We haven't taken a family vacation for a LONG time, so we decided to go to Branson this past weekend! We had a BLAST!!! Although we were a little worried about Gage+the long car ride, we packed up the good ole van and headed south. Gage did really well and Conner had so much fun everywhere we went...I think the vacation was mainly pointed toward things Conner liked to do and things Gage liked watching Conner do. (That is basically how we spend every day...Conner being busy and Gage watching wishing he could do the things his big brother does.) Don't grow up too fast, Gage!! Here are so pics of our fun trip:
Picking out the very best pumpkin with Dad
One of my favorite pumpkins!
...And the other one!
Riding on the hayrack ride...Conner was super excited that we rode behind an Allis Chalmers tractor...he couldn't wait to get back home to tell Grandpa!
My sweet, happy boy
Waving from the TALL, TALL slide!
I must say, out of all the fun stuff we did and all the places we have gone, my favorite moments are moments like these. The moments where you stop after a long day, lay down on an unmade, messy hotel bed and watch your little ones play together...no toys, no fancy distractions, just the two of them having fun together. I also love how Gage had to crank his neck way around just to watch what Conner is doing. (after these pictures i did turn him around so he could see conner better...i'm not a mean mom!!)
