...And Good Times Were Had By All

We left Friday afternoon with our friends, Monte and Kristi and their three boys (3 mo, 5 yr, 8 yr), to go to Branson for the weekend. On Saturday, we went to Silver Dollar City for their World-Fest Festival. Even though we did not ride a single "big kids'" ride, we had a great time. Andrew actually spent a lot of time holding the baby as most of the "little kids'" rides make him sick. :)

The morning started out pretty cold and windy. We kept asking ourselves, "What happened to the 63 degree weather we were supposed to have?!" I forgot my jacket at home and Andrew purposefully did not take his. (This is the man who would rather freeze than have to carry a jacket around that he did not really need.) Andrew ended up buying a jacket for $10. Kristi wanted to buy a new sweatshirt/jacket, so she let me wear the jacket she brought. The sun finally came out around noon and the rest of the day was beautiful!

I think the highlight of the day for me had to be watching the Zunyi Acrobats of China. They were amazing! Although, I do have to say, as a physical therapist, I was deeply disturbed by the things I saw! Bodies are not supposed to bend that way! Seriously! At one point, one girl was held up solely by something S-shaped between her mouth and another girl's mouth! At another point, there were two people flying over the crowd. I have never seen anything like this show! I definitely want to see another complete show again!

While we were there, Andrew also bought me a really cute ladybug doormat.
The next SDC festival is Bluegrass and BBQ Festival. We are hoping to get to all of the festivals this year.

I'm officially jealous - the Blue Man Group and then Branson? Wow. The Ellis family make good companions, too - we went to Six Flags with them about a hundred years ago (or maybe 4) and had a blast! Tell them I said hello!
