Spencer and I decided in an effort to save money that we would take a few weekend vacations to places close by this year. We have been to Big Cedar several times and never tire of the place and the boys love it as much as we do.
They offer a lot of outdoor activities like swimming, boating, fishing, horse back-riding, hiking etc...because of the cold weather we swam in the indoor pool and played games and watched movies. Which was perfect!
For lunch we went to Devil's Pool Restaurant. Isn't it funny how after you have kids your expectations change? The things that I liked best about the Restaurant were the speedy service, the waitress brought kids cups with lids and she talked to the boys as well as us. :)
Devil's Pool is decorated to look like an old rustic lodge much like the rest of Big Cedar. We sat by a big fire place and had a view of the Ozark Mountains and Table Rock Lake.
I ordered a salad with grilled salmon and Spencer got the wild mushroom pasta, both of which we so good that we forgot to take a picture!
We are already talking about when we can go back! As much as I love my boys I'm ready for an adult weekend out...maybe in April or May. :)
Question of the Day:
Where is your favorite place to vacation? Do you like to take small weekend trips? Do you vacation without the kids?
