Dare to Share #531

It's Friday night, and you know what that means.. 

It is time to Dare to Share! 

Well as I mentioned last week, we are currently on vacation.  We have spent a few days at my moms and have done some fun things.  

Early in the week we had chance to go to a fun roadside stop in Missouri call Uranus Fudge Factory. While it does have a fudge factory with amazing fudge, it also has some other fun attractions like the largest belt buckle, a small side show museum, a resident cat mascot, and novelty gift shop.  We spent about an hour there, and all of us enjoyed it. 

Another place we stopped near Springfield is Lamberts Cafe in Ozark, Missouri.  It is known for their tossed rolls. When I say tossed rolls, I really do mean they throw hot bread at you, and you try to catch it.  I was sitting close to where the bread thrower was standing,  so I did catch my roll.   

Lamberts was another stop that the entire family enjoyed.  Our server Cassie was awesome, and the atmosphere was lively. The meals and drinks were good, and also massive.  We will definitely stop there again the next time we visit.

On our first full day at my mom's house, my brother and his kids came to visit.  One of the teen girls asked if we could go visit the local cat cafe. Everyone wanted to go, so off we went.  This was also a fun experience.  There is a cafe where you can enjoy drinks, before you go into the cat room to play and mingle with all the cats and kittens. They were all so sweet, and enjoyed the attention.  The cat in the tie is Mr. Boots. He is one of the resident cats, and the one in charge.  

On Wednesday we visited Red Oaks 2.  If you have ever heard of the artist Lowell Davis, it is a small old fashioned village that he created by moving and restoring structures that were no longer being used.  It is now a tourist attraction, and neighborhood for a handful of people.  

It was part memories of the past, part art museum, and part farm.   Even though there were some private residences in Red Oaks 2, you were encouraged to walk around and explore many of the old buildings, take photos, and admire Lowell Davis's art.  We met one of the locals whose chickens had escaped their enclosure.  She came over to greet us.  She was very nice, and told us about how much she loved living there. She gave us a little bit of background of the area, and encouraged us to check out all the little special things hidden on the property.  This is another place that we would like to visit again, especially after reading more about it online once we got home.   

As you are reading this, we just got done spending a fun day at Branson.  A couple of weeks ago, I wrote a post that we would be visiting the Hollywood Wax Museum Entertainment Center .  Well we had the chance to visit today, and I will be sharing more about my vacation week in Missouri in a couple of new posts early in the week! 

Since it is late, and I am exhausted from our day, I getter get this party started. Link up and HAVE FUN!!
