Spring Break Branson Trip Recap Day 2

After we woke up and got ready, we headed to Billy Gail's for breakfast.  The pancakes are ginormous and hang over the plate.  This is a great breakfast place, but tends to get very busy.   

After we stuffed our bellies, we headed to Silver Dollar City.  It was so cold.  It was in the 30's, but we were hoping it would warm up.  It was so cold, the roller coasters were not running.  Sister was not feeling the cold, but she perked up as soon as she got on her first ride. 

When it's 30 degrees, what do you do?  Ride a giant swing carousel that goes round and round and makes it feel like the temperature is in the teens. 

All smiles on her first ride.  It's funny how she forgot about how cold she was once she got on a ride. 

Papa turned her round and round on the teacups.  She thought it was hilarious and laughed so hard.

We went into a few shops to try to warm up.  While browsing in the stores, sister enjoyed a little cotton candy. 

It was just way too cold, and we couldn't hang any longer.  I tried to call Dixie Stampede to get reservations.  We always enjoy Dixie Stampede.  It's a great show, and the food is really good, especially since you have to use your fingers to eat.  Unfortunately, all the shows were sold out.  We decided we would head to Grand Country to check out their shows since we got some free tickets from our condo rental owner.  We ended up going to the Comedy Jamboree show.  It was very entertaining.  After the show, we had a little fun in the passion factor chair.  Papa got boring, and nana got cold.  Too funny!  Bryson got teaser.  Before Hallie got on, I said she is going to be either wild or uncontrollable.  Sure enough, she got uncontrollable.  After having fun on the chair, we headed to the next building over to the Grand Country Fun Spot.  The kids (and some adults)  had fun playing games.   


We worked up an appetite and decided to go eat dinner at Lambert's.  This restaurant is known for being home of the throwed rolls.  When you want a roll, you raise your hand and someone will throw one to you.  This restaurant also tends to be very busy.  We only waited about 30 minutes this time, but we have waited an hour before.     

You will not leave this place hungry.  In addition to your meal, they serve other sides family style.  The fried potatoes are my favorite.  I got a steak.  My parents got the catfish and raved about it.  Bryson loved his pulled pork sandwich.  Hubby devoured his chicken fried steak. 

We wobbled out to the car to head back to condo.  It was to time to rest up for another try at Silver Dollar City the next day.

  1. Fun post! We're going to Silver Dollar City this summer. It's been about ten years since we have been there, so I'm looking forward to it. My little kids have never been, I know they're going to love it! Feel free to pass along any tips you have on the Branson area. I'm sure a lot has changed in 10 years.
