Still Driving Around

Sooo . . . Jess and I went to the Castleberry family reunion (my maiden name). This is an annual event, on this weekend because my grandfather was born on the fourth of July. Our family went in 1990 and 1999, which means none of us had been there in eleven years. Jess and I stopped at a couple of interesting places on the way out to Illinois.

Outside of a hot dog place. I don't know why.

One of the reasons I love Route 66. World's Largest Rocking Chair.

That's Jess with my great Aunt Grace. I'm not sure how old Aunt Grace is, but I'm guessing at least ninety. And let me tell you, I had trouble keeping up with her when I was following her out to her farm. Maniac.

We left Illinois with Grandma Castleberry and went to Branson. Grandma and I caught the Patsy Cline show, very nice, while Jess caught the Outlet Mall. We also went to The Butterfly Palace and The Chinese Acrobats.

All in all a great trip, now we are getting ready to go to Minnesota. Randy is going to the Boundary Waters and I am getting some more quality time with my daughter-in-law. More pics soon, she has a baby horse!
