Treasure Hunt!

A little while back we took a trip to Branson.  Now I know what you're thinking.  Bright Lights, Big City,  Shows,  Rides.  And that is all there and we LOVE to do some of it.  But this time around it was for resting and being together. 

My eldest child and I went outlet shopping...something we both   We found there really weren't that many to be had and WHERE OH WHERE did Children's Place go??!!  We loved the new fashions at Ralph Lauren.  Here are a few of my favorites.

Anna Jersey Dress - Blue Label New Arrivals -
Zoe Striped Skirt - Blue Label Skirts -

Helene Silk Pintuck Dress - Blue Label Sale -

Jules Printed Silk Skirt - Blue Label Skirts -

I love blue and this collection was wonderful.   A little pricey but fun to see.

Meanwhile, back at the hotel....this was what was going on  ...

On our way out,  we decided to take a hike.  Literally.  We went to this park in the middle of the city that overlooks Lake Taneycomo.  As we were looking at the lake and the view, 

 we heard the kids talking way above us.  After a short hike up rock steps lined by flower, we came upon this..

It was the Owens Homestead right there in Branson.  Needless to say we had to go all over ther property looking at the different buidlings and structures.  Here are a few pics.

We could house some fine animals in this.  And this next is a picture of my future chicken coop.  Boys,  do you see how it's made?  Go to it!!

We wanted to move right in.  Well,  some of us did.  What a great find in the middle of a busy city. Can't you just imagine yourself walking this road?
