Vacation Time

Our family didn't take a big vacation this summer. And since next week at school the kids have short days and Friday off, we thought it would be a good time to ditch the routine. Tomorrow morning we fly to Branson, Missouri and meet up with my husband's parents from Iowa.

Now I know what you're thinking. Branson? Really? None of us are big country music fans, so believe me, that was not the draw! We're more excited about the fact that Branson has lots of lakes and rivers to enjoy, and that it's close to Arkansas, Oklahoma, Tennesse, Kentucky, Illinois and Kansas. We could visit 7 states in less time than it takes to drive the California coastline! Of course we have to try!

As a result, I won't be blogging next week. (Yes, I'm sad about it too.) But before I go, I wanted to leave you with some great links and pick the winner of And Tango Makes Three. First, the winner (drum roll please!)





Congratulations ladies! Email me an address and I'll send you the book when I get home from Branson! Don't forget to let me know who you pass it on to when you're done :D

As for the links, I have two fun ones:


Have a great week everyone!

Our summer vacation was to Branson. We had a blast. We were on the lake, at the Titantic exhibit, at Silver Dollar City. You will have so much fun. You will be missed, but have a great time! If you happen to venture on over to Kansas, let me know. :)

While I've never been, my folks loved Branson so much they were considering moving to Springfield. They kept finding houses in flood plains which is my mom's specialty.

Hope you have a great time!

Whoo hoo! Um, LiLa is us, right? Just want to make sure you don't have an actual friend name Lila because that would be embarrassing.

Have a great time on vacay! Can't wait to hear if you make it to all 7 states!
