Branson for the weekend

These pictures are all from the second day of going to Silver Dollar City. Our first day, we got into town about 11:30am, we checked into the "cabin" and headed to Silver Dollar. Within 10min of getting there it started pouring so we found a spot in the bakery and had some dessert. We were gonna do the cave to kill time until the rain passed but Micah was really restless so we decided I'd take him back to the cabin. The rain was gone by the time we were leaving the park but started pouring JUST before we were ready to leave the cabin to meet back up with David and the kids :( So Micah and I got soaked and met everyone else at the gate also soaked to the bone and a bit cold. The lovely part was that since we were only staying for one night David and I only had the jeans we were wearing, no change. So David put on his swim trunks and I put on my PJ bottoms so he could take them to a dryer on site and dry our clothes in order to be able to go out in public for dinner! Needless to say the first day wasn't so great but the second day was MUCH better.
Boy, what we won't do for our kids! We saw all kinds of parents stuffed into these kiddy rides so that their smaller children could ride :)

Caleb was so proud of himself that he was brave enough to ride things ALL BY HIMSELF!
Ethan and Brianna took turns on different rides riding with Micah. He'd want to ride them so bad then start crying while they were waiting for it to start, and then calm down shortly after it started and realized it wasn't so scary ;)

I didn't get any videos of this, but these are those big swings. David rode with Caleb and Brianna and Ethan rode seperately......Brianna realized she did NOT like it :( Just like her mama!

Ethan waiting to ride a ride that spins and swings.

This was Micah's pass time while waiting and watching Ethan on the last ride :) Not sure WHY he decided to suck on David's hair, but at least it was clean ;) LOL

This was Caleb's first "real" rollercoaster. He had ridden the "baby" rollercoaster, but this was the real deal :) He LOVED it and made some of the cutest faces, his first comment though was, "That was too short."
We left the park after this last ride as it was starting to sprinkle and we didn't really want to have to wear PJ pants and swim trunks on the drive home ;)

Your pics are so cute and make me want to drop everything and go to SDC right now! We're taking our crew out there in October, which seems sooo far away! I love SDC, we went there every year when I was a kid, and now we take our kids. I think its the best place in the world to take kids!
