Last weekend, our family took our annual trip to Branson. We go this time every year with Steve's parents, his sister and her family. We usually get a 3 bedroom condo at The Thousand Hills Golf Resort so we can be all together & eat most of our meals in. We always celebrate Steve's sister & "M's" birthday there because they both have birthdays in November.
While the grandparents watch the kids and go look for golf balls on the grounds, us parents got to go shopping ;-) Our favorite place to shop is Tanger Outlet Mall although I do like Branson Landing, too.
We went to Silver Dollar City on Saturday and it was SOOOO miserably cold! The kids were very bummed because it was so cold the rides had to be shut down. We got to see some really good shows, though, including Christmas Carol, Frosty the Talking Snowman and The Live Nativity.
We ended our stay at the Grand Village Shops and got to see Santa. Going to Branson this time of the year really puts you in the holiday spirit because the entire town is decked out with Christmas decor & all the shows typically have a Christmas theme. Can't wait to go again next year!
