Road Trippin'

So its been kind of crazy around here again. We are in Road Trip Planning Mode. We will be leaving in about a month for a 2 week cross country road trip.

The last few days have been spent getting our car in tip top shape and registered and emission tested and all that fun stuff. Now that those details are taken care of, we can start the planning on where to stop and what to see and do.

The list of places we will be hitting between Phoenix and Mt Vernon Iowa are:

Amarillo, TX
Tulsa, OK
St Louis, MO
Chicago, IL
Mt Vernon, IA
Lamoni, IA
Kansas City, MO
Denver, CO
Flagstaff, AZ

We are planning on stopping in those cities to site see and spend a little time. While we are in Mt Vernon we will be having MIL's memorial service, on the 8 month anniversary of her death actually.

We are so excited for this trip and to show Hannah so many places. So, if you have any favorites in these locations, what are they? What do you recommend we do and see?


  1. I've only been to two places on your list...St. Louis and Kansas City, both on my honeymoon last year. I definitely recommend the Hallmark Museum in K.C., you can go at your own pace! While in St. Louis you really must go to America's Incredible Pizza Company! If you like flowers, I would also recommend the Missouri Botanical Gardens (in St. Louis)...and, of course the arch!

    Have a wonderful trip! Sounds like a really great time (except for the memorial service, sorry for your loss).

  2. i LOVE roadtrips. they are so much fun. i hope you guys have a fun end of summer fling.

  3. What a fun trip! I have been trying to talk my husband into a trip like that for so long!

    Hope you are having a great week!
