Memorial Day Weekend

We spent the weekend at Branson! We all went up Friday night and stayed at a lodge at Stonebridge. We had a 4 bedroom, 4 bath lodge, with a screened in porch out back.
I was so happy, the whole family was able to come. It was great to be able to spend time together.
Saturday, we relaxed, had a late breakfast, went swimming with the kids. Then went to Dixie Stampede. In all the trips we have had to Branson, this was our first trip to Dixie Stampede. They have pig races, ostrich race, horses and buffalo, it was good entertainment and pretty good food. I loved watching the faces of the little ones during the action.
Sunday we all went to Silver Dollar City. I enjoyed walking around and enjoying the plants and foilage, but really enjoyed watching the kids enoy the park. And I rode WILDFIRE and kept my eyes open this time.
They have a BBQ Festival, the BBQ was really good. I didn't get a roasted corn though! It's my favorite. Or maybe the kettle corn is my favorite, I did get that. I found out that the grandkids LOVE kettle corn.
They have a great water play area for the kids, Gyser Gulch. I think maybe the kids enjoyed that most. There are little play areas where water squirts out of the ground. And there are water guns, the big kids, Brad, Josh, Steve and Amanda left the little kids behind and played with the water guns, they were soaked!
We stayed at the park from open till close, the weather was a little overcast, I think that kept us from getting tired. And the kids were still happy when we left!
It was pretty much a great weekend!

I love the family picture. Sounds like ya'll had a fun holiday weekend. I love how Paula dresses the boys the same. If I would have had two boys that where close in age I would have done the same thing. So cute! All of your grandchildren are.
