18 on a family vacation

Eureka Springs, AR ~ Beaver Lake
A log cabin with beautiful views plus 18 family members equals tons of fun!

View from the bedroom window.  Didn't get much sleep, log houses are loud with all the hard surfaces...hmmm or was it the 18 people, probably a little of both.

We cheered the Dallas Mavs during their championship game!  I think they heard us in Dallas.

Three generations! 

We found a boutique winery, enjoyed the wine tasting too.  

I was in charge of packing lunch the day of our boat outing.  This is how everyone had to the eat chicken pasta salad when someone me forgets to pack the forks!  

My brother had his first boat driving experience and first tubing time too.

Good way to get to the boat when there is no dock.

Yes, do I look happy.  All the girls were there, plus Michael and we missed you Sean!  I guess SMU business masters program is important too.

Thorncrown Chapel in the Ozark Mountains just minutes outside of downtown Eureka Springs!

Shopping day and dog petting day. 

It is a cave!  It is supposed to be dark!

Hello life long family memories, Good-bye Arkansas 2011.
