Laura Ingalls Wilder House
The new batch of photos is up on Flickr, documenting our trip to the Laura Ingalls Wilder House and Museum at Mansfield, MO. She, Almanzo, and their daughter, Rose, moved here in 1894 and she lived here until her death in 1957. All of the Little House books were written at this farm. We also took a quick trip up to Arrow Rock to see family and enjoy the quaint little village. Our cousin there was kind enough to give us a home-cooked meal, a place to stay for the night, and a private tour of Arrow Rock (where she works) the next morning. Tonight is our last night on the road. We'll arrive in Denver tomorrow and I fly back to Oregon on Thursday. We have had so much fun but it will be nice to get home again.
