Weekend Recap: Branson!

We got to Branson around 1:30 AM Friday night…so we checked into our condo and crashed.  (Well, I crashed.  Our moms and Tyler are night owls and stayed up laughing and being silly.  Not me…I need my beauty sleep!)
We got up around 8 on Saturday and got ready.  We made a stop at a store that we used to love…but the stock was super low (and it seemed like they were going out of business) so that was a bust.
We stopped by our favorite Branson breakfast spot- Billy Gail’s.  Pancakes that are HUGE!  Mom and Tyler had pancakes (and I had an egg white omelet…#healthyeating).
After breakfast, we got to Silver Dollar City right when it opened at noon.  It was a little chilly, so we were all layered up.  We started with a little shopping and then saw Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol.  Oh my!  SDC has totally stepped up their game with the shows. This was Broadway quality and totally great!
We rode several rides (including the new Outlaw Run….a wooden coaster that goes upside down several times! woah!)…did some more shopping and then got lunch.  I was TOTALLY excited for my chicken succotash!  It’s my favorite thing in the City!
Fall was in full bloom there…so pretty in the Ozarks!
We did some more fun stuff- lots of shopping and tasting and demonstrations (our favorites were watching the potter making coffee cups in the pottery shop…or the glass blower making bowls)…and we made our way back to the square for the Christmas tree lighting.  I was a happy girl because I had some hot wassail.  I wait ALL year for this yummy drink!
The tree lighting is set to music and just beautiful!  Christmas is upon us!
After the lighting, we made ANOTHER trip to the candy store because they wanted more candy! ha!  Then we found a spot and watched the parade.  It was short, but fun.
We left the park after the parade and picked up dinner on the way home.  After we ate, we hit up the pool and hot tub in the condo.  It was a relaxing way to end the day!
Sunday, we had breakfast at the Belgian Waffle and Pancake House.  Then we dropped Tyler and Nancy off at the Payne Stewart golf course.  They played 18 holes while mom and I shopped.  It was great.
 
We had dinner at Fudrucker’s and then headed home.

It was a WONDERFULLY fun weekend.  I just love Branson.
