Road Trip Day 1

Well neighbors,

I hope you enjoy the updates and reviews that will be included with our Road Trip. We started out and the weather was beautiful. Everyone had a great time just watching the scenery. We started at about 5:00 pm as we decided to leave one day early and travel some at night. We didn't realize that by the time we stopped for the evening we would be driving in snow! We headed south! Weren't we supposed to leave all that behind? Anyway, by the time we stopped we were in Missouri just outside of Springfield. I do have to admit, the Dogwoods in bloom looked gorgeous with the snow. Sorry, but at 2:00 in the morning I did not feel like taking pictures, and by morning the snow had melted.

After dropping rather quickly into bed at 2:00 am, we slept in the next morning, and instead of breakfast we headed out for lunch. We went to Lamberts, near Branson Missouri. For those of you who have not heard of Lamberts, it is terrific and you can not leave still hungry!

Lamberts is called "Home of the throwed roll". Yes, you read that correctly. All throughout your meal at Lamberts, you will hear the cry of "Throwed roll!" "Who wants a roll?" And then from whereever they are standing, they draw back and THROW your roll to you! My children love it, and I have to admit, so do I.

Another great feature of Lamberts is the fixin's that get passed around. You can have as much or as little of them as you would like. Servers approach your table with items like macaroni and tomatoes, fried okra, fried potatoes with onions... they are great!

And of course your main meal also comes with 2 sides. Wait until you look through the pictures of our meals and tell me if you would still be hungry! Two of my children ordered the salads in bread bowls. I think they could have shared one and still had leftovers.

Another ordered roast beef, one had chicken tenders, my husband had meat loaf.

Your drinks are served in large insulated mugs. If you like them you can purchase one at the gift store on your way out.

The walls in Lamberts are covered with old license plates, old advertising signs, antiques, etc. The bathroom doors are labeled HENS and ROOSTERS. You sit on large wooden benches, with backs. They have balloons throughout the restaurant so the children can take one home with them.

Well, time to say good night. I will update more tomorrow! Great trip so far!

We went there 2 years and and we are thinking about vacationing in the ozarks this summer and stopping by lamberts. It's a must if you are in the area.

The restaurant sounds fun, if a little raucous. I'm not sure the seating would work for us, though; my husband's in a wheelchair, and transferring to a bench would not work for him.

I can also imagine either hilarity or mortification ensuing at even a well-trained service dog's reaction to "FREE FOOD! FLYING THROUGH THE AIR!!!! If I catch it, it's mine, right boss? Right????"

Yeah, that would be mortification, all right. :-)

Baby First TV 'I Can Sign" First Words

Hey Neighbors! Here is a really neat gift idea for someone with a young child.  Here we have I Can Sign (First Words) from Baby First  TV.  Now, I am just going to share right here that we have friends who have taught two of their children to sign at a very young age.  And it works!  Their children could sign before they could talk. The Dvd will teach your child many useful words that will be used in day to day life.  Words like: eat, water, milk, cookie, ear, feet hands, kiss, sleep, book, mother, father, and many other words.  Each word is taught in a short video clip where they will see pictures of the word/item and people signing.  There is also a little character at the bottom corner of the video signing along.  The Dvd can be done on English or Spanish.  Also included on the Dvd are printable coloring pages that you can print off by inserting the Dvd into your computer.  Inside the cover of the Dvd case is a little booklet that covers some of the words you and your child

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.

Thank you all so much for your love and support over the years. ~Mercy
