HolaHolaHola Beautifuls!
Ok, Ok, Si, the collage is a bit busy, but then again, so were we!!!
The fabuloso friends of #BloggingBranson had our plates full on this final dia.
Y speaking of full plates...

Stone Castle Breakfast Buffet
Sweetie's Happy Face, the only reason he'd get up early. A good breakfast.

Fully rested and knowing he was going to have a good desayuno, Sweetie was ready for his two servings of breakfast. They switch up the types of fresh fruit and fresh baked muffins, pero the main elementos of scrambled eggs, country gravy, sausage, biscuits, waffles, cereals and coffee were the same. Delicioso. So just one go round?  JU SO FONII!!  Especially since today he was going to play catch up on missed activities. 

And catch up he did!! We went back to Beyond the Lens because we knew he'd love it. (ok, because we wanted to do some things again too.) Naturally he had to take pics with the alien and Big Foot, play virtual, electronic basketball (had to drag him from that one), pose in the GI Joe box, play some Skeeball, read EVERY SINGLE Kennedy conspiracy, took in the simulated oval office and sat in the president;s chair.  We had to rush him a bit at the end, porque although it was in the same edificio, we had an appointment to go on FLYRIDE, and BB was not about to miss out on that! 

Although, looking at this picture you might think otherwise...

What you see Sweetie hanging onto is a pic of the seats used in the ride. They move and help simulate flight through different regions. Along with air currents, water spray and sound, you truly do feel as if on a magic carpet in faraway places. So realistic que BB is rethinking the rapid water rafting item on her bucket list... Seriously, this ride is worth signing up for and glad Sweetie took his Dramamine. It's very well done.

And speaking of well done, a show that has held it's own for years...

 “It’s good ol’ Country & Western music, with a tad of Doo-Wop, Patriotic and Gospel mixed in.  Expect Country Music past, present, and way cool.  Everything from Ghost Riders in the Sky and Johnny Cash to Aaron Tippin and Diamond Rio. 

 The harmonies this band of brothers produces are a treasure richer than all the gold in California."

And they ain't just whistlin' La Guantanamera Beautifuls!
True to life hermanos, they have been performing together since childhood and it shows.  The good natured jokes and jabs, it's like being in a family reunion- of a very talented familia. BB can just see them as niños...

Little One was most amused and amazed by the bagpipes...

 The years have their timing and tuning down to a T, the harmony impressive and at times hair raising at the perfection.  A not so simple talent that is truly a gift. 

Ask them what the gift is and they share it's God, Familia and Country. 
As Babushka said Beautifuls, it's like being in a family reunion. 

Y speaking of family reunions, Cubanos are known for their "cajitas" of food in fiestas. That's where the finger foods are served in individual boxes so they'll be protected from the elements, distributed evenly, and be easier to take home.  BB uses this to explain why she didn't partake of the included BBQ; we were waiting to be served during intermission. Apparently it was served before the show. We saw the ends of it when we came in, but we figured halftime so everyone stays...

Oh well, barriga empty pero corazon lleno.  It's a show worth seeing, even without the food. And from Babushka, you know that means mucho.

Hughes Brothers Country Show

If the Hughes are the understated downhome family, the Haygoods are completamente opposite!  This familia of 5 hermanos and one sister got their start listening to their padre's 60's lp records and remastering them acoustically. And Babushka does mean master them Beautifuls! Raised in the Ozarks they share their downhome roots, but in no way are they understated.

What they are is very talented, in many ways and on many diferente instrumentos!
 Oh, and mountain does not mean not modern. Miren pa' esto- 

Performing Beyonce

They sing, play instruments, tap dance, pero of course they play to an almost capacity theater every time!! Ya figure, to have a favorite show for 28 years, they gotta be doing algo right. Don't pass up this one if you want to be energized and entertained at the same time.  Amazing the variety of songs they cover in their style and they do it so well!! BB garantia that everyone will leave hablando and happy.

Cansada pero Contenta, we headed back to our Castle Casita.
One more noche in the mountains, enjoying todo and feeling blessed.
Hasta Mañana,
