tristan was trying to impress this girl with a story of his exploits in his dream last night--flying and doing flips.
ohh, the magical button that makes the caterpillar fly.
this ride was the most fun for all. kassi and tristan both loved it and it was kinda fun to ride as an adult.
tabitha, and her funnel-cake not to be separated at any cost.
Silverdollar city albeit a commercialized theme park was a wonderful time. all of the old-timey ozarks personae was very contrived but well done nonetheless. the kids had such a great time. sorry pictures were spotty. i was mostly busy having fun too.
tristan is 41 31/32 tall and all of the big rides required 42 inches. his shoes were flat and we got measured at every bigboy ride. he was amazing riding everything they'd let him on with gusto. except....
there was this huge roller coaster that launches you into full speed from a standstill then into spinning, flipping and spiraling. he got so scared that he was crying for mama. i held his little hand and laughed and giggled trying to change the tone. during the second climb to greater heights and even more terror tristan whimpered and i regretted going on the ride. as we entered the slow down period tristan stopped crying and was just generally unhappy. we got out of the ride and tristan declared that he did NOT like that roller coaster. in retrospect, he says that he'd go on that ride if we would just go back to silver dollar city.
it was busy and hot but they, unlike all other theme parks i'd been too, had lots of trees and with all of the other cooling measures the heat was very tolerable.
there was quite a bit of this behavior. kassi was pushing tristan over to make room so she could sit in the rented stroller
should i jump? is it too high?
at least both kids are looking at the camera at the same time.
