Our Branson Vacation-Day 2

On day two we woke up and hit the Butterfly Palace and Rainforest Adventure. Honestly, it was a bit of a disappointment. The butterflies were neat but, the Rainforest was a bit of a joke.

After the Butterfly Palace, we hit the Titanic Museum. This would have been pretty neat, however, Ella decided to scream THE.WHOLE.TIME! It was awful! After the Titanic Museum, Cody and I decided we needed some wine. Fast! So we found this nice little winery that gave us some samples, and lucky for me, my favorite was on sale. So, of course, I bought some:)

In the evening we had reservations for Dolly Parton's Dixie Stampede. The show was fabulous! The kids were intrigued the whole time. It was great! No screaming. No crying. Just eating and watching. Huge thanks to Dolly!

Kyler and Ella examining the butterflies up close. This butterfly, however, quickly met Ella's maginifying glass up close and personal. RIP sweet butterfly!

Kyler tasting his own "wine." Oh quit freaking out, it was pear juice. It was delicious!

Apparently they are supposed to put the kids juice in paper dixie cups, but the new guy didn't know that, therefore my kids got to drink out of wine glasses. Aren't they lucky!
