Spring Break In Branson – Day 4

March 22nd, 2009

Today was our last day, so we had to cut it short. We stopped by the Titanic Museum. They wouldn’t allow any cameras, so we didn’t get any pictures. We did stop at one of the local diners on the main street for lunch though and we got to meet Elvis!

Chinese New Year

January 26th, 2009

The weather was horrible today. It was a wintery mix! The roads were too dangerous to drive on, so we didn’t get to go to The Chinese New Year celebration at the Royal Dragon with the Eng Family tonight. Daddy still brought home some treats, including some lucky money envelopes, of course!
