Silver Springs

Have you ever had one of those days that you know will be forever etched in your memory?  Yeah, today was one of those days for me.  It was so close to perfect.  We drove an hour away to Silver Springs.  It seems we were one of just a few families who decided to do this today because the place was practically empty.  










I always attempt to get a good picture of my boys together.  As you will see, I failed in my attempt.  


Poor little Micah, he is at the age of wanting freedom and sometimes that doesn't happen.  In those times, he melts fairly quickly!  We were waiting in line for the glass bottom boat and he wasn't such a fan of the waiting.  


One of the things Silver Springs is most well known for is the glass bottom boat.  I remember doing this back in 1991 when I went to Disney with the Ramsey/Bailey families.  


























Yep, confined again. Still not happy about it!


















Yep, there is Jonah.  Yep, he has a map.  Yep, very typical!






We waited few minutes for the bird show to start.  It was hot waiting but the boys loved it.  Especially Micah.  Most people watched him rather than the birds.  He laughed out loud over and over.  It was quite funny.  


































We all enjoyed the jeep tour.  We saw so many animals up close.  
















They had a really nice play area for small kids.  And, unlike most places, the actually regulated who went in and out.  Therefore, no kids over a certain height could come in and knock my kids over because they are so big play.   The play area was completely shaded and covered but still open air.  






































































We didn't get a chance to do the River Cruise because a storm rolled in.  It got dark very quickly.  We barely made it to the car before the massive downpour began.  I couldn't help but stop and take a quick picture of the flags considering it is Flag Day today.  
It was such a fun day today.  I wish the rain would have held off just a little bit longer but we need the rain so badly that I just can't complain much.  And, this little boy, well, he was just fine leaving early because he was TIRED!!
