Ozarks - Branson MO.

The tornado sirens eventually stopped last night. The storms were just north of us. We did get some wind and rain. But nothing too extreme. Jakob was already sleeping in the large closet in our room, so I put Caleb in there too just to be safe. But all was well enough.

Yesterday we woke up and spent the day repacking everything and started on our way South East to Branson, Missouri.

Once again the drive was beautiful. The Ozarks are very pretty. We are staying in a condo resort right next to Silver Dollar City theme park. The condos are very nice. We have a two bed 2 bath with a kitchen as well as washer and dryer. It is awesome! Especially since we'll be here for another week. There is a back deck that over looks a forest valley with a large river winding through it. It's beautiful.

Last night we drove into Branson and drove the strip as we went looking for a place to eat. Branson is full of theme parks, museums, and lots of entertaining shows. We're looking forward to the week. We're going to a dinosaur museum this morning with Jakob. Then we'll go get our week pass for Silver Dollar City (it's a 1800's themed amusement park.) Sometime during the week we hope to go see a show that is similar to the Irish Dancing of River Dance. We will also be here for the National Kid's Festival at Silver Dollar City. It should be a very fun week!!

This is the week of my family reunion. Everyone is coming in later today. Bruce and Chris, Matt, Karin and her kids, Kevin and his family, Jim and Kathy and Doug, and Joann. It will be very nice to be together and catch up again. We all grew up together so we have a strong friendship base.

Well, I need to get this morning started....

Things are going great here. It looks like we have finally got our home. I will update my blog tonight and share all about it.
