Day 4, 5 and 6

Day 4 was mostly a travel day as I mentioned before. We made it to Branson in time for Brooklyn to take a nap. When she woke up, we headed to Branson Landing. We ate at the White River Fish House which was pretty good. The atmosphere was fun. John and I split catfish (which didn't come close to comparing to Catfish Hole) and some really amazing peach cobbler. The girls' favorite part was the vanilla ice cream that they shared. We hung out at the landing and let the girls play on the playground and watch the fountains. We made it back home in time to get the girls in bed and watch the season finale of Lost.

Day 5 started at 7am with Emma saying, "Let's go swimming!" John proceeded to set her up on the couch with her milk and some cartoons. We went back to sleep until about 8:00. Around 10:00, we headed over to check out the pool. This did not last long because the water was freezing cold. Apparently, they turn off the heat in the indoor pool on Memorial Day. After much whining, we went back and put the girls in the bathtub for a much needed bath.
After some rest time, we went to Celebration City where we rode a few rides before meeting up with John's parents. We all ate dinner together and rode a few more rides.

Day 6 was very low key. GDad fixed us his famous cheesy eggs and biscuits for breakfast. We packed all of our stuff up and then headed to a park. We played on a cool playground and down by the water. Finished with some lunch and got on the road.
We had a wonderful vacation and made many fun memories, but we are so glad to be home. There is nothing like coming home after being gone for a while. Belle was very happy to see us, but probably a little sad that Leah is gone. I think Leah walked her more than we normally do!

So fun! I am so glad to get to hear about your trip! It has provided me little breaks during the day. It is good to know a traveling limit, too! Hope we can go on vacation with you guys sometime. Hopefully we will ALL be starting from Fayetteville. There are things we need to do while we are here. I think we are only 5 hours from Niagra FAlls. I know I will be wondering why we didn't ever go there if we move away. (I secretly hope that I will be talking about that soon while in Fayetteville!) Hope you adjust back to home quickly. Take care!
