While we were in Branson, we stayed at the condo that Jeff's parents get one week each summer. Behind the condo there is a creek that feeds into Lake Taneycomo. There is a dock that we can walk down to and people can fish off of it. One of the things the boys wanted to do this summer (and number 9 on our summer list) was to go fishing. So this was our chance.

Look at these two eager fishermen.

Once Jeff got their poles ready, they were off fishing!

This was Lily's first time fishing, so she got some extra help from Daddy. =)

She figured it out pretty quickly though!

Our plans were quickly dashed though when it started pouring down on us!
The kids hadn't caught anything either!

As we walked back to our condo, the rain began to let up a little and the boys thought they might try fishing from the bank right in front of our patio, but it started raining hard again. =(

We decided to give up and go to dinner.
By the time we got down to the Branson Landing, (it is a new water walk that is a really cool place for shopping and eating) the sun was shining and there was not a raindrop to be found!

After dinner, we walked to the fountains.
They have a fire and water show every evening.

Lily liked it until this started happening:

The boys however, loved the fire shooting high up in the air!

After we came back, it was still clear, so we decided to try fishing one more time.

They didn't catch any fish, but they had a lot of fun.
(Don't feel too sorry for them, they all caught fish later on in the week when we went to Table Rock Lake.)
More on our vacation to come soon!
