The end of September found our family driving 4 hours to Mark Twain State Park in Mo. for a family vacation and get-together with Scott's Mom and nephews. WE drove out Thursday night the 20th and came home that Sunday. It was a really fun and relaxing time. We rented a cabin that was super nice- (the only thing I would change was a bathroom instead of walks to the "shower house", but hey- we were "camping"! :) The boys did great, and we had a wonderful visit with family. Most of the time we spent there at the camp ground. The lake was just 75 yards or so down the hill from us and we enjoyed watching the boats and wildlife. Nick and Bryan were even able to go fishing- Nick caught one fine fish! Sunday we headed into Hannibal and had fun at a family park. There was bumper boats and a radar throw, a bounce house (A great hit with Paul:) and a great game called Water Wars. Basically you sling HUGE water balloons at each other and try to soak the other person. It was great! We had such a good time we are thinking of making it an Anson tradition for a fall trip!
