May 15, 2016 | D’s company has a summer event each year, and since E is now well over 2 we thought that we would opt for the Theme Park. It’s a bit of a drive, and since she’s still a rookie when it comes to rides we weren’t sure how it would all go. But I’m glad we did it because it ended up being really fun. Like, surprisingly so. The Snoopy/Peanuts area was a big hit, and she rode a couple of those rides, the train, plus two carousels. But I think she was happiest inside this crazy-ball-shooter-stairs-slide-enclosure. Vacuum tubes to collect the foam balls, which then can be shot to suspended baskets up to a certain weight-limit before they all come crashing down. It was complete chaos in there, but in the shade. Eventually we had to pull a crying toddler out of there, but we were so late for lunch there was no choice! Little did we know we had a 35-min wait ahead of us. Oh well, you learn something every day right?
I seriously cannot tell you the last time she fell asleep in the car. It’s a rare thing to be able to see this energetic girl so still! 🙂
We needed some more bubbles, so we drove straight to a toy store. She wasn’t quite awake yet, so you can grab a few snuggles before she takes off running again.
But of course, after a 45-min nap she is up and ready to run and play again! Bubbles are always good for smiles (& teenager-esque looks)…
