We sent the boy off with the in-laws about 8am and headed back to the house to start tackling our list. My SIL Marcy was nice enough to keep me posted throughout the day on how much fun Chaz was having with all his cousins. He had a blast! And so did the rest of the crew.

The next day, as promised, Ryan and I headed to Branson bright and early to join the family at White Water. I have to say, I was super excited. I love White Water and it gave me the opportunity to get in the water. Always nice for a very preggo woman in 100 degree heat!
On our way we had a few unexpected but necessary stops. As we were traveling through Alpena (Yes, Alpena. Tiny town, look it up) we happened upon something I have wanted for a very, VERY long time. As soon as we saw it Ryan quickly pulled to the side of the road. You see, my brother has had one of these cuties for as long as I can remember. I love him and have never been able to find another one.. well, besides seeing one on some random person's front porch....to which Ryan forbid me from stealing. Whatever. Anyways, my husband knew he was not getting anywhere without purchasing this little guy. Did I mention I love him? GO HOGS!!
The second stop was just as random.. Turtle. Cute little guy and a nice husband who just can't go on leaving a turtle in the middle of the road. Yes, I married a good one.
As always, White Water was very good to us and the boy was sacked out before we were even out of the parking lot. What a great day!
