Lily Dawn 7 Months Old- A Trip to OZ

We just returned from a family vacation to visit my sister April in Kansas. She took Lily and I to visit the OZ museum in Wamego, KS.


It all starts with the Ruby Slippers.



Do you see the Witch in the upper window?


This place was amazing! 

The OZ museum was built with a major grant from the State of Kansas and the generosity of the people of this small community, who also provided thousands of hours of volunteer time. The museum houses more than just memorabilia from the famous 1939 MGM musical starring Judy Garland! It encompasses earlier silent films, one of which starred none other than Oliver Hardy (Laurel and Hardy fame) as the Tin Man as well as "The Wiz" starring Diana Ross and Michael Jackson. 
(Taken from the website.) 




There was tons of memorabilia from everything OZ. Starting with the original L. Frank Baum books to all the movies and ending with the Broadway Musicals. 





Return to OZ
Love this movie!






To end it all there is a little house that fell on the Witch!

Thank you Aunt April for taking us to OZ!!!

At 7 months Lily has her two bottom teeth and looks like the top may come in any day. She is really getting around now and is almost crawling with both her arms and legs. She is on the second rise of her One Size Cloth Diapers and wears a 4 (same size as Ethan!) when she is in disposables. She is wearing some 9 month clothes but mostly 12 month!

Everyone who meets her says she is such a peaceful and happy baby. She is growing up too fast!

Pictures are better than nothing...Mercy was just asking today if we couldn't go to TX after Labor Day when the traffic was lighter...I had to remind her about school and money. Even homeschoolers have to do school sometime! You never know, though!
