Last thoughts about Branson trip

How about Breakfast Burritos to start the day? YUMMY!!

Saturday, we went to another one of the Outlet Malls. Stacy wanted to look at the Corelle store to see if they had medium sized plates to match her dishes. They didn't have her pattern. She and I also hit the "intimate wear" shop for a couple of bargains a piece.
Then we headed for The Branson Landing. Rode the tram from one end to the other so we could go to the Bass Pro Shop. Spent quite a while in there just looking around. I came away with a Hush Puppy Mix and a breading mix for fried chicken that looked good,too.
Ron and I headed for the Bath and Body Works to pick up some hand soap.We met the rest of them at the fountain area after that, just in time to see the water and fire display! Ron got to see the tail end of it last year but I missed out. The shooting water and bursts of fire are all synchronized to music. Quite a display!! Next time we will try to catch it at night, too. Should be even more interesting with colored lights, too.
While we were riding the tram, Bostin saw that there was a Build a Bear store. So we went there next. He made a bear dressed in a Batman cowl etc., and Emily got a puppy dressed in a pink outfit. We had planned to go to the Disney store, too. but decided we were ready for our early supper instead. We had a coupon for so much $ towards our dinner at McFarland's in the IMAX complex so that is where we headed. Ron and I were hoping to be seated at one of the 'special' tables but they were already full. So we just watched instead! If you don't know what I am talking about...you will just have to go and figure it out for yourself! It is a lot of fun!

After supper we headed back out to Silver Dollar City to take in the evening show. We got there in plenty of time for Bostin to ride some of the rides in the kid's area that he had missed when we got rained out on Thursday. The show was good, but not as good as some we have seen there. But we had a good time anyway!

Kirk, Stacy and the kids needed to leave early the next morning to get back and see her cousin from California before they left to go back home. So we got up earlier than we had been and went to the breakfast buffet at Dockers with them as they were on their way out of town. Ron and I hung around the condo for a while afterward and then went to do some buiness at the officethere before we headed on home. We stoppd in Springfield on the way for supper. And at the Sonic in Warsaw for a drink. Got home in the early evening, but it wasn't real long before we headed for our chairs for a good sleep! We had such an enjoyable time together!

I'm sure it will happen again, sometime. We want to try a short trip with Keith and family, too, before long. I think they would like Branson, don't you?
