Precious Moments Chapel

We had planned on stopping here on the way to Missouri but we ended up stopping for a new battery for the van instead! We managed to make it on the way home though and it's a really neat place to visit. It is also FREE! Well worth the short drive off I-44. It's in Carthage Missouri.

They have a tour every hour and you go down to the 'Chapel' and they explain all of the paintings and stuff to you then you can walk around and see everything on your own. Pictures are allowed but no 'flash' photography so some came out rather dark. There are some really pretty stained glass windows in the chapel and the museum has a very big doll house that was really cool to look at. Here are a few more pictures!

This is the 'chapel'.

Painting in the chapel, it tells a story that I can't even explain!

This is the ceiling inside the chapel!

Our Cabin

This is our little cabin in the woods. It's called 'Pa's Place'. All of the cabins had names. Mostly wild west type names like 'Annie Oakley', 'Butch Cassidy', etc. It was a cute LITTLE cabin with a queen bed and a twin trundle bed, kitchenette, dining table/chairs and bathroom. Their is a porch on the front (in the picture) and the same size covered porch on the back with a gas grill. We used the kitchen area but didn't get a chance to grill anything! They also have a pool, game room and store. And they provide a shuttle bus to and from Silver Dollar City!


We took a little trip. Loaded up the van, kids & Nana and headed to Branson, Missouri. We stayed at "The Wilderness Log Cabins & Rv Park". It was a fun trip with lots of interesting things happening along the way. Nothing like having some ol' toothless mechanic say 'your lucky that battery ain't exploded yet'... ahhhh nice! The folks at the Wal Mart auto center in Joplin are real friendly! And if your a dishonest person you can drive away with there little machine that starts your car if you have a dead battery! They just left it in my van and had no clue it was even there!
We stayed busy the entire time. We rode the ducks, the girls saw the 'Hollywood Wax Museum', Silver Dollar City. The kids swam alot at the pool where we stayed too! Will have more pics when I figure out how to put more then one in a post!
