Vacation 2013: Branson, MO

Our vacation this year was to Branson, Missouri.  Only 5.5 hr drive but tons to do! It was actually pretty overwhelming when we got there.  We picked a little of everything so we had good variety-- we stayed in a little cabin, did Go-Karts, a riverboat cruise, an acrobat show,  hiking, fish hatchery, cave exploring, and a couple museums--the Maze of Mirrors and Ripley's Believe it or Not. The favorite activity for all five of us was the Chinese Acrobat show, just incredible and entertaining! Will definitely look for more shows in the future! =)

Day 1. Cabin check-in and Go-Karts!

Day 2. We originally planned on doing the train ride but heard it was boring so opted instead for the morning riverboat cruise. It was PERFECT weather and very enjoyable!!

In the afternoon we went to the Chinese Acrobat show. It was incredible and the favorite vacation event for all five of us! No photos though, of course.

Day 3. A more low key, low expense day of active adventure.  Hiking (almost 3 miles!!), fish hatchery, and cave exploring. The kids did great with everything! It was hot, we were tired by the end. But FUN!
He wanted to stop and admire EVERYTHING!!!

Day 4. Museums--Maze of Mirrors and Ripley's Believe It or Not.

 Overall, this was a really good trip!  Everything went smoothly and exactly as planned!  =)
