This blog is about our family, who have dealt with the loss of two sons with Muscular Dystrophy, the adoption of a son diagnosed with Agenesis of Corpus Callosum and the birth our a healthy little girl. It's a crazy life, but we are loving it.

Branson Trip, Post #2 & Happy Father's Day

Here are a few more pics from our Branson trip.

Silver Dollar City was so pretty. I loved the old fashioned feel to it. They had beautiful flowers everywhere.

We rode the train which took us all over SDC. They did a little skit where our train was robbed by two hillbilly brothers, and we were sitting in the perfect seats on the train. They did the whole thing right in front of us. The kids got a big kick out of this.

The guys on the train.

More fun, rides and games...

Right before we left, we let the kids pick out a sweet treat. It was really warm, so they chose an Icee.

On Wednesday afternoon, we went and way the play Joseph.

The theater was beautiful. This production was amazing. They did a really good job in making a Bible story come to life for my children. There were live animals all throughout the play and I loved seeing the excitement and wonder in my children's faces. Of course, they told us up front that they had to add to the story and some characters to the play. But we made sure and told the kids up front that the story of Joseph was absolutely true. 

The kids are still talking about some of the funny parts of the play. When we got home, Emily ran to her room and found the story of Joseph in her Bible and wanted me to read it to her. I love it!!!

We were right up front and on the isle seat, so the animals ran right by us. During intermission, a snack cart was brought in and the kids were allowed to pick a snack with the money they saved for the trip. They enjoyed their king sized skittles and snickers while watching the rest of the play.

All and all we had a great time. The kids enjoyed themselves and loved seeing all the sights. We had a safe trip and I'm glad to be home.

And since today is Father's Day, I want to say Happy Father's Day to two special men.

My dad.

Such a wonderful Godly influence on me, my husband and my children. With a great since of humor to go along with it. I love you Dad! I'm so lucky to have a wonderful father in my life.

And, my hubby.

I adore you! You're a wonderful father, so patient and kind, yet such a strong leader. You have been by my side through the death of our two sons, the adoption of Ethan and the birth of Emily. Your love for the kids and I are unquestionable. I thank God for you all the time.
