Last weekend Brian and Kristi hosted a wonderful family get-away at a beautiful resort in Arkansas. We had so much fun being together!
Here's the crew L to R: Kenny, Gretchen, Kyle, Me, Haley, Kristi, Brian, Connor, Renee and David.
It was hot, hot, hot outside, so we had perfect weather for all sorts of water activities! The resort had a really neat pool that we all checked out one evening.
We liked how they incorporated the natural surroundings into their design.
Kyle doing water aerobics with his niece . . . literally.
The whole area was SO pretty.
We ate all sorts of yummy dishes during dinner together.
Best friends Morgan and Haley.
The most entertaining dish we tried - a flaming banana dessert! Food and fire, what could be better?
David and Renee. David provided the best dinner music (and dinner laughs!) with his famous spoon playing abilities.
Kristi, Connor and Brian.
Brothers Kyle and Kenny.
We also went out boating and tubeing. Here we are, ready to got with David in his "rickshaw".
The brave tube-ers and the lazy pontoon-ers.
Most of us swam over to the speed boat at least once for a little "speed fix"!
The water was great (warmer than the cold pool) and an occasional dip kept us comfy.
Kyle and I in the water, while David pulls his dead fish routine.
Gretchen took a lot of these pictures - thanks Gretchen!
Towards the end of the day, I got the opportunity to drive. I didn't crash, flip us, or make anyone sick. At least, not any sicker than they already were. (Just joking, everyone did fine!)
After snapping pictures for a couple minutes, Gretchen asked if there was any other spot we wanted to try. Kyle suggested over by a little tiny plant growing beside the path. So, we took a picture there, and here it is.
Thanks all for the fun of your company, and Brian and Kristi for a wonderful time! We're looking forward to the next gathering. :-)
