Update From the Road Pt. 2

August 25, 2010

We are sitting in my sister's basement. We arrived safely in Lathrop, Mo. on Monday night. After a quick dinner and visit with our friends Asa and Carol, we were off to bed. It had been a long day. Our drive went smooth and the kids did great. By the end of the day it looked like a food mart and craft store collided in the back seat.

Yesterday, my sister joined us in Lathrop and we drove out to see some Amish country. It was fun and interesting for the kids. Son just couldn't get the concept that the horse and buggy weren't for "rides" but were actually someone's mode of transportation.

We really enjoyed the rest of our visit in Lathrop, and hope to come back soon. Daughter and Son now have to new heroes. McKenzie and Isaac were so sweet to our kids. Daughter said McKenzie is SO beautiful. She got to watch her cheer, listen to her sing, and played makeup with her. She was mesmerized.

Son said Isaac was "just like my brother" and had lots of fun playing basket ball and the Wii with him.

Today, we spent our morning at a dairy farm. We got to milk a cow, pet a calf, see how they process the milk, and taste all the different of milk they make. There was Banana, Orange, Strawberry, Root Beer, and Chocolate. They were all yummy and we bought some of each to take along with us.

Then, it was off to IHOP (International House of Prayer), only about an hour away. We went to the prophecy room---all four of us. It was a great experience, and they ministered and encouraged each one of us.

Then, it was off to dinner with my sister. Last time I was here I went to an all-you-can-eat Italian restaurant. I knew daughter would enjoy it, as noodles are her favorite!

Now, we are all ready for bed and a full day tomorrow at the prayer room.
