Weekend in Pictures: Independence Day at Thousand Hills

With the 4th of July being on a Thursday this year, we celebrated Independence day a couple days late by heading to Branson for a weekend at Thousand Hills Condos. It was perfect besides the air conditioning going out!  But we made due through the heat with box fans and a nice swimming pool. We spent most of the time there in the awesome back patio that overlooked the golf course. It had a nice breeze and was a perfect napping spot. Sawyer spent the majority of the weekend shirtless to stay cool. Saturday, we took Sawyer on the Branson Scenic Railroad with my parents and John's mom and step-dad. He enjoyed looking out at the scenery but about half way through the 1 hr. 45 min. ride, him and daddy zonked out. Saturday night, Auntie Amie got to join us at the Wheelhouse Catfish & Wings Sports Bar for dinner and to watch their band. Sawyer loved it so much, he fell asleep again! We headed home late sunday after some shopping. We were pretty surprised to find out that Sawyer's ear infection came back, he had trouble sleeping Friday night at the condo and then was pulling on his ear a little but besides that, acted totally normal. We went ahead and took him to the doc Monday and they put him back on antibiotics. Poor little guy, he was quite the trooper.

Shirtless was the best way to go for the boys!
