Call me crazy but I love packing a picnic for our day at an amusement park. Picnic food tastes so much better after climbing a rope ladder, playing in a pit of balls, riding the balloons or spending time at the waterpark. We love amusement parks. They just scream SUMMER!!!
Idlewild is not considered the #2 Children's Amusement Park in the World for nothin'! Interestingly enough, when we arrived at the admission gates, the carload of people in front of us was from California, home of the #1 Children's Amusement Park in the World, and told the ticket taker that they were very excited to be visiting Idlewild. We already have plans to take Walnut and Peanut to Legoland when they are little older. So, we'll be able to compare and make our own designation of the No. 1 spot. But, for now...Idlewild is our fave. Peanut rode a ride by himself for the very first time! I was a little emotional but Bob was so excited. Walnut took his friend, J, with him so that they could play in the park and at the Soak Zone plus admission was buy one get one. We couldn't pass that up!. We also met our good friends at the park, after they got out of traffic! Their son, A, really enjoyed himself, too. The weather was perfect but the only bummer was that the Wild Mouse was under construction and we couldn't ride it. Nevertheless, a good time was definitely had by ALL. We opened and closed the park...true Kocanuts fashion.
