I'm so happy with their ages right now and it is really a fun time. However, I loved when my kids were little and I often long for those days back again. Yesterday was just what I needed though...just when I'm wishing I could turn back time we go and have an amazing day like this where we all can enjoy "big kid" activities. We made memories, rode rides, laughed, screamed with delight, and had an absolute ball. Days like yesterday are great for me and serve as a wonderful reminder that even though my kids are growing up, each phase with them will be just as wonderful in it's own way as the one before.
The Log Jamboree was our first ride and the kids loved getting a little splashed from the water. Little did they know that would be nothing compared to what we would experience later in the day.
Then we found some other fun rides for my little thrill seekers!
Hudson got to see the Batmobile!
We decided to ride a few more rides and this is how I feel about riding when Hudson is driving! Haha!
Finally we were ready for Hurricane Harbor. It's a water park inside Six Flags that is totally free with your admission to the park. It's brand new and we loved it!
I had the time of my life. The kids thought it was so awesome that I was climbing up the nets (and steps) and sliding down with them and even though I got blasted with water from the giant buckets up above, we were all laughing and having the best time. I felt like a kid going down the waterslides and just kept thinking that I couldn't imagine the fun they were having if I, as an adult, was having that much fun.
We grabbed Dippin' Dots on the way out and then made our way home.
On the way home they just kept talking about how much fun they had and what a great day it was. I felt the exact same way and am so happy that I made yesterday happen. It was great for all of us!
