Last week my Katie and I took the kids (cousins) to Silverwood Theme Park for the day and it was SO much fun! We wanted one last trip before summer break ended and let me tell you, it was so much fun. The kids each earn free tickets to Silverwood for reading and it is such a sweet reward.
We were all smiles when we got to the park.
We headed to everyone’s favorite ride first…the log ride (much like Splash Mountain).
After that, we headed to the BIG wooden roller coasters.
We were all feeling really brave…
And then we got off the rollercoaster and Maddi swore off all big rides for the rest of her life. However, she went on one more roller coaster… and as you can see, she was thrilled!
We needed to slow down a bit because those coasters are BIG so the kids went on the bumper cars.
And then we took turns driving the Krazy Kars.
And then we decided to go on the corkscrew, which goes upside down. Katie and I took turns taking the kids because Maddi had sworn off all roller coasters at this point.
Meanwhile Guy, Ryle, and Ryann were screaming that it was the best ride of the day! Ha! Those brave little souls and adrenaline junkies.
After that we ate an early dinner on a train ride. The train ride lasts about 30 minutes, takes you around the entire park and there is also a train robbery where all the money collected goes to a local children’s charity.
After the train ride we went to the kiddie rides and rode the log ride one more time for good measure and ended the day with FIVE scoops of ice cream in each of their cones!
It was such a fun day. I love that these kids have grown up spending so much time together. Cousins are the best! Come back tomorrow when I will be sharing a peek inside my classroom! I hope you have a great day!
