vacation home that was simply gorgeous. I really loved the decorations in the house and it was extremely large, which was perfect for our entire family!
On Friday evening we arrived and talked and snacked. On Saturday, my brother-in-law, sister-in-law, and I went on a run together. I was pretty apprehensive about running with other people because I do not consider myself to be a very fast runner, but everything was fine (if I did hold you guys back, I'm sorry)! We then played Trivial Pursuit, which was fun, and then we went out to eat dinner at "The World's Best Pizza Place" (located in Stockton, Missouri...who knew?!) and went to mass.
We ended up going to mass in El Dorado Springs, Missouri and after church we visited the city park to get a taste of the mineral spring water:
After that, we went back to the house and made s'mores (we had a fire pit there and my other brother-in-law had the brilliant idea to buy s'more fixings for us!). Finally, to cap off the day, we sang "Happy Birthday" to my father-in-law, whose birthday was yesterday.
Overall it was a really fun getaway! The area is really pretty down near Stockton and I think we all enjoyed spending some quality time together!
