Bound For Branson

Yes, I know it's been a long time. Having a new baby can do that to you. We also have had a lot going on since her birth, including a wonderful trip to Branson, Missouri.

My brother and his family, my grandmother, and my twin niece and nephew were there. We enjoyed lots of family time and good beer.

Walking around the Ihop on the trip up.

So sweet! Those two are precious!

The house we stayed in was beautiful and plenty big for our huge crowd. 
The view was phenomenal.

All the grandkids (okay minus the newest) on the floor playing together.

We got to see an awesome light, water and fire show on the Branson Landing. The kids liked it, but they definitely wanted some grown ups nearby.

Pops and his grandkids (the ones that walk anyway).

 We stayed on Lake Taneycomo, so one day we rented a pontoon boat to cruise the lake.

I'll admit, the two younger kids weren't really thrilled with the boat ride. Still too young.

Jake, Kelly and Lorelei.

Nick probably doesn't like this picture of him, but I love how Ryder is shoving him aside to drive the boat. Both Xander and Ryder got to drive the boat!

We went to this excellent zoo called The Promised Land Zoo. The kids loved it because you could actually pet and feed many of the animals they have there. Here, Selene is petting the prairie dog.

Nick and Pops took the older kids down to the lake shore to play.

"Throw it in the lake!"

Selene found a flower.

All in all we had a great trip and it definitely went by way too fast. We're looking forward to seeing some of the family again for Thanksgiving. We've already started plotting next year's trip, and hopefully we can all be together again. Branson was beautiful, and we didn't even scratch the surface of what there is to do there. That's the only thing with having little ones; but someday they'll all be right there with us.
