Silver Dollar City and a birthday

On Friday, we went to

Some people don't seem to care for Silver Dollar City, but we really enjoyed ourselves!  I recommend it!!  Picture overload on this blog, but if you are wondering if this place is worth it, look at the pictures and see for yourself.   

We parked the car and took the tram in.

After we crossed this bouncy, swingy bridge, it felt like the ground continued to move for awhile!

The children were measured and told which rides they could go on without adult supervision.

We all rode this roller coaster!
(feeling sorry for this one little girl!)

It was a very muggy day and we were glad for water sprayers

We enjoyed the train ride 
 it came with a train robbery!

Who doesn't love a carousel?

Claire took turns walking and getting a ride

the crazy tilted house was fun!

I hid behind Allen so I wouldn't get so wet!

We'd been forewarned to wear clothes that would dry quickly.

Good advice!  We were drenched!!
 Staci (who has a season pass) said that normally this place is way more packed, but most schools had started already so the crowds were down.

 Lightening was spotted in the area so for over 1/2 hour, rides were shut down.  We found a place to hang out for awhile before rides resumed.

When rides started up again, Jill, Claire and I stayed with the kiddie rides while the others went on the big rides.

 Claire's favorite was the elephant ride!
And because I wasn't with the others at the big rides, here are some pictures I got off the net.

(Mindy, you would have enjoyed it!!  We missed you!)

Finally, half of us were ready for a trip back to our "home",
The other half wanted to have more thrills.

 When everyone got to the house, we had a super taco supper.

And a 9 year old birthday celebration!

 Happy birhday, Sophia!  (well, not just yet, but we celebrated early for the cousins)
 Jill had made cookies cups (flip a muffin tin over and place cookie dough on it)

fill with ice-cream!

Because Claire has a dairy allergy, Jill made the cookies using coconut oil instead of butter and for Claire, she had her own dairy-free ice-cream while the rest of us had 2 other choices.  YUM!!
