Recap of Vacation

We had a great time at Big Cedar.   Most of the time we spent swimming, there was an indoor heated pool with a slide, a lazy river with waterfall, a children's wading pool that was heated, a hot tub (this was no ordinary hot tub, it was huge and was right next to the beginning of the waterfall which was very relaxing), and a 30 foot long water slide.  And all of this was in walking distant of our room.  The kids loved it, they even provided life jackets for non-swimmers.  

We also went canoeing and paddle boating (they were complimentary).  And they had a 9 hole putt-putt golf with a fishing theme.  The 9th hole was inside a huge fish.  There was a kid's fishing pond and a playground, too.

This place is so beautiful.  The view from our room was amazing.  The hills of Missouri covered in trees.  One night I went out at dusk and did yoga by the moonlight in a small grove of trees near our room, that is an experience I would like to repeat everyday.

We also went to Silver Dollar City in Branson.  It was fairly hot but all the water rides kept us cool.   I personally love Fire in the Hole ( it's a "roller coaster" in the dark and at the end you splash down in water).  Sage's favorite was Skychase Balloon Ride.  I rode Wildfire, my first real roller coaster ride and we got soaked on the Lost River of the Ozarks.  We bought season passes to SDC so we are planning on going back in November after they put up the Christmas decoration.
