Ride the Ducks

One of the favorites from Branson was Ride the Ducks.
Once we were out on Table Rock Lake, each kid got to drive the Duck.
Next time, you are in Branson, get Captain Jessie and go on Ride the Ducks.

Branson 2010

Posted by Picasa
We had a wonderful trip last week. We spent 6 days in Branson, Mo. at Still Waters Resort.

We traveled with another family, who has kids the same age as ours, which was a new experience for us. The 8 of us stayed in a large, two bedroom condo on Table Rock Lake.

The resort was quite nice with three pools (including one with a waterfall and another with a slide,) there were free kayaks and paddle boats on the lake, places to grill out, two nature trails, fishing on the docks, and jet ski and boat rentals a few feet from our door. Also, it's only 10 minutes from Silver Dollar City.

We had a great time at Ride the Ducks with Captain Jessie. The kids got to drive the duck on the lake. This activity was on the second day and the Ride the Ducks song was stuck in our heads for the rest of the trip; we would often break out into the chorus at random times.

The first day of Silver Dollar City we were rained out early in the afternoon but we returned the next day and someone from our group rode every ride at the park (except the GIANT Swing.) By far, the ride we rode the most was Fire in the Hole, it was the first ride on the first day and the last ride on the last day.

It was a wonderful vacation with good company and lots of laughs.
