DJ and I went to Branson last weekend. We left about 5:00 on Friday night and got back about 7:30 on Sunday night. We didn't take Makenna, we left her with his parents. It was the first time we have ever left her overnight and for more than one day. She did really well and surprisingly so did I. We had a great time. We haven't been on vacation since the week before I found out I was pregnant with Makenna so it has been a long time. We really needed some time away. We stayed in a really nice hotel in Branson Landing. That is an area with restaurants and stores. It was really nice. Saturday we got up early and went to one of the outlet malls. We shopped all day. We had a great time. Of course we bought Makenna a ton of stuff. Before we left we measured the waist and length of her clothes because she is so hard to fit. She has a ting waist and long legs. So we only found two pairs of pants that fit her but that is pretty good for her. We're usually lucky if we find one pair. We bought her several dresses, some onesies, some summer shirts, and two pairs of sandals. DJ got four polos at the Ralph Lauren Outlet. That is one of the few things he will pay a lot of money for. He has tried lots of different shirts but those are the only ones that fit him right and they look great on him. And they were having a major sale. Saturday night we went to a show called The Haygoods. It is 7 brothers and 1 sister. They can all play multiple instruments, sing and tap dance. It was awesome. We loved it. Sunday we slept in and then went to the other outlet mall. It was a nasty day outside. It was freezing and really windy. This outlet mall wasn't near as good as the first one but we bought a few things. It took us longer to get home than we thought because there was a bad accident. We would have loved to stay on vacation longer but we were both missing Makenna a lot and ready to get home to see her. It was a wonderful trip and I'm so glad we went. I'll be ready for another vacation soon.
