Missouri Travels 2010---Part V Silver Dollar City

It's hot. Ridiculously hot. I'm talking fry-an-egg-on-the-sidewalk hot. Speaking of eggs, it's so hot that chickens are laying hard-boiled eggs. Really. Sounds like perfect weather to head to Branson, Missouri for Moonlight Madness at Silver Dollar City! Yes, we are crazy. It's practically 152 degrees, so we went to Branson to camp and hang out at an amusement park. Great idea!
Although it is stinkin' hot, it's hard to pass up an opportunity to take Colter to Silver Dollar City at a discounted price. The Moonlight Madness tickets are only $25 while they are usually over $50, and the park is open until 10pm. The atmosphere at Silver Dollar City is great (the city is stuck in pioneer days), and there are tons of fun things to do, so we did it! Who cares if we melt? We'll spinning around in circles on amusement park rides and beating the heat on the water rides! Yes!
The key to staying cool at Silver Dollar City is staying wet. This boy has it figured out!
