Amusement Park

Wednesday, May 23, 2012

Our apartment building as invested in season passes for the amusement park about an hour from us. They have already gone a few times, and we weren't going to do it, but then deicded that it might be fun. So, we bought them the other day. I already had yesterday off from work, we were going to the zoo. But after buying the passes we decided to go yesterday. We were there for 8 hours and we had a blast. We were all worn out by the time we got home. I have a 9 year old that can ride all the big rides, my 4 year and 2 year old can only do kiddie land rides. We were worried about how they would do, but they both did a wonderful job of not whining. They waited patiently and had a blast. We started off on a big ride. I rode first with my daughter and then dad got on with her. Then on to kiddie land for awhile. There were no lines, not many people which made it a lot easier. I don't expect the same success in the middle of summer, but they have a huge water park so if anything I can take them there while dad and daughter go ride rides and then we take turns. we went back and forth between kiddie land and the big rides. I rode quite a few rides. I was so excited. I was nervous taht I wouldn't fit into the rides. 30lbs ago, there is no way I would have been able to ride anything. so i"m thankful for taht. I did fine with the rides, although it had been 12 years since riding any roller coaster. But my 9 year old had the most fun. She got to ride with me and her dad. It made her feel special like a big kid since the little ones could not ride the big rides. She did ride some rides at kiddie land with them so that was nice. All in all, we are trying to find a babysitter for Monday memorial day so that we can go just with her. WE are trying to find a 4th to go with us so that we have someone that isn't alone, but Im not scared. I'll ride alone. lol

    I don't know how I missed this before!
    That's awesome and sounds like such a fun time! We were debating on going to one here in the area. Like you, the kids are all different and would be in different areas. We're still undecided, but you give me hope, lol! I can't ride (being prengnant and all) so I could easily stay in kiddie land with the youngest.

    Did you make it again on Memorial day with just your oldest? Hope you had a great holiday!!
