As a family, my Parents would take us camping to Knoebels every year! A big group of us would go and wow was it fun! Did I mention they have a huge pool!? With water-slides? I couldn't wait each year..for memorial day weekend!
I haven't been back in about 15 years...yeah that's a long time! As I entered the park with my Husband and Son I found myself overwhelmed. All those memories came running back...a little too fast. Don't get me wrong, I was sooo happy! Though at the same time..I wanted to go back to those days...I found myself a little sad too. It's funny how certain places can bring back such strong memories which then turn into feelings....which then make you feel overwhelmed :) :)
We went on exactly three rides :) Andrew is still a little guy...:)
Our very first ever amusement park ride......
I didn't have to hold him...but I wanted to :)
Next up..was the mini carousel with Daddy.
He is laughing in the 2nd picture :)
Then we went on the big one! The music was much louder which Andrew wasn't into..but once we got moving he was fine..
As I mentioned above, the games are super cheap...and such fun. We had to play my favorite!!! Fishing :)
My friends and I would play this game all.the.time. Seriously..it was the highlight of our trip. Not exactly why..but it just was. If you could have heard me while I was fishing with Andrew...I was so excited!
Basically, you take the "fishing pole" which has a magnet at the end of the string...into the water with fish floating by..Each fish has a number to a specific prize :) Yes, that simple...yes THAT EXCITING :) A winner each time!!
We didn't have enough time to go swimming..but we will next time. As we were walking out I had to go and check it out at least. It was exactly how I remembered it! Not a lot has changed..
It was a great day...making new memories!
We were playing the frog game..haven't played this game in over 10 years... I think I got 3 in a row at one point! Those games make you feel like a kid! Andrew just about had it at this point..it was humid..hot..and he was ready for some AC with a nap! Plus, I think there was a ride next to us making a lot of noise. But we walked away with three prizes for our Drew!
