Staycationing at Dixieland Fun Park

Last Saturday we hiked 3.5 miles at Sweetwater Creek park and today we were supposed to hike again at either Boundary Waters or the Clinton Nature Preserve.

We decided to be spontaneous and go to nearby Dixieland Fun Park instead. Good choice.

With BOGO coupons we only spent $38 for all of us to get in, which was a really great deal for almost 4 hours of fun in the sun.

Of course I forgot to charge the battery to my Canon EOS, so we had to use Jessie's cell to take a few photos, but I was actually relieved not to have to carry my big camera w/ fancy flash kit all around the park.

The rides are nice, but we had the most fun playing two grueling rounds of goofy golf. Jessie was up for a third, but Dh and I called it quits after the second round. Too hot and too tired by that point.

And, of course, on the way home we stopped at the Fayetteville BigLots where we found great deals on snacks for school, which starts again in less than 10 days. It was a bonus day at BigLots: $300 worth of snacks for about $100. Too bad I wasn't there last Sunday when we had the bi-annual extra 20% off your entire purchase coupon.

C'est la vie!


P.S. If you go to Dixieland take bottled water, which you can refill (we did) and wear closed toe shoes (I did not), because some of the rides require them.
