We left Thursday early morning to go to Branson, MO. It is a good place to go to do a little of everything,
( ie. shop & eat.) and it saved us a little money instead of going somewhere really far away,
(ie: the beach or Europe) where we may have really liked to go instead.
But Branson has some hidden treasures and great tourist attractions that are really, well, attractive. An ahhhmazing scrapbook store, the Titanic Museum, and plenty of good places to eat. There is a cute downtown with several thrift & antique stores, and we had a good time just being together.
In all honesty the kids would have had the same amount of fun if we had stayed at a hotel near home and let them swim non-stop. But us adults had fun sight-seeing & eating.
Having said all of that, it is time to get unpacked and get back to work on the house.
Uggh. I did not miss this.
