Fun Day at Silver Dollar City

Fun Day at Silver Dollar City

We got passes to Silver Dollar City for Christmas, so we wanted to start using them! Tyler had Good Friday off, so we decided to head up to Branson for the day.  We tried a there-and-back trip….which wasn’t too bad. Remi was EXHAUSTED and slept the whole way home, but she did well all day.

It was her first time at SDC. It’s a special place for me. Sure, lots of people love it, but I worked there for 2 summers during my teenage years, so it’s a VERY special place for me. I literally know it like the back of my hand. For two summers, we ate most every meal there, played there, worked there, got to experience the park when it was closed (both before and after hours)…so it was special to take her there.

We got to the park, parked, got a cinnamon roll (one of my must-eats!) and saw the pogo stick show! They jumped SO high.

She was enthralled with everything. I love her zest for life. Everything is exciting, including these big wind chimes.

Caitlyn and I got on the new coaster- Time Traveler. It was SO good.

Then we met up with everyone for lunch. This festival was the Festival of Wonder, which included a big hall full of food stalls- and we all sort of sampled things for lunch. LOTS of yummy options!  Some of our faves: BBQ nachos, crab-topped waffle fries, pulled pork mac and cheese grilled cheese, and a bang bang shrimp waffle cone.

After lunch, we took Remi to the kids area to ride rides. She was PUMPED, then got a little scared, and bless her, she white knuckled through a couple rides.

The balloons was NOT her fave, but she insisted on trying another ride after.

The puppy dogs was her fave, I think.  It was hard to tell sitting behind her.

We all hit up the train next! Remi had to take a quick potty break while waiting for the train, and we found her a superhero cape and mask on the way back. (They have the neatest shops around the city!). She LOVED being Super Remi!

Next up was the carousel. Also not sure about that.

Then we all headed to wait in line for the big fire show- Phoenix Fire. We had to wait a bit, which made her get antsy, but the show was GREAT.

After the show, we hit up the candy shop and ice cream shop (ALL THE FOOD). Remi was SO EXCITED for her ice cream.

While we waited on the tram to take us back to our cars, we took some family photos.

Remi girl LOVES these cousins!

And we love our girl!

She slept 95% of the drive home. Once we got in the car, she was eating a snack and recapping her day and then she promptly passed out, holding her popcorn bag.

She slept until our bathroom/food stop, woke up to potty then went back to sleep before she could eat any of her food.

When we got home, she asked to go to bed. Bless her. She tried to nap in her stroller at SDC and just couldn’t- too much going on- but she was a sweet kiddo all day until we got in the car and she just passed out.

I’m SO glad we got to spend this fun day together! We will be back, Silver Dollar City!
