Happy Birthday Papa!

Happy 63rd birthday Papa!

For Papa's birthday we took a day trip down to Sikeston, MO. Now it may seem like driving three hours for lunch is a bit extreme but you gotta understand that this is no ordinary restaurant. Lambert's Cafe is the "Home of the throwed rolls", yes that's right they throw the hot, fresh rolls at you! And they walk around offering up fried okra, fried potatoes, sorghum for your rolls, black-eyed peas and macaroni & tomatoes. This is in addition to whatever you may have ordered. I was a little worried about eating here, since my surgery in December, over eating is a not a good idea unless I want to feel like I'm dying for the rest of the day. But I was just extra careful and all was well.

G had to try out the fast car as soon as we got there!

Mmmm, diggin in.

Yes, the food IS this good!

Notice G has his mouthful and so does Papa!

Me n my boys
After lunch we took the scenic route home, going through the Shawnee Forest area and making our way up to Bald Knob.

The view was gorgeous. Notice the welcoming committee in front of the welcome center? Daisy and Athena were quite friendly.

The Cross on Bald Knob has seen better days, in fact, it looks as though it is being torn down. But the website says it's being restored.

Sounds like an interesting day trip. I will admitt that I have never had any of the treats offered at the cafe. I'll have to put Lamberts on my list for our next trip south.

I love all your famiy photos - you guys sure looked like you were having fun. And you, dear Mindy, look incredibly nice! :-)
I'll wait until I know you a bit better, though, before I tease you about visiting someplace called "Bald Knob". lol :-)
