Back from Missouri

Branson Mo. Ducks!
These Ducks are so much fun, you go touring around an area in them. They were originally designed & built in WWII to be used on land and water so they could send troups and supplies from ships to land. These Ducks are built using that design and adding a roof. Here is info if you are interested in finding out more about how they were used during wartime. They were also used during Hurricane Katrina to rescue people stranded by flooding.
My daughter...on the Duck...

Here we go into the water! Weeeeeeee!!!!!!!

We had a great trip to Springfield to see my sister and brother in law. Here we are riding the Ducks...my folks, my sister and you can almost see my BIL. I'd never ridden them before, but it was fun. You get to see some of the area and go land and water. Our tour guide said the wheels are still turning even in the water. We just drove right in!

I did manage to find a quilt store too...more on that later.
