We try to get to the amusement parks around here each summer. We have 4 of them within driving distance of our house, but this year we decided to pass on the bigger parks because Allison just won't grow! She is a thrill seeker, but she is 2 inches too short to ride the big rides at those parks and always leaves disappointed. We opted to go to Michigan's Adventure on Wednesday because we knew she would be able to ride every ride there this year.
And it's cheap too! For $30 you get to go to both the amusement park and the water park. It was a tad chilly to be swimming that day, so we only spent about 2 hours on the water park side. Fortunately there was plenty to do on the other side of the park, and thankfully the lines were relatively short so we got to ride the coasters more than once. Of course they have the standard fair type rides to enjoy as well.
The park has a "Peanuts" theme, which we are huge fans of. So, the highlight for me is getting to meet Snoopy and the Gang. Usually it's just Snoopy and Charlie Brown out for photo ops, but if you are lucky, sometimes Lucy will come out too. We didn't catch her this time though :(
It was a very fun, yet very exhausting day!
