NieNies Roadies Day 11//Lottie's BIRTHDAY



Today is my sweetheart Lottie's SIXTH birthday!
But, I am being a meanie mom and pretending that her 
birthday is on Friday (or maybe Thursday)
when we will be back in Utah and I can give her a proper birthday.
Day 11 was epic!
We rolled into Pawhuska, Oklahoma Sunday evening.
  Ree and I texted back and forth about plans to visit her amazing Mercantile/restaurant/bakery/boarding house.
  Ree, aka: The Pioneer Woman, so graciously reserved 
a wonderful round table enough for all of us Nies
near the corner of her restaurant where
 we all enjoyed a delicious breakfast.  
When I say delicious, I mean amazingly delicious.  
(This is the best and only photo I took of the food because I
feel awkward taking photos of my food).

Everything from Ree's cinnamon rolls to the 
croissant french toast and breakfast burritos.  
Oh man.  EVERYTHING WAS SO GOOD.
I don't mean to rub it in to anyone, but while we enjoyed our breakfast, 
some of Ree's assistants spoiled us and brought us over each a cusomized
goodie bag filled with gifts picked from her shop.
I don't mean to rub it in further, but after breakfast we were greeted
by Jackie upstairs in the bakery with more bags filled with 
 delicious treats from the bakery.

But the best part was having Ree give us a personal tour of 
her new boarding house.
Each room is designed with a name and theme. 
 They are beautifully decorated.
I can't wait to go back and stay!

Thank you Ree.  
WE love you so much (especially my gingers!). 
Then we jumped in the RV with
bags full of Ree's desserts headed for Colorado.
(Stopped for gas on the Kansas/Colorado border)
We only have two more days left on our epic RV trip.
It's sad to see the end...no, really we are!
This trip with Cruise America has been amazing in every way,
and in a few more days I will blog about why I think you should
consider taking your family on one of these trip-a-roos!

We may be slightly stir crazy, but mostly we're all still having a blast.

**Remember me and my wooden hand with REE?
