We had a total blast! We stayed in a very nice condo that had a full kitchen, spacious living room, big bedrooms & a screened in porch.
The weather was BEAUTIFUL the whole weekend. Not too hot, not too cold. Just about as perfect as you could get.
On Friday, we spent most of the day at Silver Dollar City. We ate dinner at pizza restaurant called Luigi's & then did a little shopping at the Outlets.
On Saturday, we went to the Titanic Museum, shopped at the Branson Landings (an open air mall) & then went to the Dixie Stampede for dinner & a show.
On Sunday, we went to a different outlet mall, where we shopped for a few hours. Matt & I had to be home at 6:00 for a friend's birthday dinner, so we left Branson around 12:30.
The only not so perfect part of the weekend was when my stomach started hurting SO FREAKING BAD on Saturday. The pain went from off & on to constant to I thought I was going to die.
By the time we got to the Dixie Stampede that night, it hurt to walk, sit or stand. I don't think everyone knew I was in such pain...I didn't want to ruin anyone's fun, but there was a point before the show started that I almost asked Matt to take me back to the condo.
Thankfully, I started feeling better during the show, but my stomach didn't really feel normal again til at least Wednesday. I guess I just ate something that didn't agree with me.
Anyway, I have lots of pictures to show, so I'll just let them tell the rest of our weekend.
Riley played some games at SDC & this was the first "prize" she won. A fox she named "Foxy".
We all won!
Jackson has a monkey on his back.
My sister with her dolphin & Riley with Foxy & Quackly.
This was a big step for me. I don't ride rides. They scare me. But, I told myself I would 2 on this trip. I did the swings & the elephants.
Riley & Jack.
How cute is this picture? Matt (Mop) did the kiddie roller coaster with Jackson.
We can't tell if Jackson liked the ride or not.
The elephant ride. That's my dad.
Me getting ready to ride.

Riley popped 3 balloons with each dart. Seriously. She was queen of the dart throwing.

Our waitress asked Jackson to be a part of the show. He & 3 other kids got to chase chickens.
Jack's chicken didn't win, but he still got a medal & a book.
