This Sunday my sister is graduating from high school. Hard to believe that we are both done with school and will be moving on to bigger and better things. She left Monday morning to go on her senior trip and it brought up memories from a year ago (hard to believe!!) of my senior trip. So I thought I would share some pictures (poor quality from my phone LOL pre nice camera!) and a few stories!
So each year the seniors at West Nodaway get to go on a senior trip. Unfortunately since we can't leave the state the only place anyone ever goes is to Branson. At first I was like woo hoo this is going to suck but it ended up being lots of fun!
We started out the trip by going to Lamberts, home of the thrown rolls, to eat lunch. If you haven't been it's lots of fun and they have some great décor and food! Plus while you are waiting for the food you ordered they bring around big pans full of food for you to snack on like fried okra. Then if you need a roll you either hold your hands up or yell at the waiter and they throw the rolls across the room. It's really fun.
My Food :) Chicken and dumplings
We stayed at this resort in little 4 bedroom condos. They were really nice with a little kitchen and a back porch balcony. It had a great view over looking I think was Table Rock lake.

There was a duck wondering around below us!
Some of the activities that we did was we went mini golfing and laser tagging one night, we went on a pizza cruise, zip lining, took an old time photo, went to the Hollywood wax museum place which had mini golf and a "haunted ride" (notice the quotes it wasn't that scary). My favorite thing that we did was go shopping at the Branson landing. I didn't go to any of the stores that were at the actual landing because they were just name brand stores that are everywhere. When we were driving to the landing I noticed a street of antique stores and local more low key stores. So I hiked up there and went shopping and really enjoyed it. If I would have had the money I would have bought a truck load of stuff. We also went to Mel's hard luck diner where the waiters and waitresses sing during your meal. Where the diner was were some more shops where I did buy some Montana Silversmiths earrings.
All the pictures above are from the Hollywood Mini golf/wax museum.
This was one of my finds in an antique store. I was so mad when I couldn't take it home I didn't have enough money!!
This was taken from the boat we had the pizza cruise on. It was a lovely trip with beautiful scenery.
This is a pic of one of my friends zip lining. There were like 8 or 9 series of zip lines and boy it was really high up. There was even a line that was a 1/4 of a mile long if I remember right.
It was a great time that I will treasure forever. I was lucky enough to have an awesome class and for the most part we got along great. But it's time to move on to new and better things!
