FC: Our Family Vacation Branson, MO 2010
1: June 2010 we went to Branson for a week. Grandma went with us to help. We rented a two bedroom condo that had a pool. We did many different things during the week. At the end of vacation you both said you had so much fun you couldn't tell me what your favorite part was.
3: We spent a day at moonshine beach. It was so hot that day the water felt great. The girls spend the whole day trying to catch fish and finding shells..
4: One afternoon we went to Hard Work University. We got to see how they mill grain, weave baskets, and use a loom. We visited a one room school house where the girls got to dress up.
5: We went to the fish hatchery to see how they raised trout.
6: Branson Landing
7: There is a large fountain at the landing that does a fire and fountain show to music. sugar the clown was one of the street performers we ran into and as always the girls had to play in the fountain water. We went shopping in an old 5 dime store and to build a bear.
8: Hucks area had a raft that you got to ride & shoot bystanders with the water guns and the bystanders could shoot at you with water guns on the side walk. A big kids dream.
9: The girls got a chance to pan for gold just like the old times. They found not only gold but also gems.
10: We rode many rides while at Silver Dollar City and we even got to see Dora and Diego. There were bigger rides that we could all ride. Sophia's favorite ride was the lost river. It was a round raft that went down a fake river with a touch of a roller coaster. I think her favorite part was that you got off that ride wet.
11: One of the shows that we saw was a dog stunt show at Silver Dollar City. The dogs did all kinds of different stunts.
12: There was a water area in the park where there were mats that sprayed water. There were also water guns that you could shoot at targets and things that when you pumped them they sprayed.
13: Inside the park was a kid area that had a ton of foam balls. There were tubes to suck the balls up and this popcorn machine and guns where you shot the balls out of. It was 3 stories high.
14: The condo had a pool.. We were at the pool everyday for hours. Sophia got swimmers ear the 2nd day.
18: Uncle Ikes Horse Farm | We went horseback riding again this year. Sophia rode Lazy and Layla and I rode Lucky.
19: No trip is ever complete without seeing animals. There was a petting area set up like old time farm.
20: Branson was all about how it was done. We saw craftsman do all kinds of things, the girls got to dip candles and we experienced an old fashion train robbery.
