Knott's Berry Farm

Today was a turning point. No crying, no strollers, no anxiety about kids running off and everyone was tall enough for the rides they wanted. Today marks the first day I actually enjoyed going to an amusement park.

This just about broke my heart. Ryder loved the flying space ship at Aussie World, but this flying ship was a different story. With every drop he let out the most heartbreaking grunting cry. I felt so helpless. I got up to ask them to stop the ride when it began to slow down and he could finally get off. Poor, poor baby.

After recovering from the trauma, he fell in love with this ride and asked to go on it over, and over and over, and over....

And Maddox discovered his love for roller coasters, I was impressed how he conquered the big ones like a champ

Today was a good day. No, today was a great day. Today was a game changer.

And you are home and still having plenty of fun. I want to go back to NZ already. Lets plan a return can we? I miss AZ too, I need to come see you ASAP! Just do me a favor and get rid of those scorpions! Oh my goodness I would have freaked out! so sad little Ryder was stung! Love you Jame.
