the kiddos did amazing traveling. I'm so thankful I have such good traveling babies. They always do so well, I'm so thankful!!! And considering we all four shared a one room hotel, they slept pretty great the first night (besides W waking us up at 5:30).
That next morning we left really early for Six flags. We got in the park an hour early because we brought Coke cans (some special they were doing). It was so nice to be able to squeeze in some rides before the lines got long. And thanks to my parents watching the kids, Josh and I were able to ride several rides:)
(all his uncles and aunt chipped in their tickets at Dave and Busters and bought him this dinosaur. He was obsessed and sleeps with it every night still)
HAPPY FOURTH FROM THE KUBLERS!!!
They projected reaching maximum capacity that day, but we never felt like it was overly crowded. I also wasn't sure how much C would like the rides, but turned out he was IN LOVE. seriously, he wanted to ride everything!
Waiting for the train we snapped some family selfies.... someone wasn't amused. This was C's favorite ride and the one I thought he would like the least. It was fast, it spun while you spun it. It was a little intense for a 2.5 year old but he was in heaven as you can see!like mother like son...This photo makes me want to cry for different reasons. First because I just love him so and he looks so grown sitting like that. Two because I'm so ready for him to have a play companion in willow and this new sibling. Every day he talks and plays with her a little more and it makes me so excited for them to grow up having each other. A water park is included. I promise I'm not exaggerating when I say that C went down that slide 50+ times. The kid was addicted. And willow in that life vest just cracked us up.
The kid was so exhausted from the day that he slept right through dinner.Our tickets included a dinner and VIP seats to the firework show. It's a super good deal. We loved it so much last year, we knew we had to do it again. The fire work show is always so good, but Willow was not a fan.
Over 12 hours in a theme park is a sure fire way to make sure your babies sleep good that night!
The next morning we packed up from the hotel and went to the City Museum in downtown St. Louis. This is a must must must if you got to St. Louis. It's unbelievable and the pictures don't do it justice. You could spend all day here and still not see it all. It's just amazing! 10story slides, tunnels in the ceiling and walls to climb in, caves, farris wheel, giant slides galore, toddler areas, train rides, etc etc etc. It is endless amounts of fun and my favorite part of the trip.
We ended our trip with a stop for some frozen custard. We then drove straight home just in time for the kiddos bed time. So thankful for this quick getaway and time with my family.
