Below is our to do list for this week.
Our son took a trip to Ireland during spring break. He shared photos daily though his cell phone app and I got them on my iPad. Technology is wonderful sometimes!
I printed off a number of recipes about a week ago and I wrote down their titles on this list, I may cook some and I may not.
Easter lunch and egg hunting will be at our home after church on Sunday and I've got a tentative menu planned- but I've already changed my mind and think we will have tabouli instead of the pasta salad. The ham and baked beans can cook in crockpots and the cold dishes will be ready in the fridge so I'm hoping to have an easy to serve meal with lots of time for egg hunting. My grandchildren think plastic eggs are super fun.
Last week was spring break in Oklahoma for just about every school.
We took our 2 grandchildren to Branson Missouri for a short vacation. We stayed at a condo-type hotel and ended up eating most all our meals in our little kitchen-dining area.
On our first day in Branson, we went to Dixie Stampede. This is a Dolly Parton production with dinner, a pre show with an amazing juggler and the show has lots of singing, horses and beautiful costumes.
On the 2nd and 3rd days we went to an amusement park, Silver Dollar City. With my husbands military service, we got a very low price on our tickets.
My husband and Gavin like this ride. The riders shoot water guns at targets and people watching or waiting to ride this ride can shoot back.
Elizabeth didn't ride but she liked shooting water back at her cousin and Grandpa.
This ride would be especially fun on a hot day.
Our second day at Silver Dollar City was much much colder!
Grandpa found a windbreaker on clearance and I ended up with a Branson hoodie sweatshirt. It's not really my style but it was very warm and seems to be the style in Branson.
Gavin had brought 2 warm camouflage jackets so he lent one to Elizabeth. Both cousins got warm hats at the Walmart.
Riding more rides
On our 4th day, we saw Moses at the huge Sight and Sound theater. I don't have any photos but it is our favorite Branson theater. Last year, my husband and I saw Jonah on our Branson trip.
These Biblical plays are so good! If you go to Branson, we suggest you put Sight and Sound on your must do list.
This round structure made entirely of stone, even the roof, doesn't seem like it should be possible.
The white dots in the background are sheep, of course.
And if you got this far, I am planning a post of my tips for glue on nails soon.
Have a good week everyone!
