Hello to all, and Happy Spring! We said we would start traveling on December 1st and we did until now. Again we have seen some amazing things and we have met some amazing people also. Oh yeah, and KatyDid got married!
Well, I think I will have to break up this blog up in to multiple parts, since we have seen so much. So here we go.
We started out by going to one of our favorite places for Christmas, Branson, MO. We started by going to a few shows. First the Dixie Stampede where to food is always great and the action is even better. Second we went to the Sight and Sound theater where the play the Miracle of Christmas was showing. If you have not been to a Sight and Sound theater before, you should put it on your bucket list now. Then of course we went to Silver Dollar City where there are shows behind every door, and roller coasters to ride between them. Silver Dollar City is an 1800's themed park with people dressed in period dress and others preparing the most amazing food, which fills the park with the smells of pure bliss. Did I forget to mention that the park was called the most illuminated park on earth by USA Today. It has over 12 million lights. We finished up our visit by going to SIX and finally taking a dinner cruise on the Showboat Branson Belle.

Then we were headed to Alabama and on to South Carolina. We spent a few days there and then headed to Nebraska for Christmas! Nothing really eventful happened during this time, because we were visiting with family and friends.

Now the trip back to Colorado via Minnesota, South Dakota and Wyoming simply because we had not been to these states yet. So, we finally made it to Mt. Rushmore and the Badlands of South Dakota. Absolutely Awesome! I am sure the Badlands are nice in the Summer but in the winter with snow on them they were Outstanding. The bighorn sheep and Barbary sheep were like pets almost. We almost had both parks to ourselves also because not too many people go to these places in the winter. I will stop this section here and pick back up in January.
