Vacation... part one

We got back from vacation over a week ago.  We got back Saturday night, picked up the dogs on Sunday, and I left for Houston on Monday.  I was in Houston all week, and just got back late this past Friday night, so we didn't even download the pictures until yesterday!  We decided tht Branson was a once in a lifetime experience. :)  But, our vacation overall was AWESOME!  We were able to relax and have a lot of fun together.  I haven't processed all the photos yet, but here's a preview!

Here we are Day 1 at Silver Dollar City Theme park.  This was taken just before we rode the Water Toboggan and got absolutely SOAKED from head to toe.  (Seriously, there was not an inch of us that was not dripping!)


After a few twisty and turny rides, Dan wasn't feeling so well, so I rode the Giant Swing by myself - 3 times.  It was so much fun!

After a couple of days in Branson, we needed a break and headed out to Nauvoo, IL.  We attended a session at the temple and then took in the Nauvoo Pagent on the riverfront.

That's all for now.  Stay tuned.

I love Silver Dollar City. It has been so long since I have been there, I am sure it has changed a lot. We used to go to Branson on vacation a lot when I was little. My mom was born near there. Can't wait to see the rest of your vacation pictures.

How neat that you got to see Nauvoo! I've always wanted to go and haven't had the chance yet. Can't wait to hear more about your trip:).

fun! We love Nauvoo, too. I love the "Sunset on the Mississippi" show. Haven't seen the pageant, though.

glad you had fun.

Gorgeous photos!! I love to see the Nauvoo Temple (even though I've never seen it in person)! I served my mission in Iowa and Nauvoo was just outside my mission boundary - BUMMER!!
