But, let's backtrack for a second. We don't usually go to amusement parks..... because it PAINS me to spend $50+ on a ticket for J.D. who doesn't ride anything. And I have to go on roller-coasters alone. Or with kids that are like 7 years old and call my husband a "chicken" (wait, that only happened once, in Disney World, on Expedition Everest).
Yea. You read that correctly.
The husband doesn't ride roller-coasters. Or scary rides. Or anything besides *maybe* the swings.
Me and my "scared-of-anything-and-everything" self will ride any roller-coaster or crazy ride that you put in front of me. I know, crazy, right?! I love them. LOVE.
He thinks I'm crazy. And asked me: "Do you think Trey will want to ride them one day?"
My response: "I mean have you met our daredevil child? I'm pretty sure he will be Mama's riding-buddy"!
Anywho. Back to our trip.
During Christmastown only parts of the park are open and everything is COVERED in lights. It was SO beautiful. I was really worried that Trey was too young to enjoy anything but he definitely had a blast!
We walked all around and took in the sites, had dinner at this fun place that served fried pickles (my first! YUM!), rode the rides like Alpengeist, The Battering Ram, Da Vinci's Cradle and Mach Tower. (Oh and we means, the SIL, future BIL and myself). It did start to rain for a little while but it didn't mess up our spirits any, we were lucky that it was unseasonably warm that day!
|He just stared in awe at all of the lights!|
|Our little family|
|On Mach Tower - my new favorite ride!!!|
|AND ~ Trey's first ride was The Little Gliders - he LOVED it!!|
After I realized how much Trey loved this ride - I was ready to sign up for whatever season pass package that they were offering right that second! J.D. reigned me back in but I am secretly counting down the days until they open in the Spring!
p.s. So let's take a poll ~ do you and your significant other ride roller-coasters? I want to know!
