Almost Home

We are in Oshkosh Wi and should be home tomorrow (Sat night) but first we have to go past Archivers and Michaels and all kinds of good shops at Fox River Mall.  Today we stopped in Burr Oak Iowa and toured the hotel that Ma and Pa Ingalls ran for a year.  From the tv show one gets the idea that everything happened in Walnut Grove.  Because I am a distant cousin of Laura Ingalls I got to sign a special book.  The door on the left were for men to enter the smoking room.  Door on the right was for ladies.  Everything was so very small.  Guests paid a quarter to sleep three to a bed and there were no doors on the rooms.

What a fun day you had and how interesting the hotel must have been.

Enjoy your stops at Archivers, Michaels, and the other fun shops in the mall. Arrive home safely and make sure to share photos of the baby!! I cannot wait to see them.
