The kids had so much fun exploring and being entertained by these big rides that you couldn't keep them out of the lines! So little ol me with my handy dandy camera couldn't keep my finger off the trigger either. It was so much fun to shoot these bright colorful FUN photos of my kids grinning ear to ear!
but what they did go on were the little "age" appropriate kitty rides and believe me.... I was more than okay with that. Jocelyn's face in the above photo says it all. PRICELESS! This was the first time either one of my kids have been on any kind of rides, so it was a first experience for all of us. We just don't believe in wasting our money on those darn fair expenses when we can go enjoy ourselves for a whole weekend elsewhere spending less money in a weekend then you would in one day at the "rip off fair". Besides, my kids really know no different so it's okay. ;)
Looking at them makes me laugh especially my son. They had a great time, well we all did for that matter. So after the fun day at Oaks park we found a nice hotel, wanted one with a pool but was definitely way to cold for one and number two.... our kids were crashed out before we even left the parking lot. I guess we didn't feed them enough cotton candy! So we found a great Hotel in the area and crashed. Woke up the next morning and we were off to the ZOO! This was my favorite day, exciting day for photos! I was stoked that it was cool outside which meant even better for the sake of the animals.
