We left Branson after lunch at Fuddruckers and decided to take a different route home. We drove through Joplin, Missouri to get a first-hand look at the damage that the recent EF5 tornado had done. Honestly, the devastation was amazing. Probably as close to a war-zone as I hope to ever see. It has been more than a month since that area was hit and the clean-up effort is still just starting.
Overall, we had a FANTASTIC vacation and really enjoyed getting to spend some quality time with the Michel and Vanderbeck families!
