I'm sorry it's taken me so long to post about Andrew and my Thanksgiving adventures especially because Christmas is just around the corner! Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays because I get to see my cousins who live all over the United States. This year, my grandparent's hosted Thanksgiving in Branson, Missouri where family members gathered from Arkansas, Tennessee, Utah, Nevada, Missouri, and Nebraska. It was a wonderful week with lotsof great food, board games, wine, conversation, and activities!
Branson offers an abundance of fun things for families to do together. Our activities included riding go-karts, driving through the beautiful Ozark hills to look for wldlife (we saw over 20 deer), shopping, and riding the Mountain Coaster.
The runaway Moutain Coaster was by far my favorite activity that we did this trip to Branson. If you're finding yourself asking "what is a mountain coaster?"... let me tell you! A mountain coaster is exactly as the name implies. It uses the outdoors and natural elevation to provide a really fun ride up and down the mountain! It takes about five minutes to get all the way up to the top and it's a straight shot. Once you're at the top, the carts are released to travel down and the best part is that the driver is in control of how slow or fast you go! You can go down slowly by pulling the break and enjoying the beauty around you or you can do what I did and never touch the breatk! My cousin's girlfriend, Madison, and I road together. We were winding down the hill at lightening speed! It was such a thrill and I'd do it again and again! The total experience lasts about seven minutes and costs $15 to be a driver and $10 to be a rider. I'd highly recommend this adventure if you're ever in the Branson area!
Although we did lots of exciting things the best part of Thanksgiving is spending time with family. I look forward to the holiday season every year! What are some of your favorite places to visit during the holidays?
Remember, always give thanks!
