Branson Vacation 2011: Day 1

This weekend, we took an awesome trip to Branson, Missouri with Grammie and Papa Michel and Chris and Jaime Vanderbeck.  We had a fantastic time!!  It'll probably take me a few blogs to tell you all about it.

We left early on Thursday morning and actually headed out of town on time (gasp!).  We got to Kansas City by 10:30 a.m. and walked around the Legends shopping area to stretch our legs and take a break from the car.  Ledger especially loved playing in the fountain.  You can see a video of it here.  Uncle Josh joined us for lunch.  It was pretty awesome of Josh to drive all the way out there just to hang out with Ledger and eat with us.  We tried to eat at the "T Rex" restaurant, but the giant animatronic dinosaurs scared the crap out of Ledger.  We ended up leaving after we had already been seated and ordered drinks because he just couldn't handle it.  So, we ate at Five Guys and we loved the burgers and fries.  YUM! :)
Ledger was pretty terrified by the dinosaurs.
We arrived in Branson and were greeted by Grammie and Grandpa.  They reserved us an amazing room at the Hilton on Branson Landing. We got ourselves settled just in time for Jaime and Chris to arrive and for us all to make our way to dinner at Shorty Smalls restaurant.  Of course, Ledger had to stop at the playground at the mall on the way to dinner.
