remember  I have a larger than average head.) There was hand-painted type EVERYWHERE…and to be honest with you…I’m thinking about planting some seeds. (What’s that? Oh, you have to water them? Oh… and dig in the dirt? Oh? It takes time and commitment? Okay. Well then, we’ll see how it goes…I bought some anyway.)

Katie Shelton is a walking visual treat. Every time she shows up to a play date I end up shouting, “AHHH!!!! I HAVE to take your picture!!!!!!” I think I have a very specific Katie-related form of turret syndrome. I’m looking into it.

@jennfortner is a truly beautiful person.

Daytrippers: Color Scavenger Hunt in Branson

We’re almost done with this dang winter weather which is great because I’m running out of ideas to do with these crazies. For the past few wintery months, there’s been one day a week where I simply can’t stand to be in our house another second and I crave an adventure. That adventure usually takes us to the most magical place on earth. No, not that one. The other one. Branson, Missouri.

This kitsch-filled wonderland is just the place to raise my spirits and give us something to do. And usually without ever leaving the car! I call it the Hwy 76 Scavenger Hunt. I call out objects and Callie has to find them. “Giant Gorilla? Yellow Plane!? Huge Chicken!” (Those are real examples, ya’ll. I’m not kidding around. Branson. Look it up.) Today. I changed it up and told Callie we were going on a Color Scavenger Hunt. We made it contest to find all the green. Then blue. Then pink. But when we found this absurdly amazing rainbow building, I couldn’t help it. We had to do an impromptu photoshoot.
