what i did on the 4th of July

My 4th of July started the night before when 2 of my nephews came over for a sleep-over.

The next morning they were wide awake at 7am, I told them to keep things quiet for awhile, I wasn’t quite ready to get up. A little while later we all got up and I fixed scrambled eggs, cheese quesadillas and fruit for breakfast. After getting sleeping bags rolled up again and everything loaded back in the car it was off to FUNDERLAND.With 30 tickets (15 each) in hand – they began to take turns picking the next ride.

The Carousel came first…

 And then over to the Dragon Roller Coaster – they were both very glad they were tall enough…

Then the log ride, I think they mainly got wet from the water inside the log…

They spun around in the tea cups, P had to be reminded to stay sitting down, he like to stand up so he could crank the wheel harder/faster…

They rode the train around the park ~ choo choo choo….

And then they went flying…

C wanted to ride the fishy octopus, P wasn’t interested, so he took another rise on the cars…

They both enjoyed the Wild Stagecoach, first it goes forward pretty fast and then it goes backwards…

They rode a couple rides again and then the tickets were gone ~ and time to go…

They agreed that Carl’s Jr was the place to go for lunch ~ chicken strips, fries and crazy mixed sodas ~ I think one of them mixed strawberry, orange, root beer and something else??? Of course we had Oreo cookie ice cream sandwiches for dessert…

Then we went to Freedom Park ~ it was hot and I thought they might want to cool off in the water play area. But first they hid in the rocks…

They did a little playing on the slides and ropes and then they got wet…

P did more climbing on the rocks…

And the both did some rope walking…

And then it was time to take them home ~ everyone was tired…

I went home and relaxed for the rest of the day and evening, trying to keep my puppy calm when the fireworks went off. It was a fun and busy day!
