Heart Friends at the Cabin

Welcome to the Cabin! Earlier this month the Heart Friends gathered in St. Louis for yet another long weekend of laughter and sharing, eating and playing. In St. Louis we enjoying meeting little Ellie, Paulette's granddaughter who lives just around the corner....and what a doll baby she is. We also explored the quaint old town of St. Charles. Somehow we ALL found places to sleep at Paulette's and then on Saturday morning we packed up two vans and a car

and headed to THE CABIN (definitely, not THE SHACK).

We knew there was some SURPRISE along the way but didn't know what it was until we arrived at the ANIMAL SAFARI.What fun...Danny and Jack went ahead of us and lined up this tram for our drive thru the park. The animals are friendly and love to eat out of your hand, or or pocket or bag. The camel was simply hilarious. There were smiles all around for the entire trip.

One day we spent in Branson ~ some enjoyed shopping while most went to see Yakov Smirnoff. Dinner at Lambert's Cafe, home of the throwed rolls, capped off the day. Time in the hot tub, a picnic lunch on a pontoon boat ride, chatting in the sun on the porch over looking the lake doesn't get any better than that!

The blondes in the group tried to convince the rest that they truly have more fun.

In the end, we know that we all enjoyed the weekend and want to go back to the cabin again some time. Plans are already in the making for a gathering in Lancaster County in the spring.
