Branson Weekend Getaway

Last weekend Ian & I went up to Branson for a weekend getaway. We spent most of the day at White Water – a huge water park!
WW SignSaturday was 97* out which is incredibly hot for us Seattle natives

Ash and Ian wave poolWe had the most fun relaxing in the wave pool or floating the lazy river but we did make sure to go on every ride there including…

WW RideThis scary ass drop one. When you get on it at the top, you cannot see down at all! Ian & I weren’t going to do it but we saw 7-8-year-olds doing it so then we hadddd to!

We went on another ride where you stood up and they took the floor out from underneath you so you fell down the water tubes, I definitely peed a little bit. I wish I would have gotten a picture of it but even thinking about it makes my stomach drop.

It worked out well that a friend of Ian’s was in Branson the same weekend and they were able to get us a room at their timeshare. It was SO nice. The place we stayed had basketball courts, disc golf, jacuzzis, firepits, a huge pool with a bar, the grounds was amazing. I kept asking Ian if we had to leave haha

Another great weekend in the books! I’m having the best time exploring all the new areas we now live by. Nothing beats a fun, relaxing weekend with my babe. Can’t wait for the next!

Memorial Weekend on the Farm

Ian & I decided to spend our Memorial Day weekend at his grandpa’s farm in Missouri & we had the best time! Ian hasn’t visited since he was a kid in ’99 yikes 🙂  so it was overdue for him to go back. His grandpa has 88 acres of land & it is real farmland y’all.

His grandpa drove us around to where he grew up and it was so sweet listening to his stories from when he was younger. He showed us a church his grandpa actually helped build & it was beautiful! It’s crazy to imagine that area 50+ years ago with dirt roads and one grocery store. It makes me wonder what everything will be like 50+ years from now when I’m showing my grandbabies around.

I am so thankful we took this weekend to spend with his grandpa. We met some wonderful people and Ian got to see some extended family members he hasn’t seen since he was little. It was a beautiful, relaxing, Memorial weekend!

Now time to rest up because next weekend we are headed to Dallas for our next roadtrip!
