Silver Dollar City... WAHOO!!!

On the train

Geyser Gulch 

Branson Landing fountains

At the Table Rock Lake fish hatchery
Look at all the trout!
Taylor and I have been doing a lot of fun "grown up" stuff lately, like our beach trip, so we thought it would be fun to do a mini-vacation with Stella.  We took her to Branson.  I was a little nervous that I would be worn out by Silver Dollar City, but we had so much fun!  It was a gorgeous, warm day, and we went all over the park.  We ate SO much!  She was a little too small for most of the kiddie rides, but she loved Geyser Gulch!  We spent a lot of time there.  We bought Season passes, so we will definitely be heading back sometime this summer.  I hope she will have grown an inch or two so she can ride all the rides!  We stayed at Branson Landing at the Hilton Promenade.  We LOVED the hotel.  So nice!  And it was very convenient, since we could walk downstairs and shop and eat dinner.  They even have this huge fountain by the lake where they put on a show with fire and music.  Stella loved it!  We had dinner at Cantina Laredo (yummy margaritas for mommy and daddy!)  The next day we went to the Fish Hatchery at Table Rock lake.  Now, you all know this is not really my thing!  But daddy loves to fish, and we had to balance Stella out from all that shopping ;) She got to see where they grow the baby trout that they stock Taneycomo with.  Then we hit up Bass Pro Shop and a few outlet stores on the way out of town... best find:  a $10 pair of black tall rain boots from Banana Republic!  I also got a gorgeous dress.  Ahh.... sales!  Now we are back in town and heading over to Jesse and Uncle Trevor's for a cookout! I loved our mini-vacation... definitely great bonding time! I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend as much as we did!
