We had a wonderful trip to Branson. It was a little crazy because we went just a week after school got out, but everything turned out great.
We drove down to Kansas to spend a few days with my sister at the beginning of our vacation. We all had fun relaxing, making pasties, and the part the kids like best- playing with their cousins.
We really enjoyed the condo we stayed in. The boys had their own room bedroom and bathroom and we had a nice little kitchenette to eat meals in.
To help cushion the cost of vacation, we did eat at least 2 meals at our condo or bring a prepared picnic along with us. We did find some other really fun places to eat:
Branson is famous for it's shows and so we had to go see for ourselves. We saw
Kirby Van Burch's magic show- we all were amazed
Dolly Parton's Dixie Stampede- this one is dinner and a show- totally worth the money
The Hughes Brothers- an LDS family act- such nice people- we actually stayed and talked to them for a 1/2 hour after the show
The Haygoods- really talented family- the best music show we saw
GAC nights @ Silver Dollar City-
Speaking of Silver Dollar City- we spent 2 days there and had a blast!
We rode rides
One time where we should have taken them up on their photo
And walked through Marvel Cave
We spent a day at White Water
We rode the ducks- one of my favorite things that we did on our trip
We rode the go carts
With all the coming and going we made sure to relax as well-
there were bubble baths
the boys golfed
while the girls got pedicures- it was Genna's first, she loved it!
I even managed to do a puzzle and read 4 books.
Branson is a gorgeous place-
Lake Taneycomo- we drove over this everyday to get into town
Table Rock Lake
I'm sure we'll go back soon.
