This past school year the kids earned some free tickets to Santa's Village Azoosment Park for reading. I have lots found memories of amusement parks as a kid and I want to pass the joy on to my kiddos. Jeremy, however, is not such a fan. He's a good sport though and was happy to go and watch us have fun. He also did go on a few of the rides like the bumper cars and the fire truck. One of things I like about Santa's Village is that they have the traditional rides like the tilt-a-whirl, the pirate ship, and the carousel; but they also have some unique rides like the fire truck and the antique country cruisers. There is also have a petting zoo, a reptile house, and a parakeet house. The park is geared towards younger children so most of the rides aren't 'scary' and only a few of the rides have a height restriction. The park is also fairly small - I think this is perfect because then you don't have kids complaining of achy legs.
Currently, they are having their fall fest...which to tell the truth was a little odd. The park obviously has a winter/Christmas theme so it felt a bit like a brighter Nightmare Before Christmas. The kids though are extremely fascinated by that movie so they actually enjoyed it.
It drizzled on us for part of the day but didn't spoil any of our fun. I was so proud of my kiddos who despite the fact that the weather was dreary, their spirits stayed bright. They are such troopers! I wish I could say they get it from me but it's all Jeremy. I can tend to get anxious and grumpy if things don't go according to my plans but nothing seems to faze that man. So grateful he's my partner in parenthood.
