Lines, Lines, Lines

We went to King's Dominion as a family on Saturday for a few hours, and we had a great time. I don't think we would have had fun though without our season passes! Traffic was bad, and by the time we got to the park, the lines were the longest I've seen all season. It was all okay though, because we can go back. Beauty of the season pass!
We spent the few hours we had taking the kids on all the kid rides. You know, it doesn't matter how busy the park is, the kiddie rides are never too busy. The kids got to ride on lots of things. I love watching their faces light up with joy when they are on the rides. I do think Andrew is starting to get a bit bored with the rides that just go in circles. Yet, he was pretty good about not complaining. David and Andrew did get to go on the small roller coaster, Scooby Doo. The log flume was a long line, but we saved that for after dark when the line really drops off. That is one of our family favorites. In a year or two, Christina will be allowed to ride that too. Here are a few pictures of our day.We saw this frog while waiting in line. One advantage of long lines is that you get to see things that you would otherwise miss.
Christina is on the kiddie version of the swinging boat ride. Looks like she will love roller coasters in the future!

So, in spite of taking forever to get to KD and the long lines, we still managed to have a fun evening together. I'll try to forget the girl fight I walked in on in the bathroom! The bathroom attendant had to break it up and tell the girls it wasn't worth fighting over. I guess they had been swearing and angry. Turns out one claimed the other had cut in the bathroom line! I'm glad my family had fun at the park instead of becoming angry. Lines teach patience, right?!
