Silver Dollar City with the Family

The Crew....before SDC: Aunt Ann, Blake, Braden, Becki, and Brandon

This was Mason's first trip to SDC and Braden's second.

It was awesome to have Blake and Brandon there to help with the boys. Both took turns pushing the stroller and riding rides. The first ride they got Braden on was Thunderation. Brandon turned around in his seat to get these pics!

Becki was Mason's buddy on most of the kiddie rides. After lunch she and Ann took the little guys for a few hours while I rode the "big" rides with Brandon and Blake.

Brandon and I rode these swings with Mason while Blake and Braden finished a ride, then Braden wanted to try them out so Becki and Blake rode with him. It was a perfect day for our divide and conquer method. Everyone except Becki and Mason rode the Lost River, and poor Ann got splashed the most! I think it was Braden's favorite ride.

Observing the water balloon sling shots, trying to decide if they wanted to do it.....

Mason of course was fascinated by all the busted balloon pieces on the ground

Watching the big guys

Brandon helped Braden on one side, while Blake was on his own

Observation Deck

The boys could not have been better. It was hot, but they both had thermoses of ice water and ice cream to keep them cool. Mason took a cat nap in his stroller while Becki pushed him in the shade. We didn't leave the park until 9 pm, which wasn't the plan but the entire day was about "going with the flow" after bed time came and went, I warned the adults that we were sitting on a time bomb and that the meltdown could hit at any moment, but it never did. Both boys had such a good time! We've already talked about plans for next year!
