Our trip started last Thursday, when we left for Branson in the morning. Our first stop was a surprise from Daddy – he took us to a bakery on our way out of town to get some donuts for the road. I chose a caramel frosted cinnamon roll – it was pretty good.
We arrived at our condo at about 4:30 in the afternoon. After unloading the van, we decided to go to Silver Dollar City for the rest of the day and go again the next day (if you go and purchase tickets at Silver Dollar City after three o’clock, you can go the next consecutive day that they are open with the same ticket).
Dad and Noah were looking forward to riding some roller coasters. As soon as we got there, we made a beeline for a roller coaster. While Dad, Noah, and Drake rode it, Mom and I took Meiling to ride the carousel. After the boys were done with their roller coaster, Drake joined us while Dad and Noah went on some more roller coasters.
I will just put this out in the open now: I don’t ride many amusement park rides, so I only went on a few while we were there. I still had plenty of fun. I loved it!
After the rest of the park was closed, there is one last show that we saw. We headed back to the condo once that was finished, and did some nibbling before we all went to bed.

Sometimes temptation comes as a pastry, covered with sprinkles…
…and sometimes it looks like little brown mounds in little white paper cups!

I LOVE lemonade
I thought this looked neat
