Oh, Kansas

I forgot that I had wanted to blog about Natalie's travel journal from our trip until it turned up the other day and I finally took some pictures of it. It's just so cute and funny. This journal kept her busy a LOT on the drive. She spent so much of the time just looking out the window for things to add. Some states had plenty and some states ... not so much. She illustrated and labeled the things that stood out to her. Enjoy :) Click on the pics to make them bigger if you need to.

This next one says "going to a state is like going through a different dimension". LOL!

I saved the best for last. I don't think she found Kansas very inspiring, haaaahahahaha! Kansas according to Natalie: It's the most boring state in the world. It stinks. And it's "not busy". I'd say that's an understatement.


  1. This is a keeper, don't you think? Thanks for sharing!

  2. I clicked on each so I could catch all the details. What a treasure. I laughed and agree that going to another State is like going through another dimension! :o) I'm going to show this to my 7 year old, hopefully it will make him want to do one when we drive to Tennessee. (fingers crossed)


  3. Ha! I'm originally born and raised in Kansas and got out of there at the first opportunity (20 yrs old). Your daughter is right, it's hot, it stinks, and it certainly isn't busy. love her perspective on riding through there.

  4. You mean Kansas, right? Might want to spell check. My state doesn't get a lot of respect, which is unfortunate from people who just drive through and don't actually spend any time here.

    1. Oh, thank you, I do know how to spell Kansas! But I fixed my typo :) No disrespect intended, these are just the observations of my 8-year-old.
