See the photo above? Not exactly the scenery we hoped to see on our little weekend trip to Branson on Friday. This was a first for me....snow in May! If we hadn't already made our reservations, I daresay we might have cancelled. Not only did we see snow, we saw quite a bit of light rain. And very chilly temperatures.
We decided to go to Silver Dollar City Saturday morning. It was the last weekend for the World Fest. We walked around the park a while and ate lunch, watched a group from Ecuador play their instruments, which was very good, and also stopped in at the old cabin to listen to the Homestead Pickers. However, around 1:30 we decided the rain and cold was too much for us, so we left and headed downtown to look around. We also stopped in at the Hard Luck Diner for one of their old fashioned sodas and listened to the singing waiters/waitresses.
We were back in our hotel pretty early. And let me tell you, their pillow top mattresses were soooo soft that I got really comfy very quickly! I started reading a new cookbook I bought that looked interesting at Mulberry Mill....doesn't everyone love to read cookbooks?....and hubby tuned in to a basketball game. We both were soon sound asleep and when we woke up, it was too late to go out to dinner! Luckily I had packed a few snacks to tide us over.
Sunday, we had breakfast and headed home. We stopped at an antique/flea market along the way. I didn't see anything that I couldn't live without, so we were soon on the road again. I'd like to say we had a great time, but with the weather so crummy, it would be a stretch to call it "great". I hardly ever took my camera out of the bag. Hope your weekend was better than mine!
Until next time...
