Branson, Part 1 (Fun with Family!)

As I mentioned in a previous post, Justin, Elias, and I spent 5 days in Branson with Justin's parents a couple weeks ago. We celebrated our Christmas together and also just enjoyed being on vacation together! I'll take a few posts to document our time together.

Being the pathetic photographer that I am, we don't have a SINGLE group photo that contains all of us! This is the best I got at IHOP right before we headed home!We had such a good time together! We rented a 2-bedroom suite at the Marriott Willow Ridge Lodge, and this place was unbelievable. I'll do a whole post about all the fun things we did at the hotel soon. But since we had a shared living space, it was easy and fun to hang out together. We even had a full kitchen so we didn't have to eat out every meal! Elias had fun playing with his Nana and Granddad, and with the toys they brought him from the whole family! Thanks again to all who sent gifts for us!

He loved this Little People Farm.

(Also note the cute new UK shirt he's wearing that Nana and Granddad brought him! Go team!)

Granddad had to take a lot of shots before he captured Elias' face right in the window! Good job, Granddad!Here is Elias modeling the adorable fuzzy footie pajamas that Nana brought him. (Size 3T! My gigantic boy!)It wasn't just toys that Elias was excited about, either. Here is is playing peekaboo with the fleece blanket that Justin's cousin gave us! He's easily amused. :)

It was SUCH a blessing to be able to have this getaway AND spend time with family. We all had a great time and came home feeling refreshed! Thank you, John and JoBeth!
