Branson Day 2

It was raining when we got up this morning and rained off and on during the day.  But it didn’t damper our day any.  First we ate breakfast at McDonald’s in Forsyth.  Kasey said they had the biggest play place he had ever seen.  It was a really nice clean McDonald’s.

So then we drove through Branson.  Traffic was pretty bad, slow going most of the way.  Here’s the Titanic Museum.  We didn’t go, but I really like the building.

Since it was raining we decided to go to the Butterfly Palace. We weren’t really sure what to expect with it.

We watched a 3D movie first about caterpillars and butterflies.  I wore the 3D glasses the whole time, but Kasey and Mark didn’t.  It looked like the butterflies were flying right out into the audience.

Kelly and Kasey

Kasey touched this butterfly, he wasn’t supposed to and I think it went into shock.

This is inside the butterfly area.  There were a lot of butterflies flying around, but it really wasn’t what I thought it would be.

This was a water feature they had inside the butterfly area, people put money in here, Kasey wanted to get it out.  Can’t say I blame him, there was quite a bit in there.

This was leaving the area going back down into the foyer.  Here’s Kasey running down the ramp.  He’s right by the window running.  I can’t figure out how to draw an arrow to him.

Can you guess what he did here?  He ran right into a mirror and came out crying.  Wheh!

We were looking at the Branson map in the car, Kasey would keep asking, “can I see the map”, “can I see the map”, until we finally gave it to him.  He was pretty serious about figuring out where we were at.  I thought this was a cute picture.

Kasey and Daddy played with the ball around the park and we went swimming.  No pictures of that, but the water was pretty cold.  They had a hot tub, Kasey and I would alternate between the hot tub and the pool. Mark stay in the hot tub, the water was too cold for him.

I went to a Quilt Store too in Branson, called Quilts and Quilts!   I found 3 more quilt candy fabrics.  I’m making a Christmas Candy Jar quilt with my friend Nita.  We have been collecting Christmas fabric for a while.  I’ll post more on that later.  But I did buy this jelly roll, Frosted Memories.  I really liked it.  Even though it’s Holiday, I thought it was a subtle Christmas fabric.  I put a copy of all the fabrics that  in the line.  I am going to make this pattern with it.  My other quilting friend, Barbara already made this one and my mother-in-law has a quilt like it that her mother made.

So that is the end of Day 2 of our Branson trip.
