And the Planning Continues

In just about four years hubs will get an extra two weeks of paid vacation at work. When this happens, we are going on a trip. originally, We had planned for a cruise, but, as horrible as the thought is, Will my Mother and father in law be capable of watching our children while we go off into the sunset?

At the rate things are going, I doubt it. Therefore, we will save the cruise for when the children are much much older, and instead plan an awesome family vacation. I'm not a big fan of Disney, so that is out, but after researching online, I discovered Branson. Well. I personally, Did not discover it, but someone did, and I sure appreciate that they did.

Branson offers a huge variety of things to do.

  • They are the Live music capital of the world
  • Branson has several theme parks - the Silver Dollar City looks especially fun!
  • There are state parks, water rides and Go Karts
  • Caves and caverns are just waiting to be explored AND by the time we can go, all my boys will be old enough to join us on this one!
  • And of course, there is the shopping.
My biggest worry about going on a vacation is the planning. I worry that I will not plan enough money or time. I worry that I will pack the wrong type of clothing and where we will eat.

Branson, though, offers vacation packages for both couples and families.

The package I would buy is the
4 Days/3 Nights
Presidential Condo
2 adult ; 2 kids tickets (ages 4 - 11 yrs) to:
Darren Romeo
Ride the Ducks
Hamner Barber Variety Show

At under 1000 for this packages, it is very affordable, affordable enough that I would be able to extend our stay a few days! There is no way I would go all the way to Branson and miss the Caves, I've always wanted to go Spelunking!

What about you guys? Where do you go when it is time to plan a family friendly vacation?

Wow. You could stop by my house and then Sheila's on your way. Just call first and make sure I'm home. Wouldn't want you to make the long drive for nothing.

The caves are are always cool, but Steal-Your-Dollar City isn't what it used to be.

Ironically, for as close as I live to those places, I've never been to either. Pick me up on the way, okay?

I've never been to Branson either. Thought about it a couple times. I think my folks have a timeshare there.
