Gilroy Gardens

Welp, school officially starts next week. Julie will be in 1st grade, Andy will be in Kindergarten and Sadie will be starting pre-school. With the start of school also comes the start of soccer season. So John and I decided we should try to get in one more little family outing before school starts and our weekends are (happily) taken up by soccer. So we headed up to Gilroy Gardens.

I know I have other postings about Gilroy Gardens but this time Sadie was able to really enjoy the rides and that was a game changer. We had so much fun.
A lot of the rides John and I were to big to go on. So the kids got to go on all by themselves. The second the gate would close, Sadie would yell, "Bye Momma! Bye Dadda!!"
Andy was the only one who had any interest in the giant snake roller coaster. So he and I enjoyed that one together. It ended up being his favorite ride.
Sadie loved driving the cars. Luckily they were attached because she is one crazy driver.
You can only imagine what kind of mess this turned out to be!
I love her and her silly picture faces. Smiling is just so boring.
Deep thoughts about a purple snow cone.
This was Sadie's favorite ride. She waved at all the parents every time she went around.
She also got a little frog push toy that she has yet to put down. You can hear the little wooden clacking all over our house!
And this marks the success of a good day! We had a blast and she didn't even make it out of the parking lot.
Back at the hotel we enjoyed the pool until way past bed time and the kids put up no fight going to sleep. It was a great little getaway before the wild start of school!
