Our little trip

Ryan took off work Friday (miracle!) so we could take Macauley down to Branson and stay at the Hilton on the Landing. Ryan and I have stayed there a couple of times and Macauley was really excited to swim in the pool and stay in a hotel. He really had his heart set on being on the top floor for "the view" but we ended up on the second. Still, he got enough elevator time throughout our stay and liked our king condo.

After checking in, we shopped on the Landing a little. Macauley got a Bolt and a Mittens stuffed animal, a Bolt book and a Wall-E t-shirt at The Disney Store.

Is he really over 42" tall? According to the pirate at the playground, he is. Again with the melancholy...he's just getting so big and grown up...

The Landing really is a nice place to go, and only about half an hour from our house. The weather wasn't the best, but not as bad as we thought it might be. I mistakenly left Ryan's clothes at home when I packed (they were hanging and I only tossed in the few things he had folded) so he only had one outfit the whole time and no jacket. Sorry.

We spent the rest of the late afternoon at the indoor pool and spa. Macauley was thrilled, but that place was so loud! There were several people in there, and I guess the sound just carried because even Ryan got a headache and he never gets headaches. Macauley swam/dog paddled a little on his own and made a couple of little friends that he jumped off the side with over and over.

The three of us went to dinner at Cantina Laredo--super yummy Mexican food. Macauley kept complaining that his stomach hurt though, so the meal wasn't as peaceful as others Ryan and I have had there. We thought we'd go to a movie afterward, but Macauley said he was sleepy (what???) and wanted to get "back home" to the room, so we went to the Branson Wal-Mart to find the next Twilight book for me to read instead. Couldn't find it there, so I got an US Weekly. (I got New Moon when we got back into town today so I can start it tonight after we watch the movie--I tell you, the story just pulls you in...)

We slept in this morning, did a little more shopping and then had lunch at Waxy O'Shea's Irish Pub. Ryan loved his corned beef and cabbage. We went to Tanger for a bit then headed back to Springfield, thinking poor Booker was lonesome at the house without us even though Lindsay checked in on him several times. Not too long after we made it back the snow started and Macauley headed straight next door to Megan's. Just one more day of Spring Break then back to school...
