Earlier in the week my husband discovered that we both had the day off on Thursday. Since we hardly ever have the same day off and he works every Saturday, Randy said “LET”S DO SOMETHING”!!!
That sounding so exciting…UNTIL…we had to decide how to spend our day. We both start surfing the net for “SOMETHING TO DO….WITHIN 150 MILES OR SO. I say hey how about St. Louis, Six Flags, Canoeing, or a Water Park.
Randy not much for water is like wellllll….How about “The Land Between the Lakes”.
I am not much for riding in the car looking for wildlife so I say “WHATEVER”!
Thursday arrives and we still have “NO CLUE” where we are going to spend our day…I didn’t even mention the boys putting in there 2 cents worth. It becomes total chaos.
We head out to pick Jessica (Cody’s Girlfriend) up, still not knowing which direction we are going in. I am totally stressed out. I can not handle chaos well at all. The guys are like lets just go and see where we land. Yeah right!!!! I am ready to say “GO HOME”.
Randy wins, mainly because I gave up and tell him to just plan the day. He then decided on “The Land Between the Lakes”. We all moan and groan. The day starts out with a two hour car drive with everyone complaining. You get the picture.
Our first stop inside The Land Between the Lakes is the Homeplace. This is a working farm back in the early 1800’s where the workers dress in costumes of that time period and work the farm just like they did back then. This was a fun place. I love to read books during this time period or Amish so this was a treat to me. They also had farm animals you could pet. http://www.lbl.org/HPGate.html
