As a treat this year we bought season passes to an amusement park about 30 minutes from our house. The idea being we could run down and just do a few rides now and then and totally get our money's worth without having to spend a whole day waiting in line. We went yesterday for the first time with our three kids and three older cousins from Hubby's side of the family. They are in the 111th, 9th and 8th grade and my kids just worship them. AGB especially worships this cousin J who is a sweet boy and so good with him. Well, he had a ball. CMB turns out to be a total adrenalin junkie and loves roller coasters. The faster they go the better and if they go upsidedown even better. OPB isn't tall enough to go on all of them but the ones he went on, he loved! AGB is like me at that age. Very, cautious. He got very nervous and almost tearly but when Josh got there he manned up and went for it. All the kids had a ball. It was very chilly and cloudy and there were virtually no lines which was great. This park also has a waterpark atached but we saved that for another day.
