I'm back.

We snuck away for the weekend. Went to Missouri.
And Silver Dollar City. Again.
It's nice having season passes!



More Beki's than there should ever be in one room.







It was cold. But with gloves and hot chocolate, we made it.



We went to Lambert's for dinner one night and ran into my good friend from here in town!
I always tease her that I stalk her, so it was ironic to see her family there.
Great food. Ate too much.
Probably gained about 4 pounds.

How was your weekend? What did you do?

LOVE the photos! I can't wait to take my hubby there! He's never been. I grew up going there, but haven't been since 2002. We're hoping to go next Spring.

We went to a place out here called "Apple Hill" this weekend. There are LOADS of apple farms out there, as well as wineries, juice bottling companies, and Christmas tree farms. SO much fun and SO cool! We got to pick some Golden Delicious apples. I could seriously live in that kind of area....be it here or in Missouri (Ozarks)!

Oh, and Friday night, we went to the homecoming football game for our son's school. It was fun, esp. since they won! All in all, a very good weekend. Spent the day with in-laws yesterday.

I wish I had pictures from my weekend! My friends do, so maybe I can steal them and do a picturey post.

I went bowling with my sunday school class - it was uber coolness, because my FAVORITE girls from church were there AND my FAVORITE girlfriends that aren't from church came with me. It was like... super-friend-euphoria.

Even though my best score was 78 and I dropped a bowling ball twice.

LOL

And then church and choir practice sunday was super fun, too. I had a fantastic weekend.

your kids are gorgeous. :) And so are you.

i blogged it...and let the pictures speak for themselves :)
(i have been DYING to take beach pictures of my kids! finally!)

Snowcatcher said...

Incredible pictures, as always. That hawk shot, holy smokes!!! That's fabulous!

We had incredible weather over the weekend so took a 52-mile bike ride after buying a used dining room set and turning everything upside down for hours after we glued felt to the bottoms of the legs. It's our first dining room table as a couple, and my husband's first dining room table ever. You know how bachelors eat!!!

The Flying Bee said...

Looks like a good time. I went on a great trip to spend time with a friend and then we hit up a ton of flea markets.

Happy Monday!

Looks like SO much fun, and I'm incredibly jealous, because it was over 100 degrees here on Saturday, and I was doing a craft fair.

Christina said...

Looks like you guys had fun.
We made a crazy, hare-brained (hair-brained?), last-minute, overnight trip to Houston (from Dallas) to see the Terra Cotta soldiers that are touring from China. It sounds like a band when I put it that way. Ha, ha. Google it, it you don't know about them...very cool.

Cristy said...

It was fun to run into you. I always thought you stalked me....now I know for sure. ;)
