vacation week

I forgot to say that we were going on vacation.
Or did I?
I can't remember.

Anyway, Christopher and I just got home from a four day vacation across Missouri. It was relaxing as most vacations are, but I have to admit that I was a bit ready to snuggle in to our warm and homey apartment. Minus the spiders.

Originally, we had planned to spend a weekend + Monday and Tuesday floating on the Buffalo River in Arkansas. And then life got crazy and work schedules changed, so we switched to Plan B which was a huge blessing! The Witte Zoo (my aunt, uncle, and cousins) opened up their cabin to us for a few nights, and then we nestled in with my Dad's side of the family for a few nights at the Red House of the Rainbow Trout Ranch in Rockbridge, Missouri.

The first two days with just Chris and I consisted of sleeping anytime, eating deli sandwiches, drinking coffee, watching Inception, reading our favorite books (another story), lake swimming, and sunset watching. Chris also taught me how to dive. Score!

Thank you Witte Zoo!

The last couple days entailed trout fishing (lots of fishing!), trout eating, family rivalry through bananagrams, and oodling over Diesel. I have to say that I caught the second largest fish of all 8 of us, 9 including the Diesonator. A 3.46 lb. beauty, only second to my brother's 3.50 pounder.

I was a little intimidated by it, if you can't tell.

I also took some photos of my pregnant sister and her Sawyer belly for her shower (another story). Those still need some editting though. Next time!
