Our Fun Trip To Branson Missouri!

From my last post most of you could tell I was feeling a bit low, and not feeling much like blogging.  I just want to thank each of you for the encouraging comments and the love you sent my way.  You are all awesome!

John and I needed a little time away, so we went to Branson, Missouri for five days, and we had a great time.  We had been trying to get there since last spring...but there was always too much going on to prevent us from getting away on a trip.

A picture of us from last Spring


We went to Silver Dollar City, since we have season passes.  I loved being there for the Christmas shows and festivities.



 It's a Wonderful Life!



A Christmas Carol

The Christmas Carol is a favorite of many!

I loved all of the lights and the Christmas decorations, the parade...and the lighting of the huge Christmas Tree!  AND we saw a couple of great shows.  They had "It's a Wonderful Life!"...and "A Christmas Carol."
And my favotite show was at The Sight and Sound Theater in Branson, where we saw the musical production  of "Joseph"...and it was Spectacular!!!! 

Sight and Sound Theater


 I love the statue of the Lion and the Lamb outside of the Theater!




You have got to go see Joseph...it is so good!









It takes us about 6 hours to drive to Branson...(we make a few stops along the way)...so it isn't too bad of a trip.  I left my camera at home, so I got these pictures online.

We also saw a show called..."A Christmas Snow"...and it was on a much smaller scale...but really good too.
If you are needing a little getaway...I think Branson, Missouri is the place to go!  We had a lovely time.  They have lots of good places to eat...and lots of great shopping too.  It is a great getaway for families!

I haven't been to Branson in many years and I know it has changed a lot since I was there. I would love to go back sometime. It looks like you had a great get-away.

I'm so glad you were able to get away and go to Branson. I've not gone there but have been to Carthage and seen the Precious Moments chapel twice. Beautiful at Christmas time. It's alot further for me...lol! I would be sick if I didn't take my camera on a trip...hahaha! Have a good day!

Oh Linda what a wonderful time and a needed break.
I loved Branson when we went there. We had a wonderful time.
Got to see Andy Williams which means even more that he passed.

I saw Joseph in Lancaster Sight and Sound. I thought it was wonderful - I loved the music.

I am so jealous you can get to Branson in 6 hours. LOL

We had to fly to Atlanta then another flight to Branson. Not real easy to get there from NJ hah

Thanks for sharing - so glad it was wonderful !
