Our family trip to Missouri was so that Dad could attend the Men's Advance and so Andrea and I could spend some time helping/visiting with the Serven ladies. Unfortunately Mom was ill so we spent the weekend divided. Dad and Andrea went on to the Advance while Mom and I stayed at the hotel. Pictures of the Men's advance can be seen here as I was unable to take any.
I haven't the foggiest idea why, but I like to photograph distressed old buildings.
