Woo hoo! After traveling for about 10 hours yesterday and 3 hours today, we have finally arrived in Branson, Missouri!
We actually got here at about 12:30, stopped for lunch at the Subway in Wal-Mart, and then checked into our room at 2:00. Then we hung around our suite until we went to the 5:00 Saturday Mass at the local Catholic church. Then we went to Sonic (which I haven't been to since we lived in Kentucky, which was about 9 years ago!) and got groceries at Wal-Mart again.
Now we are in our hotel room, and just five minutes ago we had sat down and were watching The Two Towers on TV when all of a sudden, the FIRE ALARM WENT OFF!!!! AGGGHHH! We didn't even have anything turned on! So my dad called the people he was supposed to call (I know I must sound pretty ignorant as I say that but I can't for the life of me remember the name of the people you call for problems!) and apparently he heard people shouting in the background "Code red!" so it was weird. Also, a fire truck pulled up in front of the section of the building where my uncle's room is!!! :o My dad said they probably had to respond. I hope there wasn't a real emergency..... anyways, the alarm has just turned off now. Gosh, that was ear-splitting! :P
So, that was our excitement for the night!
And guess what! I FINISHED MY BERET!!!! And it is sooo cute! :D I wore it to church today and I'm sorely tempted to keep it, but I really need to start making money with my knitting. :P So, I'll wash the beret and put it up on Etsy when I get home. And I'll post pictures of it soon!
I would love to have included pictures of stuff in this post, but I'm too lazy to upload any right now. So y'all will just have to wait until tomorrow. ;)
Until then, my readers, I shall bid you adieu!
