While our floors were being stained and finished, we took a little one-night family vacation to Branson. We spent the first afternoon at White Water. It was the kids first time at a big water park. They loved the wave pool and the sprinkler toys. Bryson and Selah spent quite a bit of time going down the water slides. As brave and crazy as Charis is for a 2-year old, we have figured out that water sometimes scares her. She will swim in a pool and play in sprinklers, but water slides, stepping onto a boat, walking on a bridge or a ramp over water really scares her. Shocker... I know. She's not afraid of much. But she still had fun too.
That evening we did a little shopping at the Outlet Malls, and then headed for the condo for the night. The next morning we were at Silver Dollar City as soon as it opened, and we stayed until we could stand the heat no more, which was about 2pm. It was 'Kids Fest' at SDC, so needless to say, we had plenty to do. We had a blast together, just the five of us. And that was it! Short and sweet. Hot and fun.
