This past weekend we took a much needed break as a family.  Sometimes you get so busy and preoccupied with keeping up with all the "TO DOS" That you loose track of stopping and breathing.  That's what we found we needed as we took a break this past weekend at "The Chalet's on Tablerock Lake"  Here are a few things we enjoyed.


August 19th-21st, 2011

We had a pretty enjoyable weekend.  It started on Friday.  Here is what Friday consisted of. 

The St. Louis Temple, where I was able to take some pix.  Not the best pix I'm still learning my  camera but they are still okay and it was fun to play. After the pix the our friends were able to go into the temple for the first time.  What a beautiful blessing. Thanks "A" Family we enjoyed every second we spent with your family!!   It was our youngest son's first time to go to the temple.  He definitely enjoyed it. 

Then the Rootbeer Factory!  I didn't get a pix of the huge root beer Float but trust me it was HUGE!
 Yep after the Temple trip we were of course starving.  Getting spiritually fed always leads to feeling very physically Hungry  lol  so we headed to a place our friends suggested.  YUMMMY!  Fritz's Restaurant and Rootbeer Factory.  I was way to hungry to read up on this place but the kids enjoyed watching the root beer machines fill the bottles. And then they enjoyed some of the games in the game room upstairs.  

Then off to the St. Louis Zoo! After feeding time was over we headed to the LONG AWAITED Zoo!  
Of course all of us adults were ready for a nap by now but we sucked it up and joined the fun.  The kids enjoyed the zoo and made some great memories.  

Then later in the weekend our youngest Son pulled out his bow for some target practice.  He ended up shooting one of his arrows that was already on the target and split it down the center.  What a great shot!!!!!   We were all impressed and then it hit him.  He was now down 2 arrows.  BUMMMER  :((((

Our Friday Free day was filled with fun.  We enjoyed playing with some of our favorite families at the Republic Aquatics Center In Republic.  Between my friends and myself we took way tooo many pix (if that's possible)  I just picked a few to share.  We had a blast.  Thanks O and B families for all the good memories made on Friday. Hope your family's had as much or more fun than ours did.

So I didn't have my computer all last week due to my wonderful husband needing it for work.  I now have it back and can update our Campout pix.  Here is what we did that HOT weekend during July 7th-11th.  ;) And it was very HOT!!!
