Growing up outside of St. Louis, we had Six Flags less than an hour away.
Growing up in Amarillo, Kaden and Owen have Wonderland Park.
Similar... yet different. But at this age, it doesn't matter because it's so exciting just to GO!
Kaden & I had a date to Wonderland while daddy stayed home with Owen.
Kaden's first solo ride: the CARS!
I wasn't sure how he would react to the rides since he's never been to a fair or ridden any carnival rides before. Once he saw these cars, I don't think he even realized that I was there anymore... He was SO incredibly excited to move and pretend to drive!
Meeting up with Miss Danni
The mini bumper cars were more entertainment for us than anything else...
There was more crashing into the walls & spinning in circles than crashing into each other.
Kaden & Danni on the boats...
and then again on the cars.
On just a couple of the rides (like the train), it didn't really matter how tall you were, but on almost everything else you had to be 36" tall.
Which was really exciting because he was able to ride the Log Ride with me!
Following the Richards' log
Danni, Heather, Kristin & Kaden rounding out the evening with some Dippin' Dots.
one final go in the cars before the park closed and we headed home
We're not sure if it was because it was approaching 10:00 p.m. or if they are just that comfortable with each other but Kaden & Danni truly looked like brother & sister as they fought over the "middle" steering wheel during the course of the ENTIRE ride! Heather & I were cracking up as we watched them steadily progress from slightly bumping each other to full blown elbowing & pulling hair in order to take command of the 3rd wheel.
