Laura Ingalls Wilder Historic Home

The Laura Ingalls Wilder Historic Home and Museum in Mansfield, Missouri is generously sharing a special gift with the Inland Empire. On May 30th and 31st, Rileys at Los Rios Rancho will host the museum’s traveling Laura Ingalls Wilder, Journey of a Pioneer Family exhibit. Rarely seen outside of Missouri, the exhibit contains photographs and information relating to Mrs. Wilder, her famous Little House books and Americas westward expansion. The exhibit will be open to the public 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. in the Los Rios Rancho packing shed. Admission and parking is free. Along with the museum exhibit, there will be a pioneer wagon and schoolhouse display, and special horse-drawn wagon rides. Children can try on clothing of the “Little House” period and try their hands at butter churning and other pioneer crafts and games. The bakery, BBQ, picnic grounds and wildlands trails at Los Rios Rancho will be open both days from 10a.m. – 5 p.m. The bakery will be featuring cider floats and apple hand pies.

Mothers Day Wish from Uncle Jake

On this Mother’s Day
I wish you endless joy and bubbly laughter too
I wish that smiley smiles and giggly giggles
Wrap around and envelop you

I also wish
That all around the world
The air will fill with happy, “love you” songs
From every little boy and girl

For, you are the maternal vessel of life
You are our comforting protector and forever friend
You are the Mother of all of our tomorrows
And your love has no end

So, I wish that on this Mother’s Day
You are spoiled and pampered in every way
Then, please take a moment
Just to be with you, yourself and you
Give yourself a hug ‘n’ smile
And maybe shed a happy tear or a few
Sing a song, do a dance or anything you wish to do

This is your day–so in every way–
Please have a HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY
