Branson Trip for the Weekend

We had a great time in Branson this past weekend with Steve's family. We go together every year and have so much fun. Typically, we stay at the condos at Thousand Hills but they were totally booked so we stayed at a new place, The Majestic, which was on Table Rock Lake. We really liked it there, too, and I'm sure we'll go back.

Here's a few pics from our stay...


"A" is turning 8 in a few weeks so we had a little family celebration for her while we were there. We also celebrated birthdays for my niece who just turned 4 and my brother-in-law who will be turning the big 4-0 this week. Here's a few pics from the party...



If you go to Branson, you HAVE to go shopping and a visit to Tanger Outlet Mall is a must. We've gone every year for I don't know how many years now but Steve and I have always gone kid-less - one of the sweet blessings of having grandparents go with you on trips ;-) But this year we decided to take the girls and they LOVED it! All of their favorite stores in one mall - Justice, Children's Place, Gap Kids and Claire's!


One other understood rule about Branson, you have to go to Silver Dollar City. So we went on Saturday but unfortunately it rained quite a bit so we didn't get to stay very long. We went back the next day and although it was cloudy and cold most of the time, we still had a great time. We rode rides (the "big swings" was the kid's favorite), ate yummy food (the sausage skillet dinner was my fave!), listened to great music by Equador Manta (I loved this band!) and watched the most AmAzInG Chinese acrobat show (how in the world they do the things they do with their bodies I'll never know!). Here's a few pics from Silver Dollar City...






We had a great time and look forward to going back again soon!
