Last Thursday morning we picked up our daughter Lisa and her husband Brad, and daughter Bailey, and we headed to Branson Missouri in our minivan.
We had all been dying for a little get away...and some cooler weather somewhere!
We all love Branson, and the hills and trees, and the lake...as well as Silver Dollar City Amusement Park.
We also enjoy the fun mini golf courses in Branson. This one was especially fun!
Grandma got a hole in one! And then Bailey accidentally knocked my ball with hers and I got another hole in one. (smile) But Lisa got two hole in ones all on her own! (smile)
Silver Dollar City has a waterfall and we all posed for pictures in front of it and then ate lunch right there so we could enjoy it!
We enjoy the shopping at Branson Landing...and the Dancing Waters Fire and Light Show!
They had a free concert that evening. We saw The Mark Chapman Band...and they were really good! I loved their song called "Fireflies".
You can walk along the river there too, and enjoy the scenery.
Lots of restaurants too, or you can take a boat ride.
I took a picture of King Kong outside the Hollywood Wax Museum as we drove by!
I like to eat at Ruby Tuesdays while we are there. They have yummy Strawberry lemonade!
Lisa and I went into a shop in Branson called...Dressin Gaudy! We both got cool necklaces and earrings!
We had a relaxing stay...and our condo was comfortable. They had a pool there and Bailey girl went swimming. Brad got sick, so we let him rest and recover, and the rest of us went to the Imax theater. We saw... Born to Be Wild...it was a story of people who help raise orphaned wildlife until they can be released in the wild again. I loved the huge screen!
We loaded up and headed home on Sunday. Only a couple of stops along the way home. It is about a 6 hour trip!
God was good to give us our little get away trip, and He gave us safety and many blessings together. Brad is over his tummy bug...and all is well! (smile)
Here is a link to The Mark Chapman Band
This song is called..."Where would you go if you couldn't go home?" And it is about tornado victims. It mentions Joplin Mo. and it shows some of the devastation. We saw some of it as we drove through Joplin on our trip. So sad!
