Well I figured since we celebrated Easter with MoMo today that I should probably blog about our trip to Silver Dollar City to see the Christmas lights tonight. Ha!
Back in December we took the kids to Silver Dollar City for the first time. Matt and I had been before but never at Christmas time. Although I didn't get many pictures of the actual lights--they are everywhere and so beautiful! We spent most of our time during the day at the kid rides. It turns out that Lilly and Reid LOVE to ride the rides! At first they wanted to go on the rides where they had to ride with an adult so DeDe and I rode with them.
They liked to hold down the red button that kept us up in the air.
Then we found the rides they could ride by themselves!
During the day we had to wait for a few minutes in line.
I love this picture!
At night--there were no lines and they got to ride as many times as they wanted! Which was about 5,000 times. Ha! We shut the park down!!
They really loved this frog ride. The frog carts jump up and down in a circle. Sounds nauseating to me but they LOVED it.
We also went to a big play area. This tube sucks the balls up in it.
And then there is this gun that shoots the balls out.
Then the balls go up on this thing and fall out at the top.
The kids had so much fun!
We watched a Frosty the Snowman show and we were all entertained. There was a lot of improv going on by the actors/actresses and it was hilarious.
Then we found a good spot and waited for the parade to start!
This guy was at the beginning of the parade.
Everything was covered in lights. There were even princesses in dresses that were covered in lights.
I snagged Matt up out of the dating pool and we got married 8 1/2 years ago! He is an amazing husband to me and awesome father to our two little ones. We are just a couple of Christian people trying to get closer to God, reflect Him better, and raise our children in His Word and His Way!! We are loving every minute of this busy/fun/blessed life!
This little princess is a mixture of sweet and sassy! She keeps us laughing with practically every word that comes out of her mouth. She can melt your heart with a smile and a giggle and then turn right around and keep you on your toes with some mischeviousness! Her facial expressions give away her every thought and we just couldn't love her more (but somehow tomorrow we will)!
This is our boy with the magic smile! He is a perfect mixture of sweet and snugglie and ALL boy. He is laid-back like his Daddy and full of energy like his sister. He is happy climbing and dancing or curled up reading a book with Mommy. He is always learning some new trick and we can't wait to see what he is going to do and say next!
My handsome man and I have been married for 7 years. We are the extremely blessed parents of Lilly and Reid. This blog documents our lives, allows the grandparents and other family to see regular pictures of the little cuties, and helps friends and family stay in the know about us! Overall, we are simply a God-loving family of four!
