Steve has a business contact at Dutch Wonderland and we were offered free tickets to go sometime this summer.
Our summer has been a bit busy…so we had to find a time to go before the summer is over….and yesterday was the day that we had open so we went!
This amusement park is geared towards the younger kids. So it was perfect for Lena and Ava. They could ride all the rides.
And these big kids had fun too!
(Even if they were “off the chart”)
Jared had to work so we let Logan bring along a friend.
He (of course) chose Kristy.
She is a (very) sweet girl that we have known for years.
(They aren’t dating…they are just friends! But I have feeling when they turn 16 there will be some dating happening. Call it mom intuition.)
(Love the guy photo bombing in the background. At a quick glance I thought it was Mr. Darryl for a second! lol)
The girls loved this turtle ride. They went on it 3 times. It wasn’t crowded yesterday which was wonderful!
I didn’t ride many ride and I took my sling along as my arm did get tired from being down all day.
Dutch Wonderland only has 2 roller coasters. A small one and a wooden one. Ava LOVED the roller coasters. She went on them 3 times.
Steve said he thought I could go on the wooden roller coaster since it is nothing compared to what we usually ride at Hershey Park so he thought it would be ok.
2 weeks post-op + rollercoaster=bad life decision.
It is an old wooden roller coaster and jostled me around pretty good but I survived.
Every time the carousel came around Steve was making funny poses. I was cracking up.
It was a blessing to spend a whole day with these girls and I so enjoyed watching them have so much fun on the rides.
I’m really thankful for the free tickets. It would have cost over $200.00 for us to go to Dutch Wonderland if we would have had to buy tickets. That would have be crazy!
But for free it was a perfect, wonderful, fun day!!! <3
We are sad that summer is on its way out…..but we still have our annual beach trip to look forward to in a couple of weeks!!!! <3 Whoo-hoooo!!!!!!!!!!
All too soon the sun was setting and we were all tired so we headed home…..to take some extra strength advil and crawl into bed!
