A Weekend in Missouri

This past weekend, 4/5 of the Landis family reunited with the other 1/5. Although I wish we could have spent more time laughing and jumping through the streets together, I am glad we were able to spend a day with the boy who chased after his dreams back in August. I decided to post a few photos from the trip and show our adventure through the campus because Missouri is far too beautiful to not applaud. I hope you enjoy!

I felt as if each part of campus was worthy of a thousand pictures.

I took this photo on the lawn in front of Jesse Hall (on the red brick side of campus) at the same spot back in August when we said goodbye to Carter. The building’s beauty only seemed greater as the leaves changes from green to a vibrant yellow and orange.

The most famous and biggest library on campus is called Ellis Library. And although it was surrounded by construction and yellow caution tape, it still reigned of elegance.

I will forever be day dreaming about the J school at Mizzou. So pretty. So so so pretty.

Memorial Union was without a doubt the most beautiful building on campus. Dad laid down on the middle of the sidewalk just to get the perfect angle, but I can’t blame him despite the few judgy stares we got from passing students.

Moments after this photo was taken, Carter made sure to get his comment in about how dumb I was, and reminded me that he was ultimately and in all ways better than me. But what did I expect? The insults will forever fly freely.

The Green Chapel was found in a corner in the white campus (named after the white stoned buildings).  The life and greenery along the buildings made it easy to see why it was Carter’s favorite part of campus.

Mizzou is not really doing too well this season, but at least we won our homecoming game 68-21 against Idaho.  Go Mizzou 😉

My favorite brother walking around his favorite campus. I love and miss you already Carter. See you soon.
