WW: Kings Dominion ~ photo dump!

This year, Matt and I decided to get season passes to the local amusement park, Kings Dominion. We figured it would be a great way to spend a half day or even a whole day this summer. I was really nervous about how Lucas would do and how we would warm his food and bottle, because we all know he likes them HOT. Well, to our surprise there is a new feature at the park this year called the Family Care Center. They have a diaper changing station, highchairs, nursing rooms, bottle warmers, a microwave and 2 private bathrooms. It was awesome! Made the day so much more relaxing not worrying about how we would warm bottles and change diapers.

When we got there, we started in the kids area, (Planet Snoopy). Logan is just under the height requirement for all of the rides in there, so they both can ride everything together. A few things were a little small for them so we passed on those but they really enjoyed the "big" roller coaster in that area,"The Woodstock Express". After we hit some of those rides, we ate lunch ... for $45! Needless to say, we will be packing lunch from now on! We moved to the BIG rides. Abby was the only one willing to ride the "Drop Tower" with Matt. She is a brave little girl that's for sure! All three of them rode two other rollercoasters before we had to head back to the kids area to feed and change Lucas. They enjoyed it, but Abby knows now that she may be just a little too small to ride the big ones!  She gave them a try though. At this point, we had been at the park for 4 hours so we hit one more ride, which I rode with Logan then Matt and Abby rode together. We had some Dippin Dots then headed home!

We had a great time and the kids of course can't wait to go back. I will be remembering the sunscreen for sure next time! I totally underestimated this April sun, haha! Here are some pictures from our day (they were all taken with my iPhone so excuse the bad quality of some of them)!

Hi Krystle! This place looks awesome! We have Sandusky up here and the huge rides there but I haven't been there yet and Drew's only 2 so not really his cup of tea just yet. Looks like you had a great time! I'm new to your blog and can't wait to waste my afternoon looking around more. Hope you'll stop by and follow back if you like what you see!
