Anyway, we headed out yesterday morning to the Moon Marble Factory in Bonner Springs, KS (a place not in the book but it started us off). This is a great place to visit because it's free, houses one of the best toy stores I have ever seen (not huge but great variety of classics and bizarre offerings) and is in the business of keeping an old world trade and game alive. Bruce, the demonstrator, is not only a great marble craftsman but also the owner. It's worth the drive.

After that we headed off to the Holy-Field Winery, which in the Day Trips book boasted 10 varietals. It was a quaint vineyard with a storefront that had tastings, so we partook in that. We purchased a bottle of their driest red - a Chambourcin. The best part about the winery is that they let people help harvest grapes every late summer/fall - the only drawback is that they only do it on Sunday mornings.
After that we decided that our trip needed one more stop to wrap it up and we headed to the Grinter House - a historic mansion that was built by a couple in the 1850's. The site marks the first ferry crossing on the Kansas River (all 100 feet of it).
