There's this kid amusement park that is about 45 minutes away from our house, and I, like, really wanted to go. Yeah, I wanted to take my kids. Yeah, I wanted them to have fun and get on rides, and possibly barf from the utter excitement of getting on their first roller coaster. But really, deep down, I wanted to go for myself. There, I said it. I knew we would have just as much fun getting on the rides with our kids. Seriously, I would NEVER go to a regular amusement park with my family. My little babes are way too small to take to Hershey Park or Six Flags. We would spend serious money to just wait in line and then what, go on rides alone while one of us stays behind with the kiddos? No thank you. So, last week we finally went to Dutch Wonderland. Seriously, IT WAS AWESOME. Do you see my hubby's face in this picture below?

Can you see the smile on my face?

The happiness on that child's face is priceless. Or in this case, about $30 for a whole day of fun!

Look at Mela in that picture below? There were kids smaller than her freaking out about this ride but not my girl! She was like, "Get out my way, ya'll! I got a ride to catch!"

After riding almost every ride (some twice) we realized we were sort of hungry. We looked to see what time it was. We had been at Dutch Wonderland for five (five!) hours before we even bothered to stop long enough to check the time. I'm telling you, we had the best freakin' time. And I'm not just talking about the kids, ya'll!

We ate what we almost always eat at public places, french fries. Why must meat be in everything, I ask you! Oh well. Theses fries were so good.

We spent over seven (seven!) hours total at this awesome place and called it a day.

We stopped at Qdoba's for dinner and then grabbed some Coldstone next door. Um, check out Mela. There was more ice cream on her person than in her tummy.

The End.


  1. That picture of Mela with the icecream cone is Hilarious!! Love it! We have yet to go to Dutch Wonderland and have been wanting to go. I hear it is great =) Maybe next season we will finally try it out!

  2. You should go Mindee! Your kids would have such a great time! They're still open Saturdays and it won't be as hot as in the summer, just sayin' :)

  3. Sounds like you had a terrific day! Love the picture of Mela eating her ice cream! So funny!
