Note: My "9 months pregnant" status kept me from riding anything and I assumed the role of photographer for the day. Unfortunately, I don't have any lovely pictures of me waddling around the park or riding the benches or hunting down my favorite craving, Blue Raspberry ICEEs.
One of our first adventures...the "Rollocoaster". All of our kids were big enough to ride along with an adult, and with a little bit of convincing, all the kids decided to give it a try. What you do not see pictured are the faces of the kids AFTER the ride. We'll just say the 2 out of the 4 kids were not exactly happy with their decision.
One of my favorite parts of Idlewild is Story Book Forest, and since it closed before the rest of the park, we made our way over there next.
After Story Book Forest, we stopped at Jumping Jungle. Tons of fun for everyone...except Hooch's husband! Let's just say, Climbing net - 1, George's sandal - 0. Fortunately, over at the water park, he was able to buy replacement sandals so he wouldn't have to walk barefoot the rest of the day.
Last, but not least, we took the kids to Raccoon Lagoon (kiddie land) where all the rides are for kids between the height of 36" and 56"...aka My amusement park paradise! (I'm not going to lie, even if I weren't 9 months pregnant, I wouldn't be riding any rides. As much as I love watching my kids enjoy them, I am NOT a fan!)
|This has to be my favorite picture of the day! I just love the before and after expressions. Obviously, someone wasn't sharing the wheel!|
|Another favorite...love their faces in this one!|
