We spent a long weekend in Branson, and arrived home this Monday. We went to a few shows, some of us rode a zip line, and we hung out. It was a lovely time, just getting to chill together.
We drove down to Branson on Thursday, arriving around 4 p.m. After unpacking and having dinner at Red Lobster, we went and saw the Chinese acrobats at the Shanghai Circus. Very fun!
While we were at Red Lobster, I decided that it would be fun to take pictures of the food that I ate out at restaurants. A fun thing to do for somebody who loves food, right? Well, I followed this up by forgetting my camera the next day (which meant that I didn’t get any photos of that meal), and eating my entire meal at the next restaurant before I remembered that I should have taken a picture. The third time I didn’t even think about taking a picture. In fact, I didn’t realize that I missed the third meal until now. I’m real great at remembering to take pictures of my food, eh? I wonder what would happen if I tried to do a 365 – it would turn into a 100, if I remembered that often! 😛
On Friday, we went and saw Twice Adopted (it was great!) in the morning, then spent some time walking around downtown Branson. We had lunch at a place down there, and I shared some AWESOME tomato basil soup with Mom. I have to recreate that soon. It was so good. We spent the evening at our condo being together.
We also bought some Pop-Tarts. Now, for all my trying to eat healthy, I LOVE POP-TARTS! I so greatly enjoyed eating Pop-Tarts over the weekend. Mmmmm…
Now for the photos. I forgot my camera on Friday, for which I was most sad. 😦 Most of these are from Thursday, and a few are from Friday night. During intermission at the New Shanghai Circus, Drake and I entertained ourselves with self-portraits, portraits, and random shots. I sure had a blast with those, and I hope you enjoy them, too!
Waiting for food
I ordered the four-course feast, or something like that. It was SO GOOD! Creamy potato soup to start it off…
…and then a salad
The faces Drake often makes for me when I point that camera at him.
Love him – he’s just so funny
Meiling being funny – I’m not sure how to caption these
I think they speak for themselves
My main course, minus the shrimp, which I ate before I remembered to take a picture. Sound familiar? 🙂
Dessert – a brownie. It was very good, despite the fact that it had too much chocolate and caramel syrups
We drove through a Christmas light display before going to the Chinese acrobat show
One of those moments
Fun with the lights
Little Peanut hands
Now here begins the random self-portraits
I know I said this before, but he is SO MUCH FUN
Rows of chairs, red ones specifically, are fun
Drake had a turn with the camera and took a few photos of yours truly. 🙂
Now, photos from Friday night.
Dad purchased this kit to mix your own chip flavors. He likes chips. I like him. 🙂
Drake, making his epic face
The chips, all ready to eat
