Wednesday the 11th, Dave, Kaitlynn and I went to a MLM Playdate at Olympiad. The preschool-aged kids went in with the teachers while the parents sat outside to watch them through a big glass window. Kaitlynn's group was in the back of the room so it was hard to see them, but she seemed to have fun. The last 30 minutes, parents were asked to come back and participate with their children. It was kind of free play until the last 15 minutes or so when they had parachute play.
Jumping into the pit.
This is video from MLM. Kaitlynn is in the video several times. If the embeded video doesn't work, here is the link for the video.
After the playdate, we went to McDonald's for lunch and as a meeting place to meet up with Hanna, Brandon and Grace. From there we went to Six Flags. We were able to get in for $30 (for all 3 of us) because Hanna, Brandon and Grace had coupons with their season passes! This was Kaitlynn's first trip to Six Flags! Dave, Brandon and Grace went off to ride some of the big rides while Hanna, Kaitlynn and I went to Bugs Bunny National Park. Kaitlynn met Porky Pig. Kaitlynn and Hanna rode the Grand Ole Carousel. Kaitlynn played in Bugs Bunny Fort Run (the tree house). Kaitlynn, Hanna and I rode the Yosemite Sam Tugboat Tailspin. Kaitlynn rode Taz's Twisters with another little girl. The girl kept spinning the ride and Kaitlynn didn't like it, so the ride was stopped early. We met up with Dave, Brandon and Grace and went to Hurricane Harbor where we spent the rest of the day. We played in the water and then went on the Big Kahuna. We had to split up on the ride so Dave, Brandon and Grace rode in one raft. Kaitlynn, Hanna and I rode in another. Kaitlynn was a little afraid at first but loved it so much she wanted to do it again (but we didn't). We went in the Gulley Washer Creek and Hook's Lagoon (where we spent a lot of time). It really made the heat bearable. That evening we headed to explore the rest of the park. Kaitlynn loved hanging out with Grace, Brandon and Hanna. Dave and Grace went to ride Mr. Freeze. Kaitlynn, Brandon, Hanna and I went to Scooby Doo Mystery of the Scary Swamp. Kaitlynn was a little afraid on that ride. Kaitlynn, Dave, Hanna and I rode the Grand Ole Carousel. Kaitlynn, Grace and Brandon rode Foghorn Leghorn National Park Railway. We rode Thunder River, Tidal Wave, Moon Antique Cars (Kaitlynn drove Hanna around) and the Log Flume. Kaitlynn is my little rollercoaster girl! She would hold her hands up in the air and yell "Woo hoo! Mommy can I do this again?" She loved riding the Bugs Bunny Ranger Pilots with Grace and the Elmer Fudd Weather Balloons with Hanna and then with Grace and Brandon. She fell and hurt the top of her foot when we were rushing to see when the parade started. It wasn't too bad thankfully. We stayed for the Glow in the Park Parade which was awesome! We had a blast at Six Flags! Kaitlynn loved it and keeps asking to go back to "the beach"!
Dave, Kaitlynn and I went to Applebee's for dinner after Six Flags. They have half price appetizers after 9PM or some locations 10PM. Kaitlynn slept on the booth seat, so Dave and I got to enjoy a dinner out as a couple. We were so ready for bed when we got home! What a long day!
