Vacation Recap Day 4

Knotts Berry Farm
This was such a GREAT day! I don't think we really waited in a single line. I also have to say that for little kids I actually think there is a lot more to do here than at Disneyland. Camp Snoopy was awesome and the kids had such a fun time and most especially just being together as cousins. Be warned I was the only one with a camera so I'm putting a lot of pictures up for my family! This car ride looked harmless enough but it totally whipped you around on the corners! You can tell Davis was very aprehensive about it though! This was the ride that finally broke the ice for Davis. He couldn't get enough of the horn!
The boys getting ready to go on the Accelerator. Honestly this ride was the hardest part about being pregnant for me. You go from 0 to 82 mph in 3 second I think it is. You then go straight up and then straight down! I cant wait to go back!!!
Okay so maybe this ride was really hard too since you got to get soaking wet and I was hot! We made up for it on Bigfoot rapids which they just let you go on over and over again without getting off because there was no line. It was so nice to cool off!Then log ride was a huge hit because everyone could go on (well maybe I wasn't suppose to but I did anyway) Davis didnt mind it the first couple of times but when we went on the third time he recognized the line and held on for dear life!
The boys loved the roller coaster in Camp snoopy and I mean they LOVED it. In fact they just went on it over and over. The lady running the ride finally called down to me to make sure it was okay that Caleb and Briggs went on for the 5th time in a row!Thankfully Davis complied by taking a nap while the boys did the roller coaster over and over again.Its been so fun to see how much more brave Caleb has been getting with rides this past year (it helps when cousins are around!) This was the last ride the boys wanted to go on and I thought it was so great how much they loved it and didn't even flinch when an adult couldn't go on!In fact I think the kids could have gone longer but us adults were wiped out. Where else in the world can you be home from spending full day at Knotts to home and swimming in a half hour! Thanks Dad and Mom for such a great day! Here is one video that I just couldn't help and I thought was priceless!

What a fun vacation! Knott's Berry Farm is my favorite amusement part. You can't beat Camp Snoopy for the kids, and their "big rides" are fun and crazy! What great pictures, and what a cute family! And congratulations on Beckham Lewis! (We also had 3 boys first.) I hope the delivery goes quickly and smooth!

We LOVE Knott's Berry farm. Once (the week of Christmas... not my idea.) we went to Disneyland and couldn't get in becuase it was full so we went to Knott's and we still didn't have to wait very long for any of the rides. That car ride is so funny to watch the kids on.

Nice job Lis and taking pictures. Ty won't shut his mouth about going. Just say "Knotts" and look away. He perks up, "We going knots bewy farm today, yea!". Poor guy. We had a lot of fun.

That video was so cute of Briggs and Caleb! Thanks!

How did the Safety Tats hold up under the water, sweat, and fun? Are they keepers?

Lisa said...

Not as well as I would have liked. The part where the number is comes off faster than the rest and sometimes they work really well and other times they were of before noon. I think for Davis I will keep using them but for Caleb who is a little older I will put a business card of Johns in his pocket as a back up next time.

I wonder if instead of the Safety Tats, just writing your cell number with a sharpie on their arm (I'm thinking the full length of the forearm for easy reading)would last better. Thanks for reporting back on the tats!
