I forgot to tell you that the first place we went was a magic show! We weren’t able to get any pictures so I forgot about it. We went to “Hamner’s Unbelievable Variety Show.” The kids were riveted! One of their favorite parts was when one of the macaws flew right over their heads. Kylee actually tried to grab it! Carl’s favorite part was the man who performed on a cyr-wheel. It looked like it took incredible balance! We were all impressed! It was funny when the woman was performing silks and I heard Carl James exclaim “Mom! That looked like the star drop!” I was such a proud mom. It was in fact the star drop! I loved hearing all the oooh’s and aaaah’s of the kids but I mostly loved hearing Carl James. He seemed the most taken by all of the mystery and wonder. Perhaps it’s because I was sitting right next to him that I just noticed him more but while I was sitting there I was suddenly reminded how much he loves magic! He has always been intrigued by it! Throughout the whole show he kept saying “I wonder how they did that.” For the next few days Carl James told us all about the magic show (almost as if we weren’t there) and told us his ideas of how he thought they did things and how confused he was on others. I was so glad we went and now I have a birthday idea for him for his birthday that’s coming up the end of this month! (Why magic stuff of course)
We saved the best place for last. At least that’s how we see it because we love animals! The last place we went was Branson’s Wild World! I will get straight to the pictures because there are a ton!
I would say the best part about Branson’s Wild World was Finn! It was a little nerve wracking though because he quite strong and really wanted to pull himself up over the fence to play by pulling on your arm and lifting his feet off of the ground. Or he wanted to pull you over. Whichever would work he seemed content with! We stayed on our side the fence though!
At the end of touring Branson’s Wild World went through this haunted clown house. I’m so glad it wasn’t actually open and it wasn’t dark. I would have freaked . They had all of this stuff that you could tell was supposed jump out at you! Including a massive spider. Like I I was glad it wasn’t clown season! Haha
We had a fun time going through the big squeeze too! It’s an area that is like a large inflatable tunnel that you walk through but it’s a squeeze to get through!
