The time has finally come! I had a couple of hours today between my two jobs, so I decided to go ahead and blog about our little Valentine's getaway! We went to the fabulous town of Branson, MO! If you haven't been there, I highly recommend it! It has a little bit of everything...shopping, shows, water parks, amusement parks, museums, etc. We stayed there two nights and did a little bit of everything. We ate some amazing food, saw a comedy show, shopped until we dropped, and went to an indoor water park. My hubby was NOT excited about the indoor water park, but it turned out wonderful! It was right next door to our hotel and had two slides, a lazy river, and several hot tubs. It was SO fun to be inside playing in the water when it was snowing and 20 degrees outside! : ) If you don't want picture overload, just skip to the very bottom. Overload commencing now:
The roads on the way to Branson.
We made it!
Testing my passion factor? Haha! (Yes, we really did it.)
The next morning, we ate at this amazing little restaurant for breakfast!
My breakfast...just look at those amazing biscuits!
Stuffed like turkeys.
Shopping at Branson Landing.
Big Cedar Lodge...so beautiful.
The morning that we were heading home, we woke up to this!
We were thrilled!! 5-6 inches of snow!
Stopping at Steak 'n Shake on the way home. Our first time eating there.
Can I just say...YUMMMMM!! : )
The roads on the way home.
Hands at 10 and 2.
Yes, that would be MY husband. Haha.
Snow ball throw success.
7 hours to get to Branson, 12 hours to get home. Oh snow.
All in all, it was a wonderful getaway. Other than it taking double the time to drive home, we had a blast. I really think we stopped at 7-8 gas stations on the way home. Driving 30 miles an hour makes me have to pee a lot! Haha! We are just thankful that God kept us safe! We definitely plan to have getaways more often, especially before we have kids! Going on vacation with the one you love is just icing on the cake of marriage! : )
I'm off to work again! Hope y'all have had a great day!
