Missouri Memories

Who doesn't love a group of teen-aged kids, and Dennis with fake smokes!

How about fake snakes at the Five and Dime Store?

 Maybe you like children driving very expensive boats at the Bass Pro Shop

 A visit to the movies is a great way to cool off on a super hot Missouri day!

Allowing your 15 year old to drive you around the resort is 
just the thing you must do to procure a relaxing vacation.

I personally loved spending time with our dear friends the Clements.
Here we are Jodi and Jodie! 

Perhaps you'd like to dine out on vacation.
Try the Rib Crib.

 Or the restaurant that has a giant chicken out front and looks like a barn.

Fishing Fun

Enjoying my Diet Pepsi with Lime on the raft while the boys fish

 Just Kiddin!  ..... or was he?

 Perhaps scaling rock walls and jumping into the lake is more to your liking
Allow Carlos and Logan to demonstrate

And here goes Dennis

Carlos learning to dive

 Great job Carlos!

MORE photos from the BIG CLIFF coming soon!
Check back!

AND, don't forget to leave a comment that you were here!

Branson MO Here we come!

 Hello blog.  I've neglected you for some time now.  Summer has been busy.  A little football, a little vacation, a little friend time, a little photography time and more.

Over the 4th of July week we traveled down to Branson Missouri for our annual Lake Vacation.
Here are the boys in the car, 40 miles to go!

Over hills and dells, the lake is getting closer.

There it is!  Table Rock Lake.

Saturday night we checked in, put the boat in and took a sight-seeing ride.  Then we enjoyed the Kimberling City fireworks display from the lake

Tuesday we took a day to visit Branson Landing.  This is the Bass Pro Shop.

Dinner at Famous Dave's BBQ.  AWESOME food and super fast service!!!

More shopping at Branson Landing
Isaiah loves Nerds Candy.
We found lots of giant candy in this candy store.

Mamma LOVES Peanut M&M's!!


My favorite hat.  I did not buy it and really wish I would have.  Maybe I'll find another some day.

Holy Giant Motor Batman!!!

More to come!  Check back in!
