We participated in Lutheran VBS week. It was sort of spontaneous decision but the kids all had a great time!
We celebrated my grandparents 60th anniversary...
...and Father's Day at the annual chicken BBQ in town.
Our vacation this year was to Branson, Missouri. Only 5.5 hr drive but tons to do! We picked a little of everything-- we stayed in a little cabin, did Go-Karts, a riverboat cruise, an acrobat show, hiking, fish hatchery, cave exploring, and a couple museums--the Maze of Mirrors and Ripley's Believe it or Not. The favorite activity for all five of us was the Chinese Acrobat show, just incredible and entertaining! Will definitely look for more shows in the future! =) I'll put the picture highlights in a separate post.
Back home the kids and I adventured around Indian Cave State Park. Earlier in the summer we went there to hike but this time we wanted to explore the historical features and just play and read. Had a really pretty spot for an unplanned photo op too. =)
