Many years ago
in a land far away
lived a dashing young gentleman
and a fair young maiden...........
Oh wait! That's another story.
This is our story. Don & I have been married for 50 years now and a couple of weeks ago we celebrated with every member of our kids, grands and greats.
The most wonderful week ever started with our son & his family & both of us traveling together to Joplin to join the rest of the family.
From there we all drove to Still Water's Resort on Table Rock Lake near Branson, Mo for a three night, 4 day stay. What an absolutely wonderful time we all had together.
This is where we stopped for lunch that first day. It was quaint and happy and fun and we filled every table but one. After we were finished eating the owner brought out New Orleans beads and gave us all a necklace! She gave me a 'special' one since we were celebrating. hahaha Love it!
I'll share just a few more pics and I hope I don't bore you to death.
This is all of us girls on our way to shop at Branson one afternoon. I had just purchased the scooter right before we came on this trip because I knew I would be totally miserable if I tried to walk very far at all. It was such a relief to be able to have fun and be with my girls for as long as they could keep going.
Aren't my girls just gorgeous?
Early morning coffee time
That's my boy.....working hard cooking our food.
our bunch enjoying the kayaks and the lake.
having fun in one of the pools.
Jessi planned a craft night for the grands and greats each night.
And our nights were spent at the horseshoe pit until we couldn't see any longer.
One of the beautiful sunsets.
When our stay here was over we spent a day at Silver Dollar City and then headed back to Joplin for a few more days.
What a wonderful week we had.
What a wonderful family we have!!
