Branson Getaway Day 1

Branson Getaway Day 1

We took a few days off work for a family trip to Branson/Big Cedar.

This is our third summer to stay at Big Cedar and we just love it. It’s the perfect relaxing getaway. We bring food for breakfasts and lunches at the condo, we go out for delicious dinners, lounge at the pool, shop and enjoy.

Before we got to Big Cedar, we stopped at the Showboat Branson Belle.  It was raining, but we still had a great time.

Ty would take Remi out in the rain and she thought that was very funny.

We ate a delicious lunch and then had some time to explore the decks. It was barely sprinkling at this point, so we went up to the top deck and Remi even got to go into the captain’s quarters and see the big steering wheel.

She LOOOOOVED the show. My musical performer heart was so happy. It was nap time so I wasn’t sure how she was going to do, but she was enthralled with the singing and dancing.

After the Belle, we got groceries and headed to Big Cedar.

Ty and Nancy got their fishing licenses and headed to the docks for a bit. Remi loved throwing rocks while they fished.

We also let her try the sand. She HATED it last fall at the beach, and she wasn’t a fan at first. But some nice people let her borrow their sand toys, and she liked playing in it.

We walked to Devil’s Pool for dinner. It was a GREAT dinner.  They had fabulous steaks and a great atmosphere.

After dinner we walked over to the actual “Devil’s Pool” waterfall. Remi loved splashing in the water with my mom.

And then Nancy taught her how to play on the fence. ha!  Grandmas are fun!

We had a pretty early evening. Remi was off her schedule and had only napped like an hour (although despite that, she was a CHAMP and a joy to be around).

She went to bed, my mom went for a walk, Ty and Nancy went fishing and I took a nice relaxing bath and went to bed early. It was basically a win for everyone.
