From Relaxation to....red noses!

Now...that is relaxing! This was the view from our condo we stayed in this weekend in Branson. It was FABULOUS!! You can go here to check it out! We had such an awesome weekend, it was so nice to get away for a few days with a few of our favorite couples, no kids and just take it easy! Here are a bunch of no kids pictures =)...

Friday night - Out to dinner!!
Saturday - The guys and girls split - Guys went golfing, Ladies went shopping and lunched...few of my favorite things!! We even worked in a manicure...

Chad, Shane, Justin, and Bentley
The ladies before shopping (Tracy, Me, Jennifer, Nancee, and Dina)Lunching! I bought a fabulous red coat and a short black coat...I heart coats and that made my weekend!!!!My Shane! I sent my camera with the boys and made them take some pictures...they did good!!Shane and ChadJustin being silly...and the random guy "Mike" that got put in their foursome =).I love this picture of Chad =). Shane golfing...We came back together that night for grilled burgers and to surprise Jennifer for her birthday with a yummy carrot cake from Rick's!! Happy Birthday Jennifer!! You are one of three of the best sister in laws a girl could ask for!! You and Chad are such great role models for all of us!! I love you and I am so glad that we are family!!! Birthday girl Jennifer and Tracy! Me and Tracy!Sunday morning - We went to Brunch at Big Cedar Lodge and it was gorgeous!! So we took some last minute shots before heading back to reality =).

Chad and JenniferJustin and TracyBentley and DinaChad and NanceeMe and ShaneThe Browns!! Now, when we left if you remember, O and Claire bear were a little under the weather, but the greatest in laws ever (YOU ROCK NANA AND PAPA!!!) insisted we go and they would manage! The kids were still sick when we got back...and we were too! We both woke up Sunday morning with the kids' colds =(! So it is a little blah here at the Browns...we did not even get a tutu shot this morning as Claire did not go to dance. But hopefully we are okay tomorrow and we will get a first ever school field trip shot of her (say a small prayer for her and me too that she is well tomorrow, she will be officially over the edge of this sick thing if she cannot go to school =))

Hope you had a great week and take your Zinc and Vitamin C - YOU DO NOT WANT THIS COLD!!

That looks like so much fun. The condo looks gorgeous. I'm glad you had fun...sometimes the best things we parents can do for our children is to take some time for ourselves.

I'm with Tara. I can't believe the guys actually took good pictures. I am shocked! Looks like you guys had a much needed, really fun trip. I hope everyone gets to feeling better soon.

Too late - we all have it too!!! BLAH!!! I think mine started out as allergies and then because I couldn't take anything for three days in preparation for my allergy test that I'm having done today at the clinic, it's turned into a full blown cold. It's miserable!! Hope you guys feel better soon!

Looks like you guys had a fab time!! After this week with Jonah, I am ready to GO OUT OF TOWN myself. LOL And it's only Tuesday.

Carolyn said...
