What is there to do on a fun summer day? A play date of course!
We have enjoyed many play dates with my good friend Stephanie and her daughter Bayleigh.
Darbee Rae and Bayleigh have become good buddies and I am so thankful.
When they invited us to go to Six Flags with them, I was thrilled! We planned a day but unfortunately, Ms. Stephanie got sick and had to have gall bladder surgery. Poor thing!
Luckily, she did great and recovered super fast. When she wrote me a week or two ago to see if we wanted to reschedule, I couldn't believe she would be able to go. Wow...super woman!
Darbee Rae asked me every day..."How much longer till we go to Six Flags?" "When is Sunday?" "How many more days till Sunday?"
She was beyond excited because she had never been. She was also a little nervous too....she had no idea what to expect. She new she was going to get to ride the rides, but she was a little scared of the water rides that I told her about. I had not been to the park in nearly 10 years, so I was excited too!
We headed out early yesterday morning with a very nervous little girl. HOWEVER, it didn't take long for her worries to subside. As soon as we got there, she was ready to ride.
She and Bayleigh were so happy to see each other somewhere else besides each other's house! Wow...what a cool play date huh?
We were so ready for a fun day, but certainly a HOT day. One of Darbee Rae's favorite things was the cooling mist sprayers all through the park.
She would stand in front of those and get soaked! They did feel pretty good!
Bugs Bunny Land was really cool for the kiddos.
They drove a truck.....
They played in the fountain......
They rode lots of kiddie rides. The cool part...they got to ride them all together!
Another cool part? This mama is not the skinniest of folks. I don't mind walking, but walking across the entire park in 95 degree weather on the hot asphalt with two kiddos was not my cup of tea. Luckily, Ms. Stephanie agreed! The hubbies just followed along! :) Thank goodness for the sky buckets! They were a lifesaver! Darbee Rae couldn't wait to get on these and ride "high in the air!"
They loved it!
We quickly found a water ride. The line was long, but it moved fast. Thankfully, we didn't have to wait more than about 25 minutes!
They were so cute. They were peeping thru the holes in the wall to see the water ride.
Thunder River was so much fun. Darbee Rae wasn't too crazy about it. She didn't like getting jerked around or getting splashed, but she survived.
Back on the sky buckets and across the park again! Hehe...
The Looney Tunes show offered a break to sit and rest. No cooling off though.
The girls tried cooling off with wipes. Ha!
The coolest part of the show?
Getting to meet the characters afterward!
She was the happiest little girl when she got to drive her very own car!
Daddy rode the carousel right beside her! We were having so much fun!
Darbee and Bayleigh had to ride everything together. Sometimes with us, sometimes with Ms. Stephanie and Nick.
There were cool games that were guaranteed wins for kiddos.
We gave those a try.
After finally popping a balloon, she won a purple puppy.
And the coolest game was trying to ring the bell.
They got to pick any prize!
Wow...what a deal!
They both picked out kitty cats on a leash.
Back to Bugs Bunny Land one more time.
Darbee RAe was very brave. :)
We stayed until they closed. Her favorite ride was the log ride. A water ride that splashes. We rode it twice.
We were tired...very tired...but I had a very happy little girl and that's all that mattered.
Thanks Ms. Stephanie and Nick for a fun day!
