After we'd had a day at Silverwood, we stayed a night in a hotel and then headed up the mountain to ride the Trail of Hiawatha. While unpacking, I realized I'd forgotten all my toiletries. I had no toothbrush, floss, deodorant, shampoo, conditioner.
This is a gorgeous area. I am so glad we did it. Maren says maybe another time we could do the Trail to Coeur d'Alene, which is not quite so long. Sounds like a plan!
The first ride Matthew went on when we arrived was this little ferris wheel. He was terrified at first. As he clung to me crying, I explained how the ride would go, and reassured him that we'd be safe together. He stopped crying at that point, and was fine. Once we got on, the panic set in a bit. But Ella was such a good sister, and helped to distract him. We talked about the butterflies we get when the ride goes around. Then he was cracking up and having a good time.
Waiting in a long line for the bumper boats:
