So a few weekends ago we took a little trip to Branson. Brad was working a basketball tournament in Springfield all weekend so the kids and I tagged along! I was happy that our friends Jena and Jamie decided to make the trip as well! We stayed at Castle Rock. The kids loved it with their own little nook that had bunk beds, but most of all they loved the indoor water park!!! We got there on Thursday afternoon and had the whole place to ourselves and it was pretty much like that all weekend long! On Friday we did a little shopping in the morning then headed out to Silver Dollar City! So glad that Jena and Jamie were there since Brad had to work. This was the kids first trip to SDC and they both loved it! Evan is my little thrill seeker and wanted to ride everything! The kids all got a little tired so we headed back to the hotel to play at the water park and to meet up with our friends The Kissengers!!! On Saturday we headed back to Silver Dollar City to do everything we missed out on the day before. Evan was determined to ride a roller coaster so the two of us stood in line forever to ride one. I probably asked him 100 times if he was sure he wanted to ride it and he kept saying yes so we did it and he loved it! After that we headed to meet up with everyone to play in the balls and then we found a spot to watch the parade! So sad that Brad ended up having to work the entire time so he missed out on all of the fun!

Sorry it has been awhile since I last posted! We have been crazy busy around here. I have started working at the restaurant during the day doing book keeping stuff and Whimsy Tin has been keeping me busy most nights! So its all been a good busy! Evan has finished soccer and I have to say it was fun but I will not miss the 8:30am games every Saturday!! He really seemed to enjoy it and loved playing the goalie. Lillie also started dance back in Sept. I just keep forgetting to take my camera with me to get some pictures. So I took a few last week finally!! Those who know me know that I have looked forward to the day she could start dance since the day I found out she was a girl!! She loves it! I am not sure if she is learning much but the girl has got some moves that can make you laugh!!
