Our Friends Came to Visit

How delighted we were to have two of our very dear friends (high school), Marlene Stock and Karen Taylor, come to visit us. It was such a treat for us to have them here and we had a really wonderful time. Besides seeing some of the local sights, we took a trip to the Lake of the Ozarks, staying in their timeshare. On the way, we stopped at the Bothwell Lodge in Sedalia -- wish I had more pictures of that site.

After checking into our timeshare, we took a drive to Ha Ha Tonka Park where we had a little hike getting up to the burned out castle. That site and the surrounding areas were so gorgeous and we had a beautiful day besides.

Below are pictures of the burned out mansion.

I wish I had more pictures of some of the other places we went, it was all so wonderful. In addition to Lake of the Ozarks and the local sights in Independence, we went into Kansas City to the Hallmark Center.

Marlene and Karen flew in Thursday evening and we took them back to the airport Tuesday morning. Such a fun time. Thanks again, friends, for making that effort.
