Amusing Weekends

The past couple weekends were filled with amusement parks. The company Brian works for rents out one of Southern California's amusement/theme parks once a year for all their employees. This year it was Knotts Berry Farm. This was the first year we were able to take the kiddos along for the fun. Just Brian and I took them, and despite the upper 90's temps, we whirled and twirled the afternoon and evening away. I packed extra clothes just in case of accidents and was very pleased to not have to break into them at all!!! Our kids are a bunch of adrenaline junkies and were eager to go on any ride they fit the height requirements for.

The only picture proof that I was there too!!

Just hanging around waiting for our turn on the big steam engine train.

Dylan was fascinated with the steam engine and stopped to talk to the cowgirl/outlaw that walks through the train with a gun, pretending to "hold up" the train. Dylan wanted to hang around until the train left again so he could watch the engine roll away.


The following weekend Brittney came home for a weekend visit, so our family along with Uncle Stephen, Aunt Heidi and their kids headed to Castle Park for some carnival type rides.
