Nicholas brought along a good friend and we all went to dinner before going to the park. We went to Simply Burgers which was our favorite burger place when we lived in Arlington. Good memories and good food.
The boys were enjoying time together just talking. I think they could have stayed there another hour but we reminded them of all the fun that awaited and they quickly finished their food.
Rachel was ready to go from the moment we got there. She just wanted to get to Six Flags!
We all stopped by the restrooms before we left. There was a line for the men's bathroom so Stuart snuck into the women's bathroom. Yep, he's a rebel like that.
Onward to the FUN!!!
Once we made it into the park, Stuart took the boys to ride the bigger rides while Rachel and I hung out in the little kid area. Since the park is closed to the public so there are hardly any lines for the rides. We rode the Merry-Go-Round six times in a row without ever having to get off!
There was a little haunted house set up in Looney Tunes land where Rachel was able to go trick-or-treating for candy!
The Looney Tunes area has been re-arranged since we were here last year. There were some old familiar rides but also new ones like this updated version of the airplane ride that the kids have always enjoyed.
As always, there were stations of free Pepsico products scattered throughout the park.
Yes, all the Frito Lay chips, Grandma's cookies, Pepsi, Gatorade, and Aquafina you could possibly want.
But no refreshments from "our friends in Atlanta" could be found.
It was fun having time with Rachel all to myself. Usually I have both kids with me and Nicholas just naturally seems to take the lead. But since he was off with Stuart, I was able to let Rachel choose the rides and let her take the lead for a change. She even drove the antique cars herself using the foot pedals and steering at the same time.
Check out this cute video of Rachel below:
Stuart sent me pictures throughout the night of the fun they were having.
We had a great time and stayed until they closed the park at midnight. I thought for sure at least one of the kids would fall asleep on the ride back home but amazingly they all stayed awake talking about the exciting time they had.
