Eureka Springs Vacation

We left last Friday morning and headed up to Eureka Springs to stay in a cabin on Beaver Lake with my parents and sister and Reese. We got there around lunch time and ate at the Rowdy Beaver. Then we went to our cabin and unloaded the cars. The cabin was gorgeous! It was 2 story with a balcony and a wonderful view of the lake. We loaded back up and went to Walmart and got stuff for supper that night and breakfast and lunch for the weekend. When we got back Chris and I cooked supper for everyone. He grilled raspberry chipotle pork loin and I cooked fried rice, broccoli with cheese, and crescent rounds. It was fun relaxing and spending time with everyone. The kids were so funny. That evening right before it got dark we saw a couple of deer in our backyard. They were so cute. They were so close, it was crazy! There was a huge jacuzzi that the kids(and us girls) loved. I woke up around 4 or so in the morning and there were 4 deer outside! My mom was feeding them bread and they walked right up to the back porch. Mom didn't sleep well that night and she said the deer were out there all night eating. That morning mom made gravy and biscuits(my favorite) and eggs, and bacon. It was so good. Then we all loaded up and went fishing. We had so much fun! Blake caught his 1st fish. He was so excited. After fishing we went back to the cabin and had lunch then got ready and went on a boat tour, called The Belle of the Ozarks. The hostess on the boat let Haley and Blake use some binoculars. Blake pretended he was a pirate. After the cruise we went and ate all you can eat catfish and shrimp at Angler's Grill. It was good. Blake loves catfish. We got back to the cabin and mom and dad were nice enough to watch the kids while me, Ashley, and Chris went to fish again. After we got back we listened to the Razorbacks barely win. We got up Sunday morning and mom cooked a big breakfast again(with homemade hashbrowns this time). We checked out and Chris and I took the kids to Berryville to Cosmic Caverns. The kids got to pan for gems and explore the cave. We finally got home about 8:30 tonight and are all exhausted. We had a great weekend and all wished we could have stayed longer!
