Our Vacation

We took a vacation this past week to the Ozarks with my parents, my sisters and my grandma farmer.  It was everything a vacation to the Lake should be - sunny days for swimming, tubing and skiing; raining days for games and movies, and too much good food!

The first few days we were there with just half of the crew.  With slower days we got to relax a lot which was really nice.  The best part about it is that during the relaxing times Owen and Eden had their first wrestling sessions!  There was mostly a lot of laughing.  But we do have some training sessions ahead of us to teach that if someone is crying they don't like it.  But Jon and I loved watching them wrestle and play together.

I tried to upload a video but it didn't work.  Any tips anyone? We took the video using our iPhone.

Our other proud accomplishment was we got BOTH kids on the tube.  Owen was a little hesitant at first but once the boat started moving they each were laughing.  Eden especially loved it.  They both also loved the rocky beach.  Next summer the goal will be to get them to like being where they can't touch the ground.  They both cried a lot at the deeper part even though Jon and I were holding them.  Oh well - we've got time!  Also a plus, neither of them complained about their life jackets!

This was their favorite thing to do on the boat - take all of the snacks out of the snack bucket.
Mandy and Sandy - If you didn't notice, I was really bad at taking pictures, meaning I didn't take many.  If you guys have some good ones please send them my way! (Especially a few with Mandy in them because I don't have any.)


  1. Hey Jenny -
    Adam has taken videos with his iphone before and he puts them up on youtube. Apparently that is one of the options on the iphone when you take a video. Once it is on youtube it might take a little while for the search to update but then you can easily upload it to your blog. I did it pretty recently. Hope that helps :)

  2. if the video is long, iPhone's use 1080 and will go over the 100 mb limit on blogger. blogger, doesn't really allow for high def videos. you can use iMovie and save it under a lesser quality and maybe that'll do the trick. Good luck!
