The kids and I headed to Branson yesterday to hang out and see family. Sean was not able to come this time around because of work commitments and clients coming into town, so we are missing him.
Yesterday the drive went well. I was hoping to make it in less than 10 hours and it only took 9...woot!!
The kids were bouncing off the walls when we got here. We headed out for dinner, drove around town, and then hit the pool for the rest of the evening.
Today we had a busy day. We woke up and headed to the beach first thing.
We then swam at the pool and ordered pizza.
After lunch we headed to the Landing and rode the ducks. I had reserved seats for the 3pm ride, however we happened to get there early so they switched us...thank goodness because by the time our ride was over it was pouring.
All of our kids except Wes got to drive the boat. He wasn't interested until right before the guide pulled the boat in the water so it was too late.
Wes took a nap after a while.
We toured the College of the Ozarks where my niece TP goes.
After we rode the ducks we had dinner at the ice cream place. The kids were excited about that. Of course I was only 1/2 serious about it being dinner. They are now munching on leftover bagels from yesterdays breakfast. Eating out for lunches and dinners are pricey!
We then visited the fish hatchery, the dam, and went on a hike.
One child neglected to bring his shoes and we were eaten alive by mosquitos! Still very nice though!
Fun day! Can't wait to see what tomorrow holds! Silver Dollar City...here we come!!
