First Silverwood trip

A couple of weeks ago we went to Silverwood with some good friends and their family. It was a blast! Our kids had never been before and Jacob and Luke are still talking about it. We had 9 kids ranging from 14 months to 10 years old and 4 adults. You could say that it was a little crazy but it was nice to split up some and take the little kids on some rides that they could enjoy.

We were so proud and a little surprised by our oldest boys. Jacob was tall enough to go on all the rides and he did all but one. The one that he chose not to go on was HUGE!! Aftershock was the one that he didn't want to try and I don't blame him. I was a little scared myself. It was really fun though. The first roller coaster that he went on was the Corkscrew. It was my first roller coaster too (when I was a kid). It used to be at Knott's Berry Farm in Southern California. He thought that was pretty cool. Luke couldn't go on all of the rides but he could go on most of them. It was so funny, one of the rides has a camera that takes a picture as you are going through one of the tunnels and you would have thought Luke was crying. He looks scared to death in the picture but he loved it. Zac couldn't go on any of the roller coasters and it made him cry. I think he would have gone on all of them if he could have. He's one brave little sucker.

I took a few pictures. We were pretty busy trying to get as many rides in as we could but I got some.

Here's their first ride. They thought it was great...until the "big" rides.

Here's Zac and Chance thinking that they are pretty cool riding by themselves.
Zac decided to take a nap. I'm not real sure how he did but he did.

Here's Marly, Jacob and Chance waiting for their turn. They were all so patient between rides. Luke being goofy!!

There is also a water park at Silverwood. We didn't spend a lot of time there because the weather wasn't all that great. It was just a little chilly. Here are some of the boys playing in the wave pool.

We can't wait to go back again. If any of you want to come and go there we would love to go with you. Like I said, the older boys want to go back as soon as they can.

That sounds so fun! Poor Zac...I'm sure he'll get to go on all the rides with his brothers next year.

What fun! We never got a chance to go there before we left. I can't believe how big Marly and Chance are! WOW! Your kids are as cute as ever!

That looks like so much fun! Sarah has so many more teeth than the last time I was there. Looks like I'll have to come again soon, before she changes too much. See you next week. Mom
