Osage Beach

We rounded out Jonathan's last week of leave with a short trip to Osage Beach at Lake of the Ozarks. We stay at Tan-Tar-A, a nice little resort right on the water. This trip was more low key as we spent most of our time in the pool, which was great! Cole is quite the fish and Jonathan and I love just soaking up the rays so this worked out well for all of us.

We started our trip off right with a stop by Cold Stone Creamery. Yum!

And since our room was right on the water, we spent alot of time feeding the ducks (and tons of carp too) that always seemed hungry. We went through 4 loaves of bread during our stay.

Having fun!

There were TONS of fish under the ducks fighting for food too!

I won't lie...I enjoyed feeding them as much as Cole! :-)

For breakfast every morning we ate at the Black Bear Lodge, located at the resort. They had a delicious breakfast buffet and we ate way too much. I tried to tell myself we were on vacation and it was okay. :-)

They had a park at the resort too, so we usually went there and played after breakfast.

And of course spent alot of time in the water. Cole loved the slide so went down it no less than 100 times a day! :-) Cole even got brave and went down it a couple times by himself.

Sliding with me. His huge smile says it all!

He even napped by the pool so we got to relax a little.

And we ate some yummy food, like fried pickles at the Happy Fisherman.

Cole thought they were good too!

And a yummy burger and milkshake from Steak 'N Shake.

Cole and I have enjoyed having Jonathan home for two weeks and will be sad to see him go back to work on Monday. But, such is life! We enjoyed Tan-Tar-A so much that we have already booked a room and are heading back for my birthday/Labor Day weekend. Hopefully it will be a great way to end our summer!
