Leap the Dips


Yesterday we had our annual outing with friends to this park. It's a lovely small park, there is a water playground (sorry, forgot to take pictures) and there are amusement park rides and roller coasters. They also have beautiful flower beds with these amazing flowers (above) which are the size of dinner plates, even though it doesn't look like it in the photo!!! I wish I knew what they are called.

Anyway, the park is just the right size for a short day visit and there are rarely any lines for the rides. In fact there were a couple of times when our group of four boys were the only ones on the ride!!! I braved a few rides, but left the scary stuff to Little J & Mr. VW. We spent the entire day out yesterday, leaving at 9:30am and arriving home at 10pm - so much for a short day trip.....
Ready to ride Leap the Dips which is the worlds oldest roller coaster and was built in 1902!
Almost at the top - way too high and way too old for me!
The camera liked the Ferris Wheel the best :-)
My favorite - the Twister!

And the boys favorite, the Toboggan.
Today will be a quiet recovery day with some peaceful crochet and the start of a new project for Little J who has a birthday in the near future.

Sounds like you had fun! Hope your quiet day today sees you fully recovered from all that adreneline (is that how you spell it?!).
