Branson Bound

We set out last Friday in a caravan of two vehicles for Branson, MO. Mom had flown in the night previous to join us in heading to the Rush Family Reunion. After arriving at our hotel we took a quick swim then joined many Rushes for a pizza dinner. 

The kids were pretty excited about the trip.  I let them cozy up and read together for awhile before bed.  We eventually split them into two beds in our hotel room while Lucas and I joined Joel and Kelly next door in their room for some Settlers of Catan.  We listened in on the kids via a baby monitor and were greatly amused by their whispered conversations about the plans for the next day.

I know there is a day coming before too long where they won't spontaneously hold hands.  Levi is wearing an eye patch he received from Aunt Kathy.
These two are so sweet.
While we waited for Papa to join us (He couldn't fly into Kansas City until Saturday and got to the hotel in the late afternoon.  By the way, did you know that your GPS system of choice won't get you where you want to go if you misspell your destination city?  Also, did you know that there is a Brandon, MO?  My Dad does.) we lived it up.  Nana treated everyone to a day out on the town.  Our first stop was Go-Karts.  It was her first time riding them.  I drove with Milo and will (sheepishly) admit that everyone lapped us and we came in last by a long shot.
Here's most of our little bunch before we got completely wilted by the sun.
There's part of the go-kart track in the background. 
Then it was off to pee-wee golf.  Levi loved it.  He even got a hole-in-one.
Milo took this outing pretty seriously. 
It was so cute.
