The Road Trip...

So aside from the trauma at the end the trip to Joplin really was fun. On the way there we stopped at one of my favorite places call Driftstone Pueblo. It is off the St. Elmo exit in Illinois and it is this amazing shop that deals in Native American art, beads, feathers, leatherwear, and much more. Here are the photos of the beautiful metal sculptures and such in front of the store.

While in Joplin we went to lunch at Golden Corral. In attendance was my aunt's Annie and Cathy, my mom, my sister Traci, my sister Krystie, her boyfriend Bo, my nephew Hunter, his girlfriend Infinity, Seth and me. We sat and caught up, since we hadn't seen Krystie and Hunter in over a year. Here are some photos from the get together.

On the way home Seth and I stopped off in Springfield to go to one of the giant Bass Pro Shop Outdoor World shops. It was seriously huge and they had while ponds and streams built in it. If taxidermy makes you squeamy you may want to skip, but it really was an awesome place.
