Branson Day 2 and the beginning of the Mitchell Olympics

It's Day 2 of our Branson trip and it's a cooker again!! We slept in this morning and then went with my aunt and uncle to go get fountain drinks from the gas station up the road. When we came back, my other aunt, uncle, and cousin had woken up and we started the "Mitchell Olympics." Every summer reunion, we do our own version of the olympics. We even have a trophy that travels from family to family. We're determined to keep it in our family again this year. Every member brings the necessary items for an event that they choose. So today we did a crossword puzzle, ring toss, "guess how many m&m's are in the jar," and a building contest using marshmallows and spaghetti sticks (sounds easy but it really isn't!!). So that was alot of fun. It may sound weird but we really have a blast with it. So far my Dad's winning. Then we ate lunch and my parents went to this RCI presentation. You get free gift cards and special rates at local attractions if you go. We went swimming while they were at that but the water was so hot it didn't really feel that great!!! Tonight we're going out for dinner and coming back to swim again. I don't really know why i'm writing all of this because I think all but 2 people that read this are here with me! :) I have such a large fan club.. not!! Anyway, we're having a great time just hanging with family, playing games, and laughing. When you get my Dad, aunts, and uncles together there's LOTS to laugh about!! :)
