Another good day in Table Rock, Missouri.. Daniel woke me again this morning to play until George awoke with Nathan, I then returned to my bed in the dark basement and slept until 12:15, when George brought Daniel in to take a nap. We went to a 3:00 dinner show in Branson at Dolly Parton's Dixie Stampede, and it was quite exciting. While we ate they entertained us on primarily horses; raced pigs, chickens, ostriches, and wagons; and dramatically performed the history of the wild west. The tickets were $48 each, but Sheree's grandma has connections and was able to find us tickets for $12. Jael and Daniel loved the action and the animals and took turns sitting quite impressively tranquil on my lap. Afterwards we went to a really pretty outdoor mall. We rode a tram from the parking lot to the opposite end, then walked back in the shade. We stopped once for ice cream, once to buy a small gift for Sheree's grandparents (who bought our show tickets), and once to use the restrooms in the Bass Pro Shop - my brother's favorite store (it wasn't the same without him.) Geovanni has once again begun his internet quest to find the perfect used Chevy Dimax truck in Ecuador, which keeps the two of us up late at night. He has all these particular wants, which are actually pretty important for driving in the often-turbulent streets of Racar and Cuenca, but make if difficult to find what he wants. In the morning we are leaving for Kansas City, which really should only take 2.5-3 hours this time. My intentions are to wake up early enough to take a swim in the lake with Daniel and Jael.
As promised, here are pictures of the basement treasures::

In order to avoid any potential offending.. these are all nice things, just done in the wrong way or in the wrong place.
