Vacation Part 1

Last month we packed up the car and headed to Branson, MO! It was quite a drive, but we have tons of audio books, coloring, and snacks to keep the boys happy.

When I was little, my family went to MO. The thing I remember most was the drive there. My dad is a back roads off the map type of man, and it really was the most gorgeous drive ever. So that's the way we went.

We went through the sweetest town in Arkansas. Eureka Springs. If I didn't have such antsy boys, I would have loved to explore the whole town!

We did get to stop in and see the Thorncrown Chapel. Made of glass! I had been in it when I was a little girl. It sure is a stunning place.

On our way out of town, we stopped at one more place just to take in all the beauty.

And this beauty was amazing to sit and watch!
The Pileated Woodpecker

We spent our days exploring and swimming! It was low key and very fun.
Jaiden sure had his moments though ;)

Brighton is terrified of heights and didn't want to join us climbing this wood tower. Its melted my heart to see Tristin encouraging him to do it. He helped him all the way to the top!

What a fun time! I used to work at a summer camp in Branson. Two of the best summers of my life!
