Branson, MO

Last month the kids had a 4 day weekend, so we decided to go to Branson, MO and visit our bestest friends there.  They used to live in our town, but moved away this summer, and we have missed them tons!  We had a lot of fun in Branson.  It is a very pretty place, but very busy.  The traffic was crazy!  My friend told me when she picked up her kids from school one day she was in the car for 2 whole hours because of stop and go traffic.  Ugh. . . but we loved the weekend we spent with them.  Didn't see any shows, just played with friends and went on the lake. 

This is me and my friend down at the Landing--a fun shopping area by the Lake. 

Our friends have a boat, so they took us out for a ride on the Lake.  It was so fun!

They even let my kids drive :)  Miss E loved it!

Mr J thought is was really fun to drive the boat, but he about made everyone sick because he would turn the wheel one way then the other--back and forth--ugh.  Better watch where you are going son!

The kids love the boat!

What a life. . . 
It was very beautiful with the leaves starting to turn for fall.   
What a fun place with the greatest people!  We can't wait to go back and visit again!


  1. How fun to see your friends! Looks like a great trip.

  2. What fun and looks so peaceful! Your kids are so cute!

  3. It looks so beautiful there. How fun to get to spend time there on the lake. I didn't realize that your friends had moved. That would e so sad to have them gone. So fun to see your sweet families together!

  4. I've heard about Branson - but nothing like what you show in your photos. I think I'd prefer your version :)
