A couple weekends ago, we went to Silverwood Theme Park in Idaho with Bo's dad and brother, Dallin. It was a ton of fun, and to prove it we have posted about a million pictures to follow.

Carter was really excited to go on the big boy roller coaster (the only one he was tall enough to ride with an adult). As we got closer, though, he started having second thoughts. We managed to get him on in the end though by telling him he needed to smile when he saw the camera on the ride. He kept his head up during the initial drop (because he had no idea it was coming), but ducked it the rest of the ride. I had no idea what to expect at the end of the ride because it was so fast and loud, I couldn't hear Carter at all. I thought he might come up crying, but instead he popped is head up and said "Dad, I didn't see the camera." What a trooper. He said he had fun but didn't want to ride it again.

They have a train ride around the park that used to be kind of cool, but now they have this lame "sherriff" that talks about himself the whole time. Still, it was a pretty ride.

This was the first ride the kids went on. They had fun, but Cassidy says she was worried Megan was going to slip through the bar so she was holding on tight the whole time.

Our cute little pilots.

Megan looking at the ground, thinking they may be flying a bit too high.

Carter did great on the little kid coaster by himself.

Megan made it one lap with her head up then ducked her head the rest of the ride.

Megan seriously would have happily gone back and forth between the helicopters and airplanes the entire time. She even finally figured out how to get them to go up and down.

On the bumper boats. Not many people get off dry.

Megan's job was to keep her hand on the button at all times. She did great, even when she was getting sprayed.

All in all, a very fun day. The kids were exhausted by the end, and ready to go home. The adults may have been a little worn out too.

WHAT fun. I can't show my kids this blog. They would be TOO jealous.

Oh man, I love Silverwood. Remember that year we went there during Girl's Camp? Now THAT was awesome.

Wow, looks like you had a great time. I love Carter's faces he pulls. What a character. Go Megan on the bumper boats!

So fun! This reminds me of when Jason was finishing up med school and had some time off and we got to go do a bunch of fun things! Glad you guys are having fun!

Amusement park trips are some of the most vivid moments from my childhood—so much fun. Glad you guys can spend some time together and enjoy the break before Bo starts residency!
