What's happening in my neck of the woods, well my mom, "Sweet Tea" and me went on a Bunko reunion this weekend! Can you say Girls Road Trip!
We meet up with about 8 ladies, 6 of them we used to play bunko with about 2 decades ago (ouch! that was painful to admit!) I was so fortunate to be able to be in a group of ladies that included not only my mom, but my Aunt as well! Here is a pic of the 3 of us below.
We all meet up at one the ladies Lake house on Grand Lake, here in Oklahoma. Where we ate dinner, caught up on all the gossip and all the kids, and grand kids photos. We laughed and talked to about 2am. (at least some of us did!). Then we all got up, and ate a yummy breakfast that Helen had made for us. Then we grabbed our purses and we headed out the door to Sandstone Gardens which is located right outside of Joplin, MO. Their brochure describes it best "Sandstones Garden is an inspirational shopping destination featuring endless home & garden delights." It really did! It also has a Bistro located in it's facility. So all of us girls got to "do lunch" together. Below is a photo of us all looking at the menu.
The food was yummy! They had these wonderful soup/salad combo's, or a salad/sandwich combo meal and all the meals came with a choice of dessert. (yep! I total splurged for this meal!) Below is a photo of one of the ladies lunch. Didn't I tell you it was good!
We had such a delightful day! We all went back to the lake, had a snack then packed back up and headed home. If you are from Oklahoma this is such a great day trip! We did not got into the heart of Joplin, since much of the town has been destroyed since the tornado hit Joplin a few weeks ago. However do not let that stop you from heading up for a nice day trip! Sandstone gardens was a delight!
