Over the weekend...

We snuck off to Silver Dollar City in Branson.
I've been going there since I was a kid and now we like to get season passes and take our family several times during the year.

Left to right, clockwise:
1. I found a new boyfriend. 2. The big kids and I on Wildfire roller coaster 3. Pretty building 4. Happy train conductor 5. Happy sun 6. Happy Americana decorations 7. Silver Dollar City sign 8. a pretty crocheted lampshade 9. Cute baby who needs a haircut.

Ummmm, yeah. There's just no explanation for this.
It was burned into my brain so I thought I'd share the love with you.


Everything is always so pretty there, no matter what time of year you go.
I want their landscapers to come work in my yard.






We saw a fun dog show. I'm quite certain my huge clumsy Bernese Mountain Dog and floppy Basset Hound would never do these things.

We came home to 111 degree temperatures and excessive heat warnings. Fun times.

Are you a roller coaster rider? We LOVE them!

LOVE SDS aaannnddd Wildfire! Last time we were there was in October. We had to wear gloves. Riding the front seat of Wildfire about froze the eyeballs. Speaking of frozen eyeballs - Ach!! What is up with that guy??

Barely tolerating theses horrible KS temps of ours. I decided I need to be a Fire Bird. If the Snow Birds live in the south for several months a year to escape the cold temps....I need to move north to escape the fiery-furnace-style summers we are getting!!!

Looks like you had a great time. Bet you would like to go back until, oh, September...when we are not melting here any more :)

Lisa @ Life is Crazy Beautiful said...

Oh, wow! The heat has apparently melted my brain. According to my first comment it would be "Silver Dollar Sity" Ha!!

kendal said...

FUN! this heat is definitely oppressive....

Danielle said...

I'm not sure I would say everything at Silver Dollar City is lovely - that character you photographed is anything but lovely. But the photo made me smile :)

We love roller coasters. Are there good ones at SDC? We haven't been since we've had kids.

Sew Gracious said...

Wow...Mr. Spongebob has a Don Imus look about him. Nice!

I'm not a coaster-ridin' girl. YIKES!

rentz said...

I do not like roller coasters; my hubby does though. But I do like Silver Dollar City. And that guy...wow...there are no words...

Sponge Bob Guy. WOW.

Amy said...

You do such fun family things. Your kids will have the best memories. :)

The Perfect Trio said...

Ok. So everything was pretty there EXCEPT that guy. Wow! I often wonder of people look in the mirror before they walk out the door.

A side note: theme parks are THE BEST place to people watch!

I LOVE roller coasters. However, a ride that goes round and round I can not handle. For example, the tea cups at Disney. No good!

Sara said...

I love em, too.

But not that scary one you took a picture of that just ENDS with broken rails :)

Thanks, for burning that image in my mind. I may have nightmares.

Country Dreaming said...

Looks like fun but I am concerned about the rolloercoater at the end.
Seems to be missing a few necessary items. Don't know what to say about Spongebob.

Question....where did you get your Bernese Mountain Dog???? We had one and we're still mourning her loss. We're looking for another of the same breed and can't find a breeder anywhere for miles and miles and miles. We live in KS. Contact me if you can. Thanks! dudte@mtelco.net

I'm happy that you found a new boyfriend and that you were able to watch a good dog show. Good things happen to good people.
