My Trip To Branson- By Jimmie Gravitt

So a few weeks ago Mom and Dad took me down to the lake house. Grandpa and Grandma (Rod and Kathy) have a house down there close to all of the action of Branson.

This is Table Rock Lake where we have the house.

While we were there I did lots of fun things.

There is this super cool duck ride . . .

We got to ride in this awesome amphibious vehicle.

I waited and waited to get on that cool lookin thing.

While I was waiting I played with my duck bill kazoo . . .

I make a very cute duck if I do say so myself.

We saw the Branson Belle while we were on the water. Mom and Dad have been on there before at a dinner theater.

Mom says it'll be a while before they brave taking me to one of those shows. I'm not sure why. I'm sure I'd add a lot to the entertainment for everyone there. I can walk, I can run, I can squawk and squeal really really loud. I'm sure I'd be a hit. (-:

We also went on a boat ride through a mine!! It was dark and cool in there. And the best thing was it echoed really loud when I squealed!

I sat on my Grandpa's lap and saw the sights . . .

I saw miners. This guy got some water dumped on his head.

I wasn't sure what to think about everything . . .

Guess what we are lookin at here?

A TRAIN! Cool huh . . .

Me, my Grandpa and my Dad thought so. Us Gravitt boys looked at it and discussed how it works. My Auntie thinks this picture is all kinds of awesome!

We also went to a butterfly palace.

For a second I thought I might have to freak out cause they reminded me of my biggest fear- birds! But then I got brave and decided I was not scared of them flying around my head.

At the end of the day we saw the Fiery Fiddles. That music just made my feet restless and my legs jumpy. I wanted to be up and movin. I mean that music is not meant for sittin. I guess I couldn't be free though cause Grandpa Rod just walked with me back and forth back and forth back and forth... As soon as I started letting my pesky heavy eyelids close for a rest it was all over for me and I fell asleep.

When we came out of the show I woke up and it was raining like crazy!! We were a ways away from our car and it would not let up-- so dad finally put me in the stroller, put the sun shade down over me and we ran! I stayed pretty dry. Everyone else got really wet!! Tee heee that was fun!

Unfortunately I wasn't feeling well that weekend I had a virus I was fightin. My food didn't taste good and my throat hurt. I didn't eat so well. I try- especially for my momma cause it makes her so happy, but sometimes I just need a break. Momma did good though and didn't freak out. She still tried to have fun. Good job momma!

I saved the best picture for last. The photo guy tried to get my mommy to buy it. She never does, but I saw it and grabbed and held on to it. I LOVED it. I looked and looked at it. I guess my mom thought it was so precious that I liked it so much that she bought it! I love my family!

Well guys that's it about my trip to Branson, but I do want to let you know that I'm sick again. I have a fever and a sore throat. Mom and Dad have it too. )-: Pray for us k? Also my poor mommy's foot is still really painful and 2 of her toes are numb. She's havin a hard time right now and needs to be taken care of herself.

Thanks so much for your prayers!
