The tall building in the distance is a Hilton Hotel where we enjoyed a steak dinner the last evening we were here and the building where I am standing to take this image is also a Hilton Hotel . I think it's easy to say Hilton has control of downtown Branson, Missouri.
In front of the hotel in the distance is the Branson Scenic Railway train station.
It was wonderful to be able to park the car and walk wherever we wanted to go for the limited amount of time we were in town.
Downtown Branson sure has changed since we were first here!
More to come....

If you visited Branson, Missouri, several years ago and go back today you may not recognize the place. This was our fourth trip to Branson.
The first time we visited Branson was about 20 years ago when it was a small town with locally owned restaurants and shops. This shopping area near the lake is new to us this trip. We enjoyed strolling past the shops and stopping to buy some souvenirs.
We returned the next day for lunch. Stay tuned for those images. :)

We had a lovely dinner here at the Fish House with our friends, Martha and Russell. They are hard to see up there in the shade, but they are waiting for Kjell and me to take pictures of the restaurant before joining them to go inside.
Kjell and I ate here last year when we were in Branson.
This time the dinner was delicious, the view lovely, and the company so much fun!
All the best,

Ready for a train ride? We were here last year (images here), but this time returned with our friends, Martha and Russell for another time around
The two hour ride went all too fast!

We enjoyed being a part of Bob's CNC participation in the Ozarks Mini Makers Faire in Springfield, Missouri.
In the image above you see one of two Bob's CNC machines set up for demonstration.
What a fabulous time we had at the Ozarks Mini Makers Faire!
All the best,

This is Juno, the greeter at OP Wood in Springfield, Missouri. Some of us who were attending the events with Bob's CNC visited this specialty store to see (and buy!) some beautiful woods for carving.
Juno was wonderful therapy for me because I was missing our Penny and other pups so terribly while we were away.

On and near the property owned by Bob's CNC (see yesterday's post) are buildings that were part of Brighton, Missouri, in the mid 1800's.
How many stories do these buildings hold? Fascinating!

This is Bob.
We had a great road trip to Brighton, Missouri, to meet Bob and attend Bob's CNC First Family Reunion. We are honored to be considered part of the family.

Happy Birthday to our beautiful daughter, Catherine.
The picture above is a flashback to earlier this year when she had our Baby Elsa at her office. A client snapped this picture and sent it to Catherine just this past week.
Elsa is nine months old now, a whole lot bigger, and just as sweet and lovey as she was the moment she was born.
Happy Birthday, dear daughter!

I snapped this picture with my phone camera as we were passing St. Louis at about 60 mph.
Quite a few years ago daughter Catherine and I had a girl's trip to St. Louis over a long weekend. We went up in the arch in those tiny little carts.
We also had a lovely dinner aboard one of those riverboats by the arch.
It was a fun trip, but I'll skip the trip up in the arch next time!

During our road trip my fingers kept moving while My Honey was driving!
Above is the beginning of what I first thought would be a crochet scarf, but I changed my mind while making it.
Thanks so much for your encouragement, likes and shares here on the blog and on Facebook, as well as your favorites and purchases in our shop, EvensensProductions.com. You are so very appreciated!
What are you making, baking, and growing this week?

When we pulled up along side this oversize load I told My Honey it was surely our dream house going down the road.
Actually, it was only half of our dream house. The other half was about a mile ahead of it.
