(Yes, I found my camera. Well, Wendell found it;)
I haven't been to Knott's Berry Farm since I was a kid. Last year we bought year long passes to Sea World and were able to go in May from the beach house, July from our yearly vacation on the beach, and October just for fun. This year we couldn't find the same kind of deal for any of the other amusement parks, and we didn't want to do Sea World again so soon. I started shopping around for the cheapest deal we could find so we could go somewhere from the beach house again this year. KBF was the clear winner. When I called about a group rate they told me that the local Burger Kings had coupons that made the price cheaper than the group rates. Anyhow, it was a great deal.
(Hot air balloons and snoopy skate. Mitchell's favorite ride. One word....whiplash;)
O.K , KBF is kind of like a ghetto Disneyland. But the rides were pretty fabulous. Camp Snoopy was great for the toddlers. I was impressed by all of the fun rides they had that were appropriate for the littles.
Brenley was fearless! The bigger and scarier the better. She was right at the height limit for many of the rides. Most of the employees read the line in her favor. Everyone except the keeper of the tea cups (sombreros) super dangerous! She got really bugged that she couldn't go on all of the rides that the big kids went on. This is just another example of how Bren is not like my other kids. Sometimes I think she must have been switched at birth. She and the other toddlers loved the the carousel the best, though. It turned out to be too much for my delicate condition, and Rachael was recruited to go on as many time as miss B wanted.
Some of the bigger kids were super fearless and went on really scary rides with the grown ups( I'm not ashamed to admit that one of them actually made me pee my pants;) I'm pregnant, people!) There were plenty of moderate rides that were really fun for the kids that were not quite as fearless.
All of the kids took pictures with Snoopy, but I am not sure any of them even knew who he was! Generation gap? When I was going to ASU I waited tables out in Scottsdale. One day I waited on Charles Schultz(creator of Charlie Brown/Snoopy) and didn't even realize it. One of my coworkers pointed him out, and when he signed his credit card bill it was obvious! Who wouldn't be able to recognize that signature after all of those years fighting over the Sunday comics. I think I kept it;)
