our favorite summer hang out

The kids and I had a great day at our favorite summer hangout.

The theme park.... Fun times.

We did something new today. We went up on the top of this thing...

It's a 1/3 scale replica of the Eiffel Tower. It was a little scary, but we had a fun time. I wish I could have captured Reece's expression. She was amazed the entire time. I did manage to get this shot...

It was so pretty up there.

(this is the coaster I blogged about here last year) 

(whatever you do... don't look down) 

I love going to this theme park. When I was a little girl my parents used to take me & I remember how magical it was back then. It's so cool to see the girls making their own memories on some of the same rides my brother & I used to ride together. One of these days I'm going to dig out my old pictures so I can scan and share them.

We even got to see a show.

Olivia was mesmerized by the pretty dancers. She decided she wants to be a theme park dancer when she grows up.

They did do a great job. I was just trying to figure out how those girls were doing all that jumping & hopping around without peeing on themselves.

They obviously don't have 3 kids... just saying.

 Good times for sure.

What's your favorite summer hang out?


Maddy update: I have not heard from her, but I did get word that they arrived at their project site yesterday safely & they started their work today.

  2. How fun to experience the park now through your daughters' eyes. The faux Eiffel tower looks really cool.
