Over the weekend we headed off to our annual trip to Branson MO. For the past two years we have went to Branson with my sister and her family and stayed at the Grand Country Inn. The hotel has an indoor/outdoor water park area and the kids love it!

Sharee and Caden are pumping it up!

Caden getting ready to go down the slide!

Devin and Cameron plotted how to soak some kids!

It worked!

Of course my boys could spend hours and did just that swimming in the pool. It is amazing what good swimmers they are becoming! I think they are starting to get their first fin! They love standing on Dad's neck and jumping off!

We had some great family time and made some great memories! Of course we also enjoyed our time with Aunt Tara, Uncle Rod, Devin, and Sharee!

At the end of the day we decided to stop by Andy's for a strawberry concrete, and then we headed home. It doesn't matter where I've been when we are on the road to come home...I cannot wait to get there! My own bed, pillow, and comfort! There is no place like home!

Hello Rhonda,
How fun. What a great trip. I also long for my own bed. It's just so nice to be in my own home.

I just saw your update about your tooth! Yikes - how is it feeling?

Hi Rhonda,
Great trip. We are headed over to Branson in a couple of weeks. I am considering staying at the grand country inn. Is it worth it???

Carrie said...

We love Branson. In fact we lived there while I was in college. Donnie and I both attended College of the Ozarks. Now that we are gone we at least go back and check in with friends once a year. I love the picture of the kids pumping it up.
Have a great day!
