~Our 25th Anniversary Getaway~

Falls Lodge, Big Cedar.

Our anniversary getaway began early Monday morning, October 27th, when we drove from our place at Lake of the Ozarks, to Springfield. We had breakfast at Hemingway's Blue Water Cafe, located inside Bass Pro. Hemingway's provides a delicious breakfast buffet.

I thought this sign, at Marshfield, Missouri, was worth recording. This was the lowest fuel price, during our trip.

Arriving in the Branson area, a few hours before we were to check in at Big Cedar, we revisited some of our favorite places.

The photo, below, is the view as we turned into the road that leads to the resort.

A look inside our cabin.
We've stayed in Falls Lodge and cabins, at Big Cedar, previously. Even though the lodges are wonderful, we prefer the cabins.
Tuesday morning, we drove to Eureka Springs, Arkansas. While there, we visited a wonderful shop. Upon our return to Branson, we had lunch here.
An iron skillet of cornbread was served while we were waiting for our meal.

This is the shop we visited in Eureka Springs. We balanced Bass Pro Shop with a bit of lace and sparkle, for me, at Something Simple. It's a beautiful shop. Carol, of Raised in Cotton, published a post about the shop, recently. Click HERE for a look inside.
As we were leaving Eureka Springs, we saw this gorgeous view.

This sign, above the door of a conference center, at Big Cedar, says it all!

The weather was crisp and cool. Perfect for an autumn stay at Big Cedar.

We arrived home, Thursday morning, in time to meet Noah, Xanti and their Mom, Kim, at Eagle Fork Farm. Noah, dressed as a penguin, certainly enjoyed his first Hallow e'en. Gabi and Drew visited us, Hallow e'en, during the day. Drew was to be Steve of Blue's Clues, but decided he liked being a spider, too!
This chandelier hangs in one of my favorite shops, in Branson. I found a couple of things to decorate the "new" dining room, for Christmas. More photos of this shop, in an upcoming post.
