I Need a Vacation

Ok, I'm starting to feel a little burned out.

Between work, and still dealing with the aftermath of our last miscarriage, my mental health is on the line here.

Our last vacation was a year ago - the Disney trip.  I would give ANYTHING to be able to go back this year but we've made the final decision to wait until next year to go back, so we can save up the money to go all out like we want to.  Plus, we're hoping that MAYBE, just MAYBE I will need to save my vacation time for an extended absence by the end of the year.....????

Thankfully - my sister and her husband have GRACIOUSLY invited Owen and I to go on a trip with them to Branson for a few days the first week of May.  This will be an adults only trip.  Don't get me wrong - I love Samantha with ALL that I am, but sometimes - mommies and daddies need a break.  It helps make us better parents :)  My BIL's parents have a timeshare so we will be staying at the Falls Village resort in Branson (no charge to us!!!).  Take a look at this:



Looks inviting, doesn't it??  How about this one:


OH yeah.  Branson is located in the Ozark Mountains; this view is breathtaking!!!!!

Branson is known for it's seemingly endless supply of live shows, but to be honest - I'm not into that stuff.  And we are for SURE not going to the Dixie Stampede, my sister has made that very clear!!!  I think she and I might go to a spa one day while the guys rent a boat and play on the lake, and we will probably try to take a trip to Silver Dollar City one day as well.  But I would really just be happy eating some good food and hanging out by the nice looking pool, reading a good book, NOT being at work!!!

Any of you been to Branson?  This will be our first trip; feel free to leave me some suggestions!!!
