Silver Dollar City

We were scheduled to sing in Kansas last Sunday, and since it was pretty close to Branson we talked about celebrating Dad's birthday by leaving a day early and visiting Silver Dollar City.  Before we could go we had a large irrigation job to do in Colorado. We headed out Wednesday and after 2 big days the job was finished, and we were headed home. We made a quick two hour stop at home to unpack and repack, then we headed to Branson! It was a very quiet trip down since pretty much everyone, except the driver, was sleeping.

We pulled into town Saturday morning and headed to the Bluegrass and BBQ Festival at Silver Dollar City! It rained in Kansas, so Alan and Rachel were able to join us in Branson. We all know how fast children grow, but hearing Kendrick's new words and seeing Autumn's smiles was a treat! It was so good to catch up and spend some time together.

It was such a special day, being together, celebrating Dad's birthday, riding rollercoasters, eating good food, getting soaked on the water rides and just sitting down and trying to catch up from the week. Everyone was sooo tired of walking by the end of the day!

Of course a friendly competition is always in order...

A few of us had races to see who could get their (fake) frog to fall off the end first by cranking water out. I think they all agreed that one pumped water faster than the other ones so it wasn't completely fair. But it was still a lot of fun!

Together is the best place to be!

It was so hot that the water rides had really long lines all morning and afternoon. Before the park closed the lines went down, so a few went to ride them. They definitely cooled off! They were soaked!!

Happy Birthday Daddy!!!

I will tell of Your marvelous works."
