Last week I took the kids on vacation.... just the three and me.  I have never taken all the kids on a vacation by myself before.  I usually take my mom along for some help and relief, but this year I figured A was big enough to help out and B and C were big enough to listen and not need to be carried everywhere and everyone is potty trained (haha)
We had a great time in Branson, MO.  The six hour trip down there was easy, no major problems or delays.  We stayed in a nice hotel right on the strip with two pools.  The kids got to swim every day, although we chose the indoor pool since at the outdoor pool Ben got about 20 bug bites.  By the day we left, they were jumping in over their heads.  We went to Silver Dollar City and the Dixie Stampede and every place else we could think of. 

On the day before we left, we headed up to Nixa, MO to see my dear friend Kristi and her family.  I haven't seen Kristi in about 15 years.  What fun to be with someone like you never left them.  We are kindred spirits she and I. :0)  The kids had fun just playing in the park even though it was ridiculously hot.  This vacation went so well, I may take them on another one next year.
