Super Savings Saturday 8/20

I did not do a lot of shopping this week because we were on vacation in Branson, MO!  I did purchase a few things at Silver Dollar City & the Amish Country Store.  I also squeezed in a little bit of drugstore & school supply shopping when we got home.

Connor & Grandpa in jail at Silver Dollar City.

This year Connor thought for sure that he would be tall enough to ride Wildfire.  He was so close that they had to meaure him several times but they said he still wasn't quite tall enough.  We even tried trading shoes. Yes, my 7 year old & I wear the same size shoes.  If you are wondering how this is possible, check-out the picture of my 6'6" husband above!  

 Today, I was looking at our vacation pictures and I came across the picture above.  Doesn't it look like he is in the green "all ride" zone?   He is even wearing his own shoes in this picture.  Well, I think we will have to make another trip to Silver Dollar City this Fall.  Connor says he just has to ride Wildfire in 2011!
