This weekend, I had the distinct pleasure of traveling to Missouri with my family. I brought my camera along with me because whenever my family gets together, there's always a good time. Although we were there on family business, we did find plenty of time to screw around. Here's some of the things that happened...

Fueling up the Element to get on the road.

Met up with the family to find that my sisters, Cindy and Tammy, are dressed as their alter-egos...Dorris and Faye.

And the silly shenanigans begin...Dorris went to use the outhouse but got attacked by Faye.

While trying to remain concealed, I'm eventually spotted by Dorris.

Startled, Dorris tries to make a speedy escape, but doesn't get far.

A talk with Faye...always a sobering experience.

Eventually we got hungry and went out for lunch. We found a little bar and grill in the center of town called "The Crossroads." They had some damn good burgers.

We hit the appetizers pretty hard. Onion rings, tater skins, and fried mushrooms....oh the humanity!

Finally got to the main course. The portions were pretty generous. Here's Tammy and her monsterous burger.

You might be a redneck if...you have a chandelier made of antlers.

I'm not sure why, but this place had the weirdest chair I've ever seen. Why they would have a gyno chair around the pool table is beyond me...to each their own I guess.

They had an old coke machine. Sweet!
