Branson Landing

Monday, August 13, 2012

I wanted to share a little about our weekend trip we took a couple weekends ago.  Our family really enjoys going to Branson, MO.  It's a relatively short drive from where we live so it's just far enough away to feel "gone" but close enough that it's an easy weekender, it also doesn't hurt that a friend of ours owns a condo there!

Here's a picture of the backside of the condo's...

They are located right next to the Payne Stewart Golf Course and are really lovely!  It's never crowded and we normally have the pool all to ourselves.  It's a great place to just hang out as a family and recharge.




This time we visited the HOLLYWOOD WAX MUSEUM and surprisingly it was really fun!  We got some great pics of the kids hanging with their celebrity friends however those are my phone and for some reason it's being a jerk by not allowing me to share them!

We love to go to the downtown area and explore the antique shops & BRANSON LANDING.  One of our favorite places that is a must go to each time is Dick's 5 and Dime.  You would not believe all the stuff jammed into this place!  Our kids really have a field day in there!  Although, you'll need more than a dime if you want to buy something! Ha!  


We've never really taken the time to wait around for the water, light & fire show at the Fountains.  We did this year and it was awesome!  It was so hot that the mist from the water cannons really cooled us off!  On our next visit we're going to make sure to visit the Fountains at night, we were told that was something we shouldn't miss.  I'm not a great videographer but here's a short clip of what it was like...



Can you imagine how awesome that must be a night?!  Just watching our video's makes me ready to go back already!  I can't believe we are right around the corner from school starting back again.  Summer has flown by this year for us.  What about you?


If you aren't already then I'd love to have you follow along...

  2. What a great place to go for a weekend. I bet that is a neat thing to see at night! Yes, our summer has flown by! We are back to school next Monday. I'm ready for some routine. I'm trying to get organized this week while the kids are at Disney with the grandparents. (It's so nice and quiet here this morning...sigh!)
