Mizz-zur-rah Mizz-zur-ree

How ever you pronounce it, we loaded the fam up last weekend, and headed to Missouri to visit Jeremy's Grandma.  Bless her heart, she's 95 and I don't think she heard a word we said all weekend, but I knew she was happy we were there.  
At one point I was going a little stir crazy because Grandma lives in "the middle of nowhere Missouri."  I'm talking house - cornfield - silo - house - wheat get the point.  I sent this picture below to my mom and sister from the bathroom with the caption "help me."  They thought it was real hilarious.  
But the boys were having a blast with their cousins and that's all that mattered.  They were having so much fun that we knew they'd never know if we slipped out for an afternoon to Cape Girardeau, which is a really neat town about 45 minutes away from Grandma's.  
First stop was lunch at Saffron Bistro, a fantastic Thai place!  It was soooo good.  I've got to remember to write a Yelp review! 

After lunch we had a little time to shop, and I'm so glad I picked Annie Laurie's Antiques as our first stop, because that's all we ended up having the time for.  This place was huge!  I was in complete heaven! 
I loved the sea of umbrellas when I walked in 

 Here are just a few of the treasures I found at Annie Laurie's 

Twas a good trip all and all, and it was so nice to see family we don't often get to see. Goodbye Missouri.  Until next time.
