We had the best time in Branson this month. Last year, we found this little tucked away gem, called the Marriott Willow Ridge. We stayed there and fell in love with it. We stay in condos with a kitchenette and washer/dryer. (A definite must for a mom of toddlers.) We grill out and eat at the snack bar and spend our days swimming and soaking up the sunshine.
This year, the Harrison's drove up from LA and stayed with us. Reese and Annah Kate had such a fun time together. We started our long weekend off at Cantina Laredo for lunch (one of my favorites) and walked around the Landing. We later checked in and made our giant grocery run, then ate every meal at the resort from there on out. Matt and Clay grilled chicken and veggies, steaks and corn on the cob, the kiddos grilled hot dogs at the fire pit...we weren't hurting for good food. ;) The only time I left was to run to the outlet malls with Katie to grab some polo shirts for the boys and a few Disney treats for the kids. We spent our days swimming, lounging by the pool, taking naps, playing outside, and just enjoying being away from the every day schedule we keep at home. We can't wait to go back again next year!
We drove home on June 19, Father's Day. We took our wonderful Daddy to breakfast at Panera and surprised him with tickets to Mercy Me in July and some sweet cards. He's the greatest Dad there is to these two little ones. They are beyond blessed to have him. We love you so much and thank God every day that you are ours!!!
