Branson Trip

We just returned from a very relaxing 4 days in Branson! We were able to rent a two bedroom condo on the lake for their off-season prices. What a deal! We spent a couple days at Silver Dollar City. We even convinced Caleb to ride the roller-coaster. It took a $20 bribe to get him on, but he finally did it! I even squelched my fears and rode Wildfire(a coaster that actually goes upside down-TWICE). I did ok the first ride, but the second one did me in. I was on the bench for a half-an-hour waiting for my Dramamine to kick in!
The Truitt's(our pastor's family) and the McCarthy's(my sister's family) were also in Branson last week. It was great to be together. We took the kids to see the Duttons. They are a performing family of six brothers and sisters plus the parents. They play all kinds of instruments and they sing. It has become our tradition to go see them every time we're in town. I posted a pic of Ben Boardman with Ben Dutton. (Both are very Hyper!!!)
We are back to the grind of school this week. In some ways, the routine is very calming for us. In other ways, I would like to try the perpetual vacation for a while!
