Silver Dollar City!

Silver Dollar City!

The main reason we went to Branson was to visit Silver Dollar City for Christmas!

We LOVE SDC. Remi talks about it alllll the time. And the city is just magic at Christmas.

We got there when it opened and walked around for a few minutes killing time at the front of the park before lunch.

We hit up the Wilderness Church, where Remi and I looked at the hymnals.

The Christmas decor is so cute! (Also spy that rock candy that the grandmas bought her! ALLLLL the sugar at SDC).

We had lunch with Santa (more on that tomorrow), and then we played. Remi wanted to go play at Fireman’s Landing. She loves the big ball room (and I feel like this is where we caught the flu…more on that later).

But it was fun, nonetheless.

And PRAISE BE, she was FINALLY 36 inches, which meant she could ride almost allll the rides (thanks to a pair of tennis shoes with a thick light up sole ha!).

Her favorite ride were these little swings. She rode them time and time again.  The park did get very busy at dark, but during the day, she could exit and walk right back around and get on again without waiting.

They had a fun meet and greet with Bumble from Rudolph. She loves anyone in a mascot or costume. No fear.

We also had to get a cookie on our way out of meeting Bumble (they are smart…we didn’t buy a photo but we DID buy a cookie!) and decorate it.  And of course, she picked blue icing!

Which resulted in this blue face for the rest of the day. ha!

This was us on the big elephants.  She got a little scared up high, but I was proud of her being so brave (and I was also loving that she was choosing to ride with momma).

But she also got to ride some with Gigi (poor Gigi in these tiny frogs!)

I was SO HAPPY to see her loving rides after crying on rides in Spring and Summer.

And then Mimi got to ride the butterflies with her.  She didn’t want to make her butterfly “fly” in the sky much, but she liked pressing the button for a second to make it bump.  Poor mom was so bumpy from the ride! ha!

She LOVES the talking bear shooting gallery.  This feels like someday soon they may put something in that makes more money for the park, so I’m afraid someday this will be just a memory. I had to take a picture. She LOVES to shoot all the things and watch them move and talk.

We caught the Christmas parade from a great spot. Remi loved watching everyone come by, but she did ask where the candy was. She’s used to our hometown parades throwing candy. ha!

After the parade, we caught the puppet show. Girl LOVES puppets, and this cute show let the kids on stage. She was RIGHT up front.

And then they got to stand up and dance. She was a big fan!

It was getting late and cold, so we hit the candy shop and then the big Christmas tree at the entrance.  Then we headed back to our condo.  Such a fun day together!
