Branson vacation!

It has been a really long time since I blogged. We were on vacation and believe it or not, there was no internet available at the condo that we stayed at in Branson! Me, a whole week, with no internet, now that is kinda a big deal! Every single little ratty hotel we drove past said "Free WiFi", but the very nice condo we were in, NO INTERNET. "Unbelievable!", as Johnny would say. I did okay without it though, but it was mostly because the preggo sleepyness and lousy feeling kicked in last week, and I was pretty much consumed by that! We did have a good time, but I just felt bad, and then good, and then bad, and then good everyday of the whole week. Branson is all hilly and every time we got in the car I felt bad. I took a nap when Ava did every afternoon! I did finish editing a wedding and an engagement session, which I will post some pics of later, but I just felt rotten. I felt okay yesterday and Saturday, but today I feel yucky again. I have an engagement session tonight, so I hope it gets better by then!
This is my absolute favorite vacation picture of the girls:
They look so happy riding this little ride! They had a great time on vacation. They got to do lots of fun stuff, like riding lots of kiddie rides,
(what a nice Daddy! Preggo Mommy couldn't even dream of getting on any spinny little rides!)
riding ponies,
(I look so pregnant in that shirt! I actually had to go to the bathroom in an outhouse at this place where the girls rode horses. An outhouse! It's 2007, and I had to go in an actual OUTHOUSE!)

(she's such a pro. Look how she handles that putter, swinging backwards with her left hand! ha ha!)
bumper boats,


seeing Fireworks,

going to the Baldknobbers show,

(Maddie Kate liked that better than Ava! Ava said "The funny guys are scary!" as you can tell by her face in the pictures! By the way, isn't the guy with his lip up over his nose the weirdest thing ever?!)

and Maddie Kate got to go to Silver Dollar City with her buddy Sydney, who just happened to be on vacation in Branson at the same time we were, so they went together and had a blast.
That's it for now. I will post some JHP pics later. I think I'm going to go take a nap!



  1. Congratulations!!! I bet the Branson trip was hard on your stomach. I can't wait to see some new wedding pics. The pics from your latest engagement session look great. Sarah Z

  2. I love the vacation pictures! I'm with Ava on that Baldknobber guy! That is disturbing and just plain wrong! The fireworks pics turned out so neat! I hope you're having a good day!


  3. Have you ever been to Branson resort? If not, then you need to check it out! That place has everything for your family needs!

  4. Oh man! I'm going to have to check which one of the Branson hotels has internet then!
