The McLoughlins Go on the Road Day Two! #VacationInBranson #RonaldReagan

Tuesday in Branson found us with a hodge podge of things to do. Everyone asked us before we went if we were going to a show or White Water or Silver Dollar City and we were like NOPE. I would love to do all those things (Dixie Stampede!), but they cost a lot of money, so not right now. If we are going to drop a wad of cash, we are going to do it at Promised Land Zoo or on Ride the Ducks. And we did. But those are other days so stay tuned! Here's Tuesday in pictures.

Making our lunch before heading out saved a ton of cash

Joel and I dropped everyone off at Stockstill Park and went to WalMart for swim suits. Nothing fit busty me, but Joel found something right away and we did some more damage there before coming back to the park to have our lunch

Michael and Callie playing with "toadrums" ...capture the tiny frogs then let them hop out of the bowl they found at the creek. When I was their age I loved tadpoles caught from Yogi Bear's huge basket at the old Jellystone Park in Branson

Crick fun

At Castle Rock Waterpark day one and I got the kids Dippn Dots, which I never do

Later we did Bumper Boats. Eva impressed us by getting in a boat alone b/c of stupid mean rules and she didn't want to do it but she did it anyway and had a blast. Sam and I rode together and all got WET! Wild Woody's has a mean female manager, though ... just sayin'. She was super rude to my family.

At Dessert Station across from Andy's ... please support them! They are family owned and have been there 20 years! Look for the huge Ronald Reagan and tell them Kerrie sent you!

Ice cream rocks!

Gotta get another Ronald Reagan shot. Good dude.
Here's Day One in case you missed it
And what we think of Castle Rock Waterpark
