Reading = Six Flags Fun!

During the school year the kids were able to earn a free ticket to Six Flags Discovery Kingdom by reading six hours.  Aria, Lucas, and Tyler all earned them, so we took a little trip to the Bay Area.  Lucas hitched a ride in our car and we took off!  We were the first to arrive, so we took a picture in front of the fountain.
 While we were waiting for the others to arrive the kids picked the boat ride as the first ride of the day.  A water ride! 
 And after the ride...

 We had time to ride quite a few rides in the kiddie area before Mat, Brooke, Aria, Matea, Emi, Rachel and Colby arrived.  The kids chose the swings, so we started off the day wet AND dizzy.

This Was Another Spinny Ride

Colby, Matea, Lucas, Tyler, Aria, and Lucy...Whew That's A Lot of Kids!

They Are Missing the Same Tooth

She's Quite the Roller Coaster Rider

They Took a Picture With the Walking Dolphin

All the Kids Enjoyed a Moment (But Just A Moment) Watching the Dolphins

The Kids Wanted to go on the Boat Ride Again!

And We Got Soaked!

Mat Had a Handle Of All The Kids!

Best Friends on the Cobra

Luckily Lucy Needed a +1 On the Rides, So Mom Was Able to be a Kid Too!

It was a long day, but we had TONS of fun.  It was a great way to get ready for back to school a week later.  We stopped for Chevy's on the way home and ended our day with chips and salsa.  Yum!
