Saturday was opening day at Great Adventure. My parents had gotten all of us season passes for Christmas, and we had intended on going on opening day, but our Saturday had been so busy so we decided to go on Sunday. We first hit the nearby outlets, where I was finally able to get Jason a pair of sneakers. So sad that the boy went until 18 months in a shoeless state!
From there it was on to the park. Of course the weathermen failed us again and instead of the 10% of a late shower, we got noon-time rain. What the heck? We waited in the car for a bit, hoping to wait it out, but it showed no signs of stopping, but thankfully wasn't too heavy. So we decided to at least go in an process our passes. Since we were there we let Tyler do a few rides. Jason spent his time NOT in the stroller, but instead out walking, and of course stomping in puddles in his brand new shoes. It would have been pointless for me to try to stop him as it is apparently hard-wired for boys to be drawn to puddles.
My parents happened to be sitting in a pavilion where they were about to perform a "show" so we decided to check it out. It was the looney tunes characters in a "sing off". Apparently Tyler found this to be absolutely hysterical, and Jason was amused by well. For the record, my dad fell asleep. LOL.
We even got to meet the "cast". Tyler loved it, Jason not so much...although he did later give tweety bird a hi-five.
As you can see, Jason loved his first carousel ride. LOL.
And Tyler enjoyed some more rides by himself. Apparently that is quite fun to branch out without mommy now that he's FINALLY 42 inches and can ride things without me.
After maybe 5 rides it had gotten too cold and rainy so we decided to head out and go to the safari instead. Ty loves the safari because he gets to exit the carseat for once and sit in the front seat of the vehicle. He reads all the signs and searches for the animals. Jason loved it too. He was sooo busy staring at animals and trying to get our attention in case we had not seen the animals. He did the most "talking" I had ever heard. Soo cute.
