Calaway Park 1 of 2

On the August Long Weekend we went to Calaway Park with Grammee & Grandad and the Russells.  We Camped at the trailer park right next to Calaway Park so all we needed to do was walk across the field to get to the park.  We, and by we, I mean the kids, had a blast going on all the rides and winning some prizes during our 2 days at the park.  Here are a few pictures and a video of Syd Dancing from our first day at the Park.

On Saturday morning we got up and went to Grammee's new trailer for a Waffle breakfast made by Sue. Grandma Lynn, James, Sandra and Claire joined us.

This ride was the snoopy plane/boat.  only ride of the day that make the kids feel a little queasy

Not feeling so good...

While the kids were on the Snoopy Plane/Boat Syd did some dancing for Grammee and I.  Very funny.  Here's a video of my hilarious niece doing her thing

Time to mellow out on the train

Then we went to do the Bi-Planes.  

A Side Note: I was very proud of my daughter.  The attendant acidentally let in too many kids so there wasn't enough room for everyone.  She jumped out of her plane and gave her seat to Ally. Awesome!

Ally with her trademark Whoooo
Zach riding in the #8 Green Plane
Zachy screaming

Then off to the boats, one of the rides that was there when I went to Calaway park as a kid

Good thing Syd was driving, all the other kids took their hands off the wheel.
