8: Ride the Ducks | The 'Ride the Ducks' ride took us across the dam, up into the hills and then down into the lake. The views were pretty and the kids enjoy "quacking" the duck bills we were given. Aubrey and Gage's faces were priceless when the "duck" drove into the lake. Aubrey kept asking to go back onto the road. Gage continued to look at mommy and daddy to make sure this car-into-the-water thing was okay.
10: Dixie Stampede | Gage loved looking at the horses on the way into the show. He called them cows then horses then decided they should be called cowboys. He asked for cowboys the rest of the trip. All three kids enjoyed watching the show. The older two were thrilled to wave their flags throughout the show.
