Silver Dollar City!

For those of you who don't know, Silver Dollar City is a music/theme park in Branson, Mo. Zack and I took Zayde this weekend for a day trip to Silver Dollar City. It was the first time we have done anything like this with just the three of us. We had a blast hanging out as a family!!

It was beautiful weather- about 65*, so we rode with the top down and Zayde loved it (for about an hour).



The first thing we did, was take Zayde to a room filled with Styrofoam balls.



This tube sucked the balls up and Zayde loved putting the balls in it.




Zack took Zayde down every slide we could find!



Even though we brought a stroller, this is how Zayde rode most of the day. I think they were really having some daddy-son bonding time, since Zack has been gone so much lately.



We took Zayde on the Silver Dollar City train. He was pretty intrigued, but didn't know what to think at the same time. I just love our family!



...lovin' the slides!






Me and my hubby!



Zayde and Daddy



Zayde and Mommy (We rode the hot air balloon ride that is in the background, but they wouldn't let us have our camera's on the ride. So, no pictures. (I tried to break the rules and sneak my camera on, but Zack wouldn't let me!)

You will love your pics from Brandy-she is soo good.

I did get your card. Thank you very much-that was very thoughtful. It has been encouraging knowing that people are praying for us.

Oh, I just now saw your post about the foreclosed homes. We just happened to drive by it and Robin Duffy called on it for us and she found out it was foreclosed. There are a lot of websites that list foreclosed homes if you just google it. I think there is also a way to get a list mailed to you monthly, but that costs money.

Faith said...

We love S$City! It's about an hour and a half from my parents' house, so we hope to take Rhett this summer and let Alexee hang out w/grandparents! We took R when he was 2 and he had fun then--I think he'd love it now!
