On our drive home from lovely Colorado, we decided to spend one day seeing the sights. Leaving dear friends behind is always a hard thing to do, so we ended up leaving later than originally planned. We stopped in Topeka the first day we were on the road, and then decided to go to the Kansas History Museum on Wednesday. We spent about four hours in there, and if you're ever passing through, we highly recommend you visit there! I can safely say that we could have spent the entire day there and still not have felt that we had seen it all! So, without further ado, I present to you some pictures from our day's excursion...

All of the McDonald children aboard the train in the indoor play area. I mean, we are still children, right?

Dale Evans and Roy Rogers wannabes.

They were really hoping the horse would come off it's stand and help them win the horse race. It happened in Mary Poppins, didn't it?

A cowboy in plaid that's something I've never seen before!

Aren't they just too cute? *smile* I just love my parents...

My, what big eyes you have...

Awww...look at the ham holding the piggies! :)

He likes buffalo. I think I want one as a pet. If only I could find a place to buy one...

She's a hard worker, honestly!

My thoughts are worth more than a penny. So sorry. :)

So long! Farewell! Auf Wiedersehen! Goodbye...wait, the train is leaving without me...

"No! Stop! Don't do it, Caleb!!"

Oh, Starbucks is a nice addition, Mom. Not sure how I could have missed that neon sign out there with all the other shops... :)

This is definitely not something she should be in the habit of doing.

Well, you see, the oxen joined the choir invisible, so we put our strapping young men down there. Caleb looks thrilled.

Some of the McDonald children at McDonald's.

Decisions, decisions...which way should we go?

No lions, and tigers and bears, oh, looks like a ghost is aboard the train!

Eeeek! And another one!

*happy sigh* It looks like we've found a new home...should be cozy and rather chummy inside, don't you think?


  1. What a fun place.. the picture of Abigail (I assumed that was Abigail;P) looking into the cannon was just too funny! =)

    Have a lovely day Tiffany!

    wonderful. happy me!

  3. Staring down the cannon...haha! Reminds me that I usually couldn't bring myself to do that - for some reason I always got a little nervous standing in front of a cannon display, even though I knew it wasn't loaded and all - I guess I had too vivid an imagination.


  4. I'm genuinely ecstatic that you actually went to McDonalds. Now, of course, you realize that they have food that is, quite simply, amazing.

    Jusso you know, tepees lack indoor plumbing. Also, you, Jess, Melissa, and a tent are about the last things in the world that I'd put together... :P

  5. Tiffany,
    What fun you had!! Yes, it looks like a place we would enjoy, and very similar to Wilbur Wright's birthplace.

    I think Caleb and Nic are related - it's the "under the threat" thing they both have.

    I'm not sure the TP will work for your family. Probably could do chipotle easily in there, but what about honey ice cream?

    Many, many blessings, Mrs.H

  6. Jessica,

    Actually, that was Grace looking in the canon. :) They look quite a bit alike, especially from behind. It was fun and we hope to go back sometime.

    Lauren Ann,

    We are indeed a very happy family. :)


    lol, that is sooo funny! I sometimes wonder what makes kids do things like that. It makes for great photos, though! :)


    Actually, we had breakfast there the other day, and I was sick from just smelling it! I had a yogurt parfait instead. :) lol, oh come on! Why couldn't you see those four things together?!?! :)

    Mrs. H.,

    Yes, methinks y'all would thoroughly enjoy it! Just don't go without us, okay? :)

    lol, yes, I was thinking the same thing..Caleb underneath the train brought back fond memories of y'alls visit. :(

    *laughing* No, the tepee wasn't something we'd voluntarily move into! :) I'm not seeing the honey ice cream either. :) Love you!

  7. Wow... it looks like you all had a fabulous time! :) Sweet memories indeed!!!!

    Blessings~ Jen

  8. I'm glad to see that Caleb and William are equally yoked.

  9. Jen,

    Our trip was just wonderful and one I wouldn't trade for the world. We don't get the chance to vacation very often, so we treasured each and every moment.

    Mr. H.,

    *laughing* I can't tell you how much your comment has had us all in stitches! :) Miss you!

  10. Too many photos! It is hard to decide which ones to comment on!

    Dale and Roy were never that good looking...

    Nice piggies, and hams, and other swine like creatures!

    How about a dollar? I'll pay a whole dollar... **grin** Nice sign.

    Great, looks like my brother is rubbing off on yours. Don't get crushed Caleb!

    West, go West young man! And ladies, and all other associated parties!

    Very nice museum. Though, if you are going to move into the tepee, I might suggest a duplex.



  11. *laughing* I have to agree, Em and William are awfully cute. :)

    A whole dollar? *thinks about it* No, I think they're worth more than that too. :)

    Oooo, I like the idea of a duplex...thanks for the suggestion.

  12. Tiffany, I had to tell you that I love your poem in Stacy's book "Raising Maidens"! All you girls' writing is so lovely :)
