Jesse and I grew up going to Silver Dollar City with our families and we have so many, many wonderful memories of times spent there.
So when my dad emailed us a few weeks ago about possibly meeting all of my extended family in Branson for two days, we jumped on it.
The weather was perfect and it was so fun to get to experience all the rides, fun music, good food, and watching the various people demonstrating old-fashioned crafts throughout the park.
Our kids loved getting to hang out with their cousins and play and ride rides together! It’s so fun to see them all together just loving life and laughing and playing!
It’s so much fun for Jesse and I to come back with our kids — especially now that they are old enough to really enjoy it!
And for the record, I think SDC totally beats Disney World. Yes, you can disagree with me, but that’s my opinion and I’m sticking with it. 😉
We came. We rode. We screamed. We got drenched. We ate. We walked miles (which was a good thing considering all that we ate!!)
We laughed. We rode more rides. We made so many memories. And our kids are convinced that Silver Dollar City is pretty much one of the best places on earth… Just like we both thought growing up! It was a good trip!
Oh and I turned 35. Which I’m still having a lot of trouble wrapping my head around. Especially while I was holding my hands in the air and squealing like a kid on some of the rides!!
This was a year of personal transformation and growth for me… Probably like no other year of my life. It was a good year and I’ll never be the same for it. I’m looking forward to seeing what adventures and opportunities for growth 35 holds for me — even if it feels kind of scary to be “so old” (as my kids reminded me I was this weekend!)
How was YOUR week? Have you been to Silver Dollar City before?
