Kids kickin' it at the Showboat Landing

What a special treat! We attended the Showboat Branson Belle  with Gammy and Pa today. They celebrated their 63rd wedding anniversary! Congratulations!

We went down and got our tickets for the 4:00 boat and then headed into town for lunch and some mini-golf. Lunch was much friendlier this time compared to the Little House Buffet! The waitress reminded us of my Aunt Kathy D’Amico. We golfed at Prof. Hacker’s Dinosaur Canyon Golf in Branson with 86 degree weather, but I just love the creative and fun golf places of warm climates!

Onboard the Belle we had a yummy dinner of Cordon Bleu, veggies, beef tips, and mashed potatoes before the evening’s entertainment started. On tap for the evening? Showstoppers dancing, music, acrobats, and Todd Oliver and Friends. The evening was fantastic and we were doubly blessed in that they didn’t charge at all for Jordan to attend since he wouldn’t be eating! (You know never what is possible unless you ask…) PTL!

Reflecting on our favorites:

Bekah: “I loved all of it.”

Jordan: “The best part I loved was the talking dogs.”

Ashley: “The entire show. I thought the dogs were funny and I like the singing.”

Broadway show tunes that were performed by the band, and sung and danced by the Showstoppers included: Grease, Footloose, Fiddler on the Roof, CATS, Little Mermaid, Mama Mia, Hairspray, Risky Business and so many others. Prior to the show starting, we had some time to wander the boat during which we went up into the pilot house. Fun stuff! The wheel was gigantic!
