On Monday The Land That We Love Tour took us out of Tennessee through Memphis then into Arkansas and on to Texas.
Memphis Bass Pro Shop!
We crossed the Mississippi River to get to Arkansas.
The Mighty Mississippi!
We stopped in Texarkana on the Texas/Arkansas border to fuel up the car and us before heading on to Dallas.
We got off on the main drag which has establishments in Arkansas on the north side and Texas on the south side.
The Arkansas side of the road has Arkansas flags on the light poles and the Texas side of the street has Texas flags on the posts.
We are having good fellowship time with my youngest brother’s family.
We are thankful and grateful to God for another safe day on the road.
After our fabulous barbecue lunch in Kansas City we headed on east to just beyond St. Louis for the night. We crossed from Missouri into Illinois.
We crossed the Missouri River and in St. Louis we crossed the Mississippi River.

After we settled into our hotel in Illinois just outside of St. Louis for the night this restaurant was recommended to us for dinner. This is a one of a kind restaurant. We found out that this restaurant was featured on Man vs. Food. The portions are huge here so I ordered a small salad still feeling full from our huge lunch. These rolls are served at the table whether you order them or not with a wonderful butter cinnamon honey spread and just plain butter. The rolls were just the perfect temp and softness to please my palate. Delicious!
I’m saving our stop at Calvary Cemetery in E. St. Louis and the Bellefontaine Cemetery for posts after I’m settled into our hotel at our final destination.
Today was day #5 and we are now in Tennessee. I’ll be catching up with my posts soon. We are staying with a friend of Andrew and Katie here. Tomorrow we continue east to Asheville, North Carolina where we will be spending two nights! I’m looking forward to two nights in one picturesque spot! Finally the weather has settled down for us and we have had no challenges on the road.
