Our family spent an extended weekend with the Jones family at Big Cedar Lodge near Branson the weekend of Fourth of July. We've known the Jones family since both our daughters were born and have been friends since. The children are close in age and the adults share Coleman history so it's never a dull moment. We had a wonderful time relaxing and playing.
Boys playing checkers.
Sweet girls at dinner. We ate on sight at the restaurants all but one evening. They were fabulous!
Picture of the governors suite that we shared. It was amazing.
Kiddos tie-dying tshirts. There were lots of fun activities to do besides swimming, mini golf and a lazy river.
We rented a boat one day and spent several hours on Table Rock Lake. The kids enjoyed swimming and sunning.
The whole family and the dog loaded up to visit the family in Kansas. We spent several days with Gram and Poppy and then several days with Nana and Papa. Of course all the cousins were present and played with at both places! We had tons of fun and are planning another trip before school starts!

Lunch with neighbor friends before bowling.
Claire's dance company competed in nationals this year in Texas. The original plan was for the whole family to attend and have some vacation time. But after Landon making the All Star baseball team, our family had to divide and conquer. On a side note, although this made us sad, we are so proud and happy to have children dedicated to activities that they love enough to warrant this type of division. Claire's dances did well at nationals, and our girl trip was lots of fun, including shopping, swimming and dinners with friends.
Landon's baseball season was extended this year as he was chosen to participate on the All Star team. He enjoyed getting to play in a tournament and hone his skills for a little longer. Since mommy was with Claire in Texas for dance, pictures of the All Star games are scarce. But we are so proud of him for his hard work and dedication! The pictures below are from the end of his regular season with the A's.
