Big Cedar Lodge 2014

It blows my mind that today is July 1st.  Seriously people, if this were winter, it would still be January 2nd.  Not fair how fast summer goes by!!  Every summer the whole Austin fam travels up to Missouri to stay at Big Cedar Lodge, pick up the nieces from Kanukuk and have some major fun playing on Table Rock Lake.  This year was no different, we had a blast.  The pictures speak for themselves!
All packed up and ready to roll!

The car ride is long.

We always stay the first night in Fayettville,AR and go to dinner and play putt putt with just our little fam of four.

The next morning we arrived!  Ahh, I love seeing that sign!

Lunch at Truman's Cottage

Once we moved into our cabin, it was time to play more putt putt!

This little one enjoyed the view of the waterfall.

Dinner at Devil's Pool while everyone was a camp.

Two tired kiddos!  Camp doesn't quite work for us yet…early bed timers!

Our view at dinner.

Someone I know needs to get married in this chapel at Big Cedar…Lindsey Buck, hint hint!  ;)
It's SO beautiful!!

Sydney and Nana watching the boys golf.
This particular morning was "cool", hence the jacket on Nana.  We had a very random cool front blow through.

Just basking in the sun on the course.

All dressed up for dinner at Top of the Rock.

On the lake!  
Happy Father's Day to the best husband and daddy!!

Taking in the views on my last run before leaving.

Like I said before…someone I know needs to get married here and invite me to the wedding!  ;)  
I can't take the beauty!!

Until next year Big Cedar!!
