our pal graelyn is turning three soon. to celebrate, a set of her grandparents came to town and they all went to tweetsie for the day on saturday. oh. and we also got invited. it worked out nicely because derek has to work so much, and it gave him some time to work, without feeling guilty, while the kids and i spent his hard earned money on theme park fare, souvenirs, toys and ice cream. 🙂
while ike and i rode some sort of tornado twister scrambler type spinning ride, the rest of the party hit up the deer park and then we made our way back down the mountain. we got to the bottom just in time to climb onto tweetsie for smoky ride around the mountain, with a couple of stops for a decidedly non politically correct reenactment of cowboys, sheriffs and “indians”.
my kids were melting down a bit at this point. if i weren’t going it alone, i might have forced the issue and made isaac hit a few more rides, to get our money’s worth. but, with anna in tow, and no one to hold her so i could ride some of the bigger rides with him, i called it a day. we went to the incredible toy store down the road and picked up some fun playmobil toys and then hit the road. it was super fun. and super tiring. and. that’s all.
answer. isaac. it was the five year old.
