Life is an Amusement Park

"Life is like a trip to the amusement park. You are given opportunities to enjoy the view from way up high, take joy in gliding along the twists and turns, savor the sweetness of a myriad of treats and have fun playing all the games. Make sure to enjoy all that it offers while you are here." ~Mama Hen

When Little Chick woke up this morning we looked at how nice it was outside when we let our little doggie out and I asked her if she wanted to go to Six Flags. She did a dance and her face lit up, so I took it as a yes! I love taking a drive with my daughter to lots of fun places. Having season passes makes it easy for us to pick up and go this summer! What more do we need? It is a beautiful day, we have each other and it is always fun to take a little jaunt up North. Little Chick considers an hour and half drive a "trip" because she gets to watch a DVD for part of the drive. We are living in the moment and loving our super fun summer!

Come and join me in Thanksgiving Thursday tomorrow! Just grab my Thanksgiving Thursday button in the left sidebar, write five things you are thankful for and let me know so I can add your link.

  5. Nice pics-they make me think of those credit card commercials: Season's passes...$65.99, a tank of gas for the trip up North...$50.00, the smile on Little Chick's face...priceless! Season's passes to theme parks, museums, water parks, etc. really are treats that keeps on treating you to fun times all year long. -EW

  12. Little Chick is having THE BEST SUMMER EVER! Thanks for sharing with us. Although, at times your site makes me feel like such an inferior parent. I know that's not at all your intention, but you serve as a reminder that sometimes I "Must do better".

  30. We used to live 5 minutes from six flags Maryland. Five. Minutes. Never went even once. I am an intense roller coaster avoider so figured there was really no point. Looks like you ladies had a blast, though! Thanks for stopping by pBd!

  34. I so need to join your Thursday Thankful! I'll try next week! I am thankful my husband is getting a job that won't take him out of the country, that two of my guys made their school soccer teams, that I am finding that joy in my life, and that I was feeling bad due to a sinus infection and not because I was getting old! LOL
