Silver Creek Plunge

For the past few weeks, Alex has been begging to take the girls swimming at Silver Creek Plunge. We went camping there last summer and had a great time. So we decided to take a day trip. After getting all our stuff together, I couldn't find Mycah's little swimming suit ANYWHERE! We dumped everything out and still NO Swimming Suit. Finally I decided that we would see if Walmart had any on sale while we were getting lunch stuff. Yay! $3 for purple poc-a-dots! I was so glad. Anyway, it was about a two hour drive, and we were there. We practically had the whole pool to ourselves! The water is SOOO warm, I was kind of wishing it was about 8 degrees cooler outside.
The girls had a BLAST! They have a shallow side for kids which is perfect for them to play in.

After swimming we went out to the big grassy area where there is a big play-set and volleyball pit. We gathered up our lunch (which consisted of Cheetos, Kit Kat Bars, Oreos, Animal Cookies, and Juice Boxes)....aren't we the coolest parents??

The girls played and dug in the rocks.

We went for a little walk by the river.

We enjoyed the beautiful view and the beautiful weather.

We had such a good time, I think I want to go up there again when it gets just a bit cooler. Of course I need to borrow a camper with heat or reserve a cabin. Anyone who wants to join us is welcome.


  1. Sounds like a lot of fun!! You are some of the coolest parents, that's my kind of lunch!!

  2. What a lovely day -- Silver Creek looks beautiful. If we weren't so far away, I'd say count us in for a camping trip. Especially if you bring the same food. Mmmmm... Cheetoes.

  3. LOL--I just bought the SAME swimming suit, for $3 at Walmart, for Keitra next year. It's a cute little thing...what a beautiful place Silver Creek is! I'll have to find out more about it from you...

  4. Sounds like you guys had a great time. THe water looks like fun!!

  5. That looks fun, we'll have to join you.

  6. you guys always find such cool places to go around here! We have no idea where anything cool'll have to tell us where all the fun stuff is hiding!
    I got my 3 column template by going to
    then clicking on "how to get a 3 column template" then follow the directions. It wasn't too hard. But that cutestblogsontheblock website has a section of 3 column templates already ready for you to use on your blog once you've changed it.
