Day 32 – Toto, We’re Not In Kansas Anymore…Oh Wait, My Bad, We Are…
Predictably, as a young girl I gravitated to things that had strong female leads, therefore my love of ‘Alice in Wonderland’ was a given, maybe a little less obvious was ‘Grease’ – who didn’t love when Olivia Newton-John became a blonde badass?! – but the other big one was always ‘The Wizard of Oz’. So, when I discovered there was an Oz Museum there was no way I wasn’t going to put it on the itinerary!
Trying to ignore the thing growing on my arm, we checked out a nearby antique store and actually bought something this time. I discovered a cute little framed picture of Bambi and, following on from reliving my youth through the Wizard of Oz, I just had to have this item because a re-release of Bambi was the first movie I saw in the cinema. It must be nostalgia day!
For dinner we headed over to an old favourite of ours, Cracker Barrel. Strangely this is becoming mine and Joe’s favourite restaurant and it was definitely one of the best meals of the trip – if not the best! It’s like eating at home without having to do all the work!
Back at the hotel Joe modelled his purchase of the day, an 80’s style sweatshirt he got at the museum…I think he’s trying to bring the look back...please nobody encourage this!
