A Branson vacation

Initially, Josh's were planning a trip to Kansas to help celebrate Sophia's birthday.  But when we found out that the production of "Moses" would be showing at the Sight and Sound in Branson, we decided on a change of plans.  We would meet in Branson!  We found this house on-line with VRBO.

It is so much nicer to rent a house for the family than to get 3 hotel rooms!   And it is cheaper too!

Because we wanted to get to the back stage tour, we had to get up really early!   It was dark when we left.  We drove to Jill's to carpool together.  It was just getting light when we left their place at 6:30.

"The moon is coming with us!"

Funny sign en route.  

After the 5 1/2 hour trip, we made it to Branson.  We met our son's family at Sight and Sound. 
 Back stage tour.

The dressing room

The tour guides were not only so funny, but their love for Jesus overflowed!
 Baby Moses 

We got to see some of the animals.  There are many live animals in the play!

Grands in Egypt! 

Eli decided he'd like to be the guy who drives the props on stage when he grows up.   And Hannah said she would like to be an actress!

There were some other props from other plays, like the manger scene...
and Goliath.
After the tour, there was some time before the show was to start, so we drove to a nearby Culver's for some frozen custard! 
After happy tummies, we drove back.  Allen had pre-ordered seats up close.  We love that!
You aren't allowed to take pictures during the play so I borrowed some online.

It was an incredible production!!  Go see it!!

Afterwards, we were hungry and went to Culver's again - this time for supper, but no dessert this time, much to the grandchildren's dismay.  Then we used GPS to find our house for the weekend.
It was in a wooded area and very quiet (until we came!)
The kids were excited that there were even birdie pillows on the porch for Nana.

It was decorated like a Colorado ranch home, with stuffed critters even!

There were 4 bedrooms with king size beds and each bedroom had a hot tub.

What a delightful cabin for us!

After reading your description and seeing your pictures, I want to rent the same cabin you did in Branson! Everything you wrote sold me on heading that way! Looks like you and your family are in for a great vacation and you all were able to see a great show as well! Vacation success!
