There was that one moment when we pulled over to figure out exactly which way we needed to be going....and per the large sign, it must've been a hot spot for travelers trying to navigate around the large metropolis of Branson, Missouri.
On Thursday we had a pancake breakfast with sausage, all sorts of juices, milk and mixed fruit on the side...the one item we forgot, was a little thing called coffee. So Carol and I volunteered to go get some while the guys took the kids on a nature walk. At one point, Adam had all the kids by himself while John went to get our car....naturally, Adam would have them doing stretches and relay races.
They went to a nearby park where a rocky creek made for an excellent place to play, while Carol and I tried to make our way back to the condo from the nearest gas station...we were not happy to see this map showing that we would be sitting in the car for next hour or so.
Our little posse had a lot of fun and really travels quite well together.
Thursday afternoon we headed off to the Sight and Sound Theatre's performance of Moses. I can't say enough good things about it. It was awesome! The kids loved it, Adam thought it was a truly great presentation and I thought it was a Broadway caliber show. With live animals, three stages surrounding the audience, beautiful singing and acting, it felt like we were right in the middle of the story.
We'd packed a picnic lunch and had planned to find a park to eat at but there just happened to be a couple of tables at the Lost Treasure mini golf so the guys went and gathered the stuff from the cars and we quickly had the kids chowing down.
Our little get away was a lot of fun. Our kids loved it and were not ready to get back into the swing of things. I'm so glad we had the chance to make more memories and enjoy the time together. Hope your Spring Break was restful and enjoyable for you too.
