Six Flags

We went to Six Flags and had the greatest time! We were hesitant to even go because Carson has been going through a "high maintenance" stage in that he screams at the top of his lungs if he is in the car for more than 30-40 minutes, and once we get somewhere he has been super clingy and whiny, but with that said, he was much better than I expected and was an angel all day. The first thing we did was see the sea otter show that was entertaining but the jokes about Paris Hilton and Britney Spears sprinkled throughout were a little awkward.
From there we hustled to see Shouka the Whale. I have the fondest memories of this show from when I was little because we would make sure to get to the show early to ensure front row seats and then we would get soaked-oh, it was a blast!
Although we didn't sit close enough to get splashed, Carson was so into all of the animals.
Apparently it made a big impression on Andrew because he tried to ride Shouka!
Carson slept through the dolphin show but it was my favorite. Dolphins are super smart and they can do some pretty cool tricks.

I think this daycation was Carson's favorite so far. He got to go on his very first "roller coaster" that didn't look too scary but was like the Tea Cups on caffeine...he loved it! He rode on a choo-choo (he'll even make the accompanying hand movements),

went on his first merry-go-round and when it would stop going up and down he would "giffy up" to try to make it move.

We sat so close that Carson got to pet Alice the elephant.
At the Butterfly Pavilion Carson was mesmerized.

He almost touched a butterfly. There was so much to look at in fact that he wouldn't hold still for a photo op.

The Coi swarmed to him wherever he went, I am assuming that they liked his bright colors.
I think the best part of the day was when Andrew got to meet the "real" Super Woman. Besides her looks, she doesn't have anything on me.

Wow it is like dashavu (no clue how to spell, just sound it out!) I love that 6 flags, it is so good for kids. And I am a little jealous that Andrew got to ride Shouka! :-) Bryson loved the roller coasters, but he hated the frog ride.

Looks like you guys had a blast! We totally need to do ourselves a daycation to Discovery Kingdom. Carson is getting to be such a big boy, what fun he must've had!
