A Hillbilly Vacation

This week we’re on vacation with my family in Branson, Missouri!

Some very generous supporters of my parents loaned us their condo. Branson may be a little kitschy, but there’s some good shopping at the Tanger Outlet stores, the Branson Landing pictured above, and lots of flea markets (more to come on those purchases later), beautiful views of the Ozarks and Table Rock Lake, and good clean family fun. Plus it’s close to Northwest Arkansas and Little Rock so between a short drive and free lodging, it’s a pretty affordable vacation! (so we can spend our money on more house stuff! Hehe.)

We’re spending most of our time at the condo swimming, eating lots of food, playing games, and staring at the baby.

Here’s me and my wonderful sister. <3

And my sister and mom.

Avelea even had her first swim the other day! She was a natural!

We’re still taking part in a few of the Branson activities like go-karting (and shopping, of course). Andrew got the slow car and lost. But he was a good sport and seemed to have a good time anyway. 🙂

We might even be having a Bayer Family Olympics, Boys vs. Girls, with competitions ranging from a Walmart scavenger hunt to putting to nail painting. Nothing like some free, creative family activities.
