Annual 4th of July getaway!

For the past two years we've gone on a quick getaway for the July 4th with my parents. It's been such a fun tradition!! This year we decided to go to Branson, MO for a few days. We stayed in the nicest condo and thoroughly enjoyed the time away!

 We got in late Sunday night, ordered pizza, hit up walmart, and called it a day. Monday morning, July 4th, we went Downtown to the landing and walked the river and ate lunch.  photo IMG_7259.jpg

 Tuesday morning we woke up and did Silver Dollar City again. Josh and I left the kiddos with my parents and went to ride a few rides with my little brothers. They were clearly thrilled to be waiting in line.  photo IMG_7413.jpg

 Their favorite part was the tram ride back to the parking lot.  photo IMG_7457.jpg

 Wednesday we packed up and decided to go to a Ripley's Believe It or Not museum because it was raining. It was actually alot of fun! Afterwards, we grabbed lunch at the YUMMIESSTTTT BBQ restaurant. I'm craving it right now major!

So so thankful for this trip away. Right before we left we got a call about a possible match. It didn't end up working out (5th failed possible match), so I was extra thankful we were on this trip to take our minds off things. Thanking the Lord for all this time as a family of four!
