Big Cedar Lodge Trip 2013

We decided to take a little get-a-way before the construction on the house commences, so we decided it would be the perfect time to check out Big Cedar Lodge in Branson. This is only about 2 hours from where we live and we can't believe that we haven't checked it out before now! It is amazing! There is nothing better than just lounging around the pool, looking at beautiful scenery, and eating amazing food while spending all of our time together. No meetings, no phone calls, no emails...just a little relaxation. Awesome.

When we got here we checked out our room and unpacked. Here are the details of our room...

Shortly after we got here Ethan and Brooke came to visit. They live in Springfield so it was just a little ways for them to drive. We hung out for a couple hours before they headed back to Springfield. So fun!
Lexi Belle loved it!

We didn't go out to dinner the first night. Our room had a little kitchenette so we made turkey and avaocado subs and hung out in our room.

The next morning we woke up and had coffee and breakfast out on the balcony. I could get used to this.

After breakfast we headed for a fun day at the pool! This place has some awesome pools. Each one is different so you have a ton of options!

We came back and napped and got ready for dinner!

..and lots of pictures!

...more to come tomorrow!

Tuesday Catch Up!

We have been so crazy lately! Imagine that. We have had all of Robert's family here in the last two weeks and have enjoyed it! With being limited on space, it makes for an "exciting" time when they are all here but we make the most of it!

As for Lexi Belle and the potty training situation...she is ROCKING it! I can't believe how well she is doing! One day we just decided to sit on the potty every 30 minutes or so and wear a pullup. Sure enough she went EVERY time I put her on there and was so proud of herself! We haven't transitioned to panties yet, because we are still having a little trouble "dribbling" in her pullup but oh my lands are we making progress! Thank goodness!

This past weekend we went toe the Knoxville National Races. I had got Robert and Bob tickets for Father's Day because they have said they wanted to go for as long as I can remember but never have. Jeanie and I decided to tag along because let's be honest, could they handle it without us? No.  We had a late night but had a blast!!!

Let's take it back..to the 4th of July

Yeah, that's how long it has been since I have blogged. 

A lot has happened since July. We found out we were expecting...then 2 weeks later found out we had miscarried. It was a tough time and I really didn't know what to say about it...so I just didn't publish it anywhere. We are doing well now and are looking forward to trying for baby #2 again! 

I never posted pictures from our 4th celebration, so I thought I would kick back off on this whole blogging gig with that. I am going to try to keep up now that I am a stay-at-home-mommy (I thought I'd have all this time but seem to still not have any?)!
