A Day At DelGrosso's Amusement Park!

To celebrate X's birthday...my parents, Devon and Cory (along with my aunt and cousins) all went to DelGrosso's Amusement Park. It was a super sunny day....and HOT to say the least! ;)
The kids had a blast going from ride to ride. Devon and Cory got there earlier than the rest of us and got us a great picnic area under trees. (Thank goodness....because I ended up spending alot of time there...I will explain later in the post...)


After having some lunch provided by my mom and aunt....bumper cars were ridden! The first 3 cars there are my family. Jaxson was too short to ride too...he was so sad...but I know everyone else had a great time!


Jaxson riding the Casino Ride with daddy....


Here is a pic of Chris with my cousins, Molly and Mariah....riding this super scary ride....where you go really far up high and then it drops you...this is a pic of them on their way UP! ;)


Chris and Jaxson taking a breather.... (with my aunt in the background)...

My dad and mom with all three of my children....(and Madelyn being silly!)....

The kids loved the merry go round! They rode this numerous times!!!

Chris and me....I had my hair down and curly and pretty....but with the heat and all...I had to put it up off my neck and back....


And here is my dad takin' a lil snooze....
I spent quite a bit of time laying in this lounge chair during the day too.....


I missed alot of my kids enjoying the park. I rode 3 rides...and with the heat and the rides combined...I got super sick. I felt horrible. I was so bummed I missed alot of my kids riding on things....but they had fun and that's what is important! Chris had a lot of fun too...he rode lots of things. I wish I wasn't so easily sickened! I have decided that if I ever go to an amusement park again...I will *just* take pics...no rides for me!! And, I may take a super huge sun hat too! ;)

But overall...everyone had a really fun time! Thanks Mom!!! :o)

  1. Sorry you weren't feeling well. I can't do the rides anymore. I haven't been able to since my early 20's. I just go along to hang out with everyone.

    Glad that Chris and the kids had a blast!

  2. Katy~ What a wonderful day to spend with family even if you were a little ill. I can't take the heat either and sometimes it just makes me sick especially if it's humid. I don't do rides at all, I am just the official picture taker :)

    Blessings,Joann

  10. That's a bummer that you got sick. I can totally relate. I do not do well on pretty much any rides. I even took Dramamine this year and still got sick when I took Lily on a ride.

  11. I feel for you! Know that you are not alone. I get the same way. I learned my lesson at Knobles... lots of water, shade and a big sun hat! But those parks are so nice and budget friendly. Have you been to Lake Tobias? A great inexpensive zoo.
