A Mini Vacay

We decided to take a mini vacation to Osage Beach, which was really just an excuse to shop, during the first part of August. The girls got some new clothes, as did Mommy, and Mommy got a little Christmas shopping in. We had a great time. Before we headed home, we stopped by Grand Glaize Beach so the girls could see the lake.

The girls almost always hold hands. This started when Tori was tiny!

On the drive home we stopped at Jefferson City to walk the steps to the Capital. We had been in Jeff City when Emmalee was about 18 months old and have pics of her climbing the steps then. She looked so tiny! I love to visit the Capital, and the girls had a great time as well!

This trip was a lot of fun and hopefully we can make it a tradition!
