Branson Getaway

Thursday, October 15, Allen, Gage, Uncle Curt, Aunt Vicki, Trevor, Darci, Amy (Trevors friend), Grandma & Grandpa Hoobler, my mom Penny, Quin and I all headed down to Branson. We went to the Dixie Stampede and road go-carts Thursday evening and went to Silver Dollar City Friday.

My son never fails to amaze me. We started for Branson Thursday morning around 11:00 a.m. I thought this would be perfect timing for him so he could get a good nap in before being busy that evening. Boy did he prove me wrong. Everyone except Allen who was driving and Gage took naps! He was quite for everyone else but he never fell asleep! He was good all evening and absolutely loved the Stampede.

After riding go-carts we went back to the hotel Lodge of the Ozarks (which by the way that was a great hotel and would recommend to anyone!!) and went swimming till 10 that night in their indoor heated pool.

We then went to Silver Dollar City Friday and Gage road most of the little kid rides and also got to ride Fire in the Hole. This was the first time he was tall enough to do it. We went and watched a show at the Saloon and also got an old time family picture taken. Gage got to get his pictures taken with the Saloon Girls after their show Allen and Gage getting ready to go on Fire in the Hole Amy (Trevors friend), Trevor, Darci and Gage riding the Flooded Mine.

All in all I think it was an enjoyable trip. All that really matters when the day is done is that my son had a great time and we all returned home safe.
Mission accomplished.
