Branson MO vacation Nov 2010

Hubby took me to Branson MO for my birthday trip this year.  We had a great time.
Everyone is so nice and such fun things to do.  We got to see three shows.
1) Andy Williams Christmas Show 2) Tony Orlando and the Lennon Sisters Christmas Show and 3) Paul Revere & the Raiders show.  All the shows were great each one so different from the next.  We also went to the Titanic Museum, The Hollywood Wax Museum & The Toy Museum.  Below is a photo from the Hollywood Wax Museum.  Do you recognize the folks?  John Wayne, Elvis, Lucy & Charlie Chaplin. 
So great to travel in the Fall, the trees were just beautiful.  I loved being in the Ozarks.

 Here's my hubby in a huge rocking chair. 
 Here I am at Mel's Hard Luck Diner.  We went for breakfast. Had a great time. They have singing waiter's and waitresses.  We met a lovely girl named, Kelly Bryant.  She sang so lovely.  She sang I'll Be Home For Christmas and I cried in my eggs. hah (could be menopause, not sure hah)  We bought one of her cd's she was just delightful.
 This is an amazing toy museum.  They must have millions of toys. Both new and old.  I loved seeing all the toys I had as a child.  Wish Nick's, barbie's, trains, they truly have everything.

 This is the marquee for Andy Williams.  We ate at his restaurant Moon River before the show. It was so good. Delicious food.  Packed house.  Andy is getting older but he still has that amazing voice.
The dancer's were teenagers and they had on the neatest outfits.  You felt like they were really in the snow and skating and dancing along to the Christmas songs.  It was really wonderful.  Then he closed the night with Moon River ~  yes time to cry again !
 Here is my hubby with Paul Revere, he put on such a great show. We laughed until our bellies truly hurt.
Hubby loved it.
 This is a great Five & Dime, just like the old days.  This is in Downtown Branson. 

 This was a quilt in the Lobby of the Andy Williams Show.  A lady makes them every year. It has one solider from every state, that sadly died.  She has the family of the solider send her a photo from when they were children and she makes the quilt.  Hubby and I were so moved.  It really brings home just how much of a sacrifice our soliders make for our freedom.  To see these little faces and know the cost they willing paid for us.  So very touching.  We took photo's of the soliders from NY & NJ for each of us.
 This is the world's largest violin. You can't see in the photo but the string portion sticks way outside the building.  It is something to see. 
 This is Dick Clark's restaurant.  Hubby loved it so we ate there twice.  Yummy food.
Lot's of nostalgia.  They play  American Bandstand shows on the tv's while you eat.  Brings back so many memories.
Thank you to my hubby for treating me to such a wonderful vacation.  Really really enjoyed it.
