Ridin' Rides

While we are at the beach every year, Nana likes to take the kids to ride rides - this year was no different. So, on Tuesday night Nana and I took Drew, Mikayla, and Trey to Family Kingdom Amusement Park. Trey is staying with Nana and Papa for 3 weeks, and Drew loved having him there to play with! We couldn't have picked a better time to go - the weather was wonderful (not too hot, nice breezes). We all had a wonderful time, and we were exhausted by the time we got back to the house.

Trey, Drew, and Mikayla walk into Family Kingdom.

Mikayla, Drew, and Trey ride the kiddie Ferris Wheel.

Mikayla rides the canoe with a friend she met in line. Once she was on it though, she decided she wanted off and grabbed hold of the wall. She finally let go and got off as soon as she got back to the load/unload area.
Drew and Trey ride at the front of the kiddie roller coaster while Mikayla rides behind them with another friend she met in line. This was the first time Mikayla had ever ridden a roller coaster - I couldn't believe she rode!

Trey and Drew also rode some of the "little" rides with Mikayla.
Mikayla loves the kiddie swings - I'm not sure what kind of face Drew is making, but he doesn't look real enthused.
Drew and Mikayla rode the kiddie bumper cars. It was the first time Mikayla had ever ridden by herself (when they were younger they both rode in the same car), and she didn't like it at all.

Drew also rode the Pirate Ship for the first time - I think he tried more of the big rides this year because Trey was there and rode with him.
Trey and Drew ride the Tilt - a - World while Mikayla (below) laughs at the faces they were making while riding!

Drew also rode the big swings and the ride below for the first time ever!

Trey and Drew wanted to ride the Log Flume so we saved that for last since Nana and I knew they would get wet. Try loves this ride, but it was the first time Drew had ever ridden it! As he came around this curve he started yelling to me "mama, I got scared on that big hill". I reassured him that he would be getting off in just a minute. He was trying to stand up/get off before he got all the way in the load/unload area.

Drew riding all of these "big" rides, and Mikayla trying more of the "kiddie" rides is just another example of my little ones growing up!
