My hubby and I had taken my Momma to OK City last Wed. to meet my sister to have her go home with her to Texas to have a change. She (due to the Alzheimers) is still thinking my Dad is alive and should be home. She is doing as well as can be expected and we are happy about that. Thank you so so so much for all your thoughts and prayers. I continue to read the kind notes that give me strength.
My family (minus Z) had planned to go to Branson, MO earlier but we postponed with all of the unexpectedness that has come. R and I now have a new philosophy..."Make plans but be prepared to change plans at any given moment!" It's a more realistic and true way of life!
I put pics on (they are in a crazy mixed up order...kind of how I live!!! Simplicity is also a new philosophy. "Don't sweat the small stuff"...I love that!
Succotash ....ONE of our favs...

What a great place to eat...we did breakfast and then went upstairs to the most adorable giftshop!!

Fire and water show at Branson Landing!!
Tablerock Lake...one of our family's favorite things to do. This trip we took our SeaDoo and we rented a pontoon. Our good friends brought their ski boat and there were 13 of us. We cruised down to Cricket Creek, AR via Tablerock and it is smooth glasslike water there. We had a blast just playing in the water and skiing and tubing!
