Our 1-day vacation

I've been asked several times recently, "What did you do this summer?" We moved. Period. End of story.

However, we did take advantage of the beautiful summer we've been having and took a day trip to our favorite nearby theme park, Dutch Wonderland. We began our adventures above the park on the Sky Ride.

We then hopped on the Joust Family Coaster. Despite doing OK on it last year and looking excited to do it this year, Leah did not enjoy the ride.

Molly, on the other hand, loved the little coaster.


Both girls enjoyed the Leapin' Frogs.

The Panda Party was fun too.

They got to ride a pony as well. Molly took the larger one.

Leah took the smaller pony, which was just the right size for her.

The Fun Slide is one of the girls favorite things to do.

They didn't miss the Merry-Go-Round either. And yes, that's me on it with them (this picture sponsored by Dramamine).


Ride on, Leah

We ate lunch at Merlin's Restaurant. After lunch, Merlin did a magic trick for Molly that amazed her.


Leah was sure that she would not be outsmarted by the trick, but to her surprise the ball in her hand magically became two.

Leah wasn't big enough to ride the Flying Trapeze yet, but Molly and Chad had fun on it.

Unlike the little girl next to her, Molly was excited to ride the Frog Hopper. After the ride, Molly looked a little less excited and a little more nauseous.

The girls may not look it, but they're actually aspiring monster truck drivers.

Off-road Rally

We took in a high-diving show of the frog prince. It included some impressive diving from the frogs and the princess.

Molly had fun on the Wonder Whip, though perhaps less so than she had last year with her buddy.

We went for a drive on the Sunoco Turnpike. Leah and I took one car and Molly and Chad took the next.

A nice, relaxing drive.

To end our day, we took a ride on the monorail.
