We went to Wild Adventures Theme park on Labor day.
Our good friends, the Enderle's have season passes and on occasion Wild Adventures runs a special "bring a friend" day. You can read about last time we went here. This time the daddy's got to come too, which multiplied the fun 100 fold. Especially since Andy HATES roller coasters, and heights in general.
So figuring out which rides he will actually get on is quite amusing.
At least Zion had someone to ride with!
Canaan loved absolutely everything, and had not one single cautious bone in his body.
He wanted to ride everything he was tall enough for, and several that he wasn't.
Look closely - you can see Zion behind Andy. I was laughing so hard because I was sure he would be smashed, but he didn't want to get wet, so he hit behind Daddy on the water ride.
I have had to readjust my ride "ability level". Normally there is nothing I won't ride, but with the threat of a seizure I have had to be more wary. I have discovered I can handle high, and fast, but not jerky. And, as much as I love to look down and see the world below me, my eyes have to stay closed on rides now. Oh well - I still get the rush!
The above picture was a "Free Fall" of sorts. The kids had their own version, and the LOVED it. I think they rode it four times!
Zion was very helpful reading the map.
Wild Adventures also has a "zoo" of sorts. After being members of the Atlanta Zoo, Wild Adventures really can't compare.
I must say I wasn't impressed. Too many cages, and sad little improper habitats for some amazingly beautiful and large wild animals. If I were slightly more outspoken, and didn't have my children with me, I might have had to protest a little more loudly then I did. Bears in a cage just felt so wrong after watching Brother Bear too many times!
I mostly kept my mouth shut... mostly.
The animals I enjoyed the most were the wild ones that were freely scattered throughout the park.
Freedom gives them their own beauty, don't you think?
Boys, being boys...
Me, with my little red head.
It was a good day!
