This is Kathleen trying out my sun hat in the car. She's also showing her ID bracelet that we have her wear when we go to really crowded places. We mostly hold hands, but we like to stay safe as 5 year olds tend to have their own agendas at times. :-0
As soon as we entered the park we noticed this beautiful butterfly on the ground and stopped to take his picture.
Hayley is a huge horse lover, but we were all in awe of the Clydesdale! What a beautiful horse!
I'm not quite sure why Kathleen decided to make that face....lol!
The girls were pretty soaked here it was after a water ride that we were able to get a picture by the horse.
See the owl in the background?
Here's a closer look!
Hayley rode all the roller coasters this year and LOVED it!
I just loved the green water as we entered Ireland....
This little guy is in the crocodile family....so adorable!
They have a new Sesame Street area they opened up....Kathleen LOVED it! Hayley was a good sport.:-)
Kathleen just loves Elmo and she was so excited to meet him!
Daddy was pretty excited about Elmo too!
Hayley does like cookie monster so she agreed to get in this picture ;-)
She was even a great big sister and got on the dragon water ride. It just went in a circle and under water that went over top the ride.
Hmmm trying to figure who the biggest kid was here that day??? LOL Jerry is definitely a hands on Dad!
They even had some really cute shows....
More cute rides....
Oh and let's not forget Big Bird!!
Oh and Bert and Ernie! Who doesn't love Bert and Ernie? :-) Sesame Street has provided so many years of a great educational program!
We had to take this picture...Kathleen found change on a ride she was on, she always checks the floors etc. everywhere we go to find change and ALWAYS does! We couldn't believe she was lucky enough to climb into a ride and find it in her seat!! Now if she could only find that million dollars....I know we lost it somewhere! LOL
This water ride was really cool...but the fun part was standing on the bridge when the car came down...that's when you really got saturated!!
Jerry took Kathleen on it for the first time and their car got stuck! You can't even see her she sat so low! I was a worried mama!
Everyone started turning around to see what was going on!
Finally they got it to work and down they come in the front row!! Hard to see in the picture, but Kathleen was fearless she loved it!!
While we were eating lunch we enjoyed a great show!
This was the first year Kathleen got in the bumper cars, Jerry LOVES the bumper cars and when they were waiting in line he said Kathleen said "Daddy won't they get mad if we dent up their cars?" ;-)
This was another area they had for the younger kids.
Kathleen had a blast!!
I just love this picture of Hayley being the most awesome big sister ever!!! Helping Kathleen in and out of rides and riding with her when she needed someone to! I hope they are always this close throughout their lives!
We'll wrap up this part with a couple pictures of the bald Eagles.
It's so neat how very still they sit....it's like they are not even real!
Trying to get all my vacation week documented, then I have some great recipes, etc. to share!
Saturday we got the Kindergarten assignment papers for Kathleen....sigh...sniff....sniff... not sure I'm ready...but I know she is! Tomorrow we are going through their clothes and writing a list of all their needs for school. Can't believe how fast the summer is flying by!!
Have a great night!
