On Saturday, we decided to surprise the kids with a trip to the nearby Six Flags amusement park. I am a season passholder and it was "bring a friend for free" weekend, so Joey was my "friend." And then my sister Tara hooked us up with discount tickets for the kids so we got in for so cheap! (Thanks Tara!) The kids thought we were going furniture shopping and weren't too thrilled about the idea of spending Saturday walking around furniture stores. When they realized where we were, they were so surprised! Aubrey eyes got so wide and she said, "Thank you Mom & Dad!!!"and gave us each a big hug. Ella's response was a little different. She said with a frown and a little fear in her eyes, "I don't want to go to Six Flags!" Go figure. She remembered not liking a roller coaster from when we went last year:) We had to remind her of how much fun she had on the other rides and then she got excited. So, here are pictures from our Six Flags Surprise day!
Aubrey was a good driver
Ella was too!
Cali loved being a big girl and getting to go on a few rides this time
Smile for Dad!
I was surprised Ella went on this one! Its one of those rides that takes you straight up and down a few times(the kid version). She ended up not loving it, she was smiling on the way up each time, but not on the way down:)
Cali LOVED the horsies and didn't want to get off. I had to pry her legs off.
Our Olympic champs
Cali loved her snack
Roller coaster time!
Ella was brave and did it! Go Ella! She did better this time around too. (It was a different coaster)
Aubrey wanted her picture taken on a rock. She is getting a photographic eye for pictures and always points out places that would make a great photo(just like her Daddy!)
It all ended with sleepyheads in the car. A sign of a good time I say! Now Aubrey, get to sleep! :)
