Vacation, Part 2

 Saturday morning we were at Silver Dollar City bright and early!

 Jack rode his first roller coaster.  He loved it!

 We split up with the boys for a while since Alice wasn't tall enough to ride everything Jack wanted to ride.

 Giant teacups!

 Jack was nice enough to ride the bugs with his sister.

We had front row seats to see the Wallendas--less than a week before the Niagara Falls walk!

They have a great kids' area with water guns!
 
Alice loved the splash area!
 

After all of that, we went home to the pool to cool off.
 
I was so excited to find a Culver's!
 
Sunday was Jack's 8th birthday.  He woke up at 5:57 to find his own copy of Harry Potter on the nightstand!
 
He was very surprised to get a Kindle, too!
 
While Jack tried out his new present, Alice played in the closet.  She thought this was the best!
 
That morning we went to the Titanic Museum.  This is an amazing place!
 
We wrapped up our trip with some time at Branson Landing.
 
Alice had a gift card for Build A Bear!
 
On the way home!

We were all worn out!  We arrived home to find that a wine bottle had popped its cork and sprayed and leaked all over the kitchen, so I got to spend several hours scrubbing and washing everything.  Thankfully I had just had a few days off from housework!

What a fun vacation! I want to go to the Titanic museum! I'm glad you got to Sight and Sound. We loved Joseph and are hoping to go and see Jonah this year!
