Weekend Get-Away

Yay! We FINALLY had a weekend get away. As usual, it rained on us the whole time! IT NEVER FAILS!!!! I'm glad there were other dedicated tourists around. Otherwise, we may have looked a little dim-witted walking around in the rain.

This isn't us. I just wanted to prove that we weren't the only ones determined to make the best of a bad situation.

We were able to have a lot of fun anyway. Since it was raining and dreary, I wasn't able to take many pictures. The pictures I took aren't high quality, but I will share a few with you anyway!

Table Rock Lake Dam at Branson, MO

Ripley's "Believe It or Not" Museum

Pictures from "57 Heaven Car Museum" in Branson , MO

And last but not least, from "Legends in Concert":

Although he looks like a wax figure, this is a real Elvis Impersonator. Isn't he cute? (Look at the big smile on Chatty's face.

A lady, who works at one of the stores in Branson, said that they experience really dry weather in the months of June and July. In fact, the people who actually live there hope for some rain during those months. I told her that maybe I'll plan another weekend get-away to Branson some time during those months to give them some relief. I'm sure the rain will follow us again.


  1. I love the museum!! What a lot of fun things from that era. Elvis is great!

    Too bad it rained that whole time. But I'm glad you had a lot of indoor things to do.

  2. I am so glad you all had a great time, in spite of the rain! I love the pics!! Lots of love, Bonnie.
