Trip to Branson

Last weekend we took a very quick, last minute trip to Branson, MO as our last summer 2013 getaway. I will say this wasn't my favorite summer, and I wish we could have done more "family things" together, but things were just BUSY. Jordan took summer school, and the weather wasn't the greatest this season. But I'm glad we took this little trip. My mom and Jordan's cousin came along and it was a great time. Bradley did awesome on the car ride and in the hotel. I feel very thankful to have such an easy going baby!
On the first night after we checked into our hotel we went and checked out the outlet mall, which was within walking distance. Then we went to a BBQ place that had live music. Bradley loved all the music; one singer even came to our table and sang to him. Of course, I didn't have the camera. Mom fail.
The 2nd day we went to Silver Dollar City because they were having a great sale on tickets as their season was ending. I was surprised how well Bradley did in the stroller and in the park the whole day. He was perfectly content and loved looking around at everything going on. The park was super breastfeeding friendly which was very convenient; I appreciated all the nursing stations throughout the park. We rode rides, the train, saw a Louisiana Cajun style band play, ate ice cream, and just had a nice day..the weather was amazing!


I'm glad we were able to have this mini getaway. Life is about to get very busy!! Class started today; I am taking 6 hours and Jordan's taking 15 credit hours. Jordan is staying on top of his medical school applications. Oh yea..and we have those things called full time jobs, lol! We are also moving!! We are going to be renting a quaint little home closer to my family; we will be completely moved by the 2nd week in September. Whew!
I feel these next few months are just going to fly by, and next thing you know it will be time for Bradley's 1st Birthday :( Bring it on!
