Priscilla out fishing - they didn't catch a whole lot, but it was a beautiful day to be out on a boat! While the guys - and Priscilla - went fishing, us ladies went to Springfield and visited a Bridal shop and I tried on some wedding dresses just for fun :)
A butterfly in the "butterfly room" at the zoo
The Peck kids and us in a pontoon boat at the Bass Pro store - it was more comfortable than some houses!
James, Benjamin, and Silas - don't feel sorry for them, I'm sure they deserved any jail time they had to serve!
The night after we were at SDC, we stayed at a campground. They were actually pretty nice and it felt so good to be dry after being in the rain all day!
They had a lot of "rides" at SDC - Most of us kids just settled for a few tame ones. Priscilla was going to go on one of the big roller coasters, but there was enough rain that they had to close it.
There was a huge cave that we got to tour - it was amazing!
After we left the zoo, to avoid rush hour traffic, we hung out at a park for a little while - this is Hosanna standing by the lagoon - she found out about the Bible Bee that day and so she was pretty excited!
Silver Dollar City is an amusement park with an old west theme - they have a lot of stores, and some old-time buildings and craftsmen as well as rides. The P. family had some free guest passes, so we were able to go with...It was a lot of fun!
Hosanna, me, and Jordan at the park - this is one of the MANY pictures that Silas took on the trip - it's a little dark, but I thought it was fun...
Back - James, Cilla, Jordan, me, Zanna, Front - Miriam, Ben, Caleb, and Silas - at the zoo
Miriam at the nature center we went to - they had some walking trails and a creek that the kids played in.
The sign on this cage said that it was a cottonmouth - the reason we noticed it was b/c Silas had seen a snake like it the day before and had tried to find it again in the rocks. We don't have poisonous snakes here in northerm MN!
