Branson time

Next month the daughter and her husband want to go to a meet-up with some of their Internet friends, and they'll be leaving the girls with us.  Cliff and I decided we'd take the opportunity to spend a weekend in Branson with them.

We really enjoyed the condo we shared last fall, but wow, the prices!  Even the cheapest ones, by the time you add the cleaning fee and tax, would end up costing $150 a night.  So this year we're opting for a motel, for less than half the price.  That will put us in Branson near all the activities, which will be nice.  The downside of motels is that it's difficult to relax... no comfy easy chairs to lounge in.  But I think we'll deal with it just fine.  I'll take the portable lounge chair from my cabin for Cliff.

If you go to Branson, you simply have to see a music show.  Again, the prices floored me, until I checked out the Presley's, one of the most popular shows there.  They have a family rate:  Two adults and two children under 17  for $59.  Now there's a deal.

I already bought a card that is going to give me, Cliff, and the two girls all the bumper-boats and go-cart racing and miniature golf and even laser tag
we can stand.

It's going to be great fun!

Sounds like your going to have a great time!  It's so nice to be able to spend quality time with the grandkids like that ;)  And the kids will ALWAYS remember it.  I know my kids who are both now adults in Sept always remembered the time shared with grandma...going on trips with her and just having a fun time.

What I remember of "Summer" is time with Grandma and Grandpa in Branson. The girls are looking forward to it, so I am SO happy.

You two are the COOLEST grandparents. My grands never did anything like this with us when we were kids.  Matter of fact, they never left their home (except to go to church and the store).  LOL
