Over the weekend, Jason took Ethan to the Miramar Air Show, which he has been wanting to do since Ethan was just a baby. Craning my neck all day to see jets fly really fast is not my thing, so I decided to let them do a Daddy/Son Day. And then, I got an email asking me to attend Knott’s Berry Farm Camp Spooky VIP Breakfast. Without Ethan, would it be possible for me to take just the girls? No. So I forced my mom to come with me.
For those of you who don’t know, Knott’s Berry Farm is America’s oldest theme park, and I’ve been going there myself since I was a kid. I was really excited to share some time with just Lila and Mia, and to see them experience it all themselves for the first time.
They were not fans of Snoopy. Or the “friendly monsters’. Pretty much anything coming at them that was bigger than me? Not having it. But we did have fun!
Now I’m thinking that maybe they were still too little to enjoy the park. They just turned two, and on most of the rides, they had a look of terror and were red from lack of breathing. They were more happy just walking around and getting the trick-or-treat candy that was being handed out.
This is a quick thank you to Knott’s for the invite…we had a blast! I’m even getting year round passes because I know that Ethan will love it, and the girls will in time, too.
On the train. Yes, Lila is giving the obligatory The Business. This was their favorite ride.
Of course, I did get to see some friends. I missed seeing Wendy from Wendy Will Blog, and that was a HUGE bummer! I did run into my friend Jenny of Karma (continued…) and got to talk to her long enough to plan a lunch date (I’m hoping without the kids so we can enjoy each other!). And I FINALLY got to meet the super cute and very funny Leila from Don’t Speak Whinese and even was lucky enough to
force her to take get her to take a picture with me!
All in all, I had a blast, and so did the girls. Thanks again to Knott’s for having us to breakfast and a sneak peak at Camp Spooky!
Disclosure: I was invited to Knott’s Berry Farm to attend the VIP Breakfast Camp Spooky event. I received parking, breakfast and park admission for free. I blogged about it because I wanted to, not because Snoopy forced me to…he didn’t even ask me to! All thoughts & opinions expressed here are mine.
