Branson fun!

So I've been needing to post this for awhile but I guess I was sulking at the fact that somehow several of our pictures got deleted :( None the less, we had lots of fun and I need to share ;) We left on Friday and stayed till Sunday. 

The older 2 rode with my parents as the  younger 2 needed naps (we left at naptime on Friday) so here they are sleeping peacefully :)
Our plan was to get to Branson in time to eat dinner at Branson landing and watch the laser light show. Saturday we were going to swim at the resort in the morning, which ended up being spent buying coats as it was sooooo cold! Old Navy had hats and scarves for $1 each!! And their coats were 50% off :) So we went back to the condo to eat lunch and put Micah down for his nap. David stayed with him and the rest of us headed out to Silver Dollar City (to be joined by David and Micah later).  So we hit the shops and things Micah wouldn't have attention for first and saved the cave and rides (Davie wanted to ride them with Ethan) for later. 

Don't they look cute. 

My mom and Brianna. 
Ethan wanted to check out the map with Grandpa to make sure we didn't miss anything and to know what rides they had ;) 
One of the first things we did was ride a horse and carriage.....can you tell it was freezing there?!?
The gang in front of the Blacksmith's shop. 
This ended up being the only photo from Marvel Cave that didn't get erased.... I don't remember which "room" we were in, but I think it was the Cathedral room. (See, David and Micah did make it :)

After dinner and the cave however Micah was getting bored so he and David (isn't he an AWESOME dad, and loving husband!) headed back to the condo while we went to see the Christmas tree and parade. I think Micah would have like them, but he's not good at holding our hands to walk yet and was tired of being in the stroller :(

Sorry it's sideways, but this was so cool that I had to at least post a partial clip of this neat Christmas tree display!

Here's everyone bundled and waiting for the parade.
Grandpa gave Ethan a piggy back ride back up to the front of the park.
After our busy afternoon we all headed back to the condo, showered and had a bedtime snack! LOL

Micah was sleepy and enjoyed some cuddle time with Grandpa :)

Here's Micah enjoying his breakfast on Sunday morning, poptarts :)
After checking out of the condo we went to eat lunch at a place called "The Hard Luck Diner". The food was very good and all the servers sing...........well except ours :( Even one of the cooks came out and sang! We all had fun!
Caleb was in another one of his "I don't want you to take a picture of me." moods....
Ethan was waiting for Daddy and Grandpa to decide what they wanted so they could play the games with him! LOL

Micah was having fun playing with the people out the window who were waiting in line to eat here. Brianna enjoyed playing the games on the kids menu too.
It was to cute to watch Micah dancing to the songs the servers were singing :)

I love seeing pics of your family. It's almost like I can say I really do know you! Looks like you all had a great time. This is such a fun season!

Well we only stayed at SDC that day for about 3 hours. As we were walking out a cave tour was about to start so we did that. It was a nice change from the 38 degrees we were in outside. Then saw HSM3. We had a good time that weekend though.

Sounds like you guys had a great time! Looked like a lot of fun! We haven't been to SDC in awhile, it is probably time to get back there soon.
