Knott's Berry Farm

In honor of our anniversary Brett & I headed to Buena Park, CA to go to Knott's Berry Farm.  I had not been there in forever, and Brett had never been, so it seemed like a fun way to spend the weekend.
We were really lucky because nobody was there.  Seriously there were maybe 100 people standing around when the gates opened on Sunday.  Definitely a great time of year to go.

We aren't much for crazy extreme thrill rides, but we decided to be brave and rode everything that didn't involve excessive spinning or free-falling.  So we rode this crazy contraption:

And this one:

And this one:

It was really nice that we stayed at the hotel right next to the park so we could take a break mid-day and put our feet up like the old married couple that we are. 

Back at the park, I rode this spinny ride without Brett because he has motion sickness issues, and it was a lot of fun.

We did not ride this ride:

Because those who ride it get very...


very wet.

All in all we had a great time.  Here we are at the end of the day with our happy faces on:

And here we are with Brett's "I'm sick and don't want to ride any more rides face" and my "Sympathy face."

On our drive home we got to see lots of snow in the San Bernadinos: 

And our Garmin Nuvi saved us from what was sure to be hours of traffic delay.

A word of advice:  ALWAYS trust the Nuvi.  She knows what she's talking about.

Oh, and at some point I took this cool picture of palm trees.

I just had to throw that in.  :)

What a fun trip. I don't like most rides, but my cousin and I rode this thing at Knott's Berry Farm years ago, that was like a loop--you sped forward on one leg of the loop fast enough to make any loose skin on your face pull backward, went around in a loop, the up the second leg of the loop. Then! Did the same thing BACKWARDS. It was fun, but I have no desire to ever do it again.

The palm tree photo is really cool.

Looks like fun! I am quickly joining Brett's club of motion sickness ride-haters. Stay away from tire swings with toddlers, Brett! They never want to stop spinning!
