Our Memorial Day Weekend... (warning!! LOTS of pictures)

I can't believe that I am just now posting pictures of our weekend and the next weekend is almost here. I love four day work weeks. I think we should pass a law on only four day work weeks...and soon!
Here is a glimpse into how we spent our weekend. Saturday Two Poots decided to hop in the car and see where the road would take us. We drove all day long with the windows down and stopping at some pretty cool places along the way! Our first stop was Jamesport, Missouri. It is a very small Amish town with great antique shops and the most amazing creamery!!

We drove through some very interesting towns.

And found the world's largest goose! Meet Maxie...

While visiting Maxie we fought off the worlds most annoying bugs!!

We also saw a covered bridge for the first time. It was so pretty.

We ended our trip by having a bottle of wine and a picnic at our favorite winery in Rocheport, Missouri. We were able to see the sunset over the Mighty Missouri River while enjoying a honky tonk band. Overall it was the perfect way to end the perfect day!

Sunday we had a cookout with Scott's family!

That night we headed downtown to Union Station for Celebration at The Station! This has definitely become a Memorial Day tradition. We have a blast there!

(I have an obsession with these chips. Don't put a bag in front of me or I am known to eat the entire thing. Okay maybe not in one setting but in a day!!)
Monday we had friends over for a bbq and then went and saw Sex and The City 2. This was one of the best weekends we have had!
