We are home safe and sound and had a Great week in Branson!! We found out that condos are the only way to go--esp. when traveling with children!!!! Having a washer/dryer, fridge, and stove right in our living quarters made life a lot easier. (Plus, we also came home with no dirty laundry, which made my Monday much better!!)
We went to one of Branson's newest attractions, the Branson Landing, and fell in love with that place immediately. Shops, restaurants, play grounds, trolley... and everything right on the water. Very neat place!!! They also have a great Joes Crab Shack that served us some wonderful King Crab Legs!!!
I could go on, and on, but I know "a picture's worth a thousand words" so I'll let my photos do the talkin'. Had a great time--can't wait to go again next year (or sooner :-).
The place we called home for a week.
The kids first Ferris Wheel Ride.
Khara and Kelsey loved this ride. It took you straight up and then let you drop. :-}
Our wonderful friend Barney at Celebration City. Khara is a big Andy Griffith Show fan (the old black and white ones, that is) --she thought seeing this guy was pretty cool. :-)
Kaden with his bump and black eyes still shining!!
And then, Curious George, at Silver Dollar City.
Incredible ice cream cones at Celebration City. They didn't have a kids size cone and the regular ones were HUGE, so I think Mark got stuck with the remains of 2 or 3 extra ones.
Great kiddie pool at the condo.
Is any vacation trip complete without shopping??? Branson has some wonderful outlet malls. With two little girls starting school in a month I had a great excuse. ;-)
Patiently waiting outside of Olive Garden.
