Excursions: Six Flags!

Last spring, the kids participated in the Read to Succeed program offered by Six Flags. They each earned a free admission ticket to the park, so yesterday we headed out for a day of fun! We ended up footsore and sunburned, but it was a great day!

Watching penguin antics

I love giraffes!

The most gigantic snow cones ever! Even with only two of them, all four of us couldn't finish them off!

Lots of rides and animal shows, lots of sun, and people, and favorite Looney Tunes characters! We also learned a lot about animal conservation - each animal show was preceded with an informative talk about the importance of the animal in the show. The kids also got to pet, feed, and play tug-of-war with an elephant! (The elephant won)


  1. Wow, what a great opportunity! And oh-my-God, what's with that insane snow cone? It would feed a family of eleven!

  2. My kids LOVED Six Flags. They will talking about it all year. Ours doesn't have animals though-I'm jealous.

  3. I've never been to six flags. Always wanted to though. Looks like a great trip!

    I am starting a new link up- Field Trip Friday to showcase great homeschool field trips. I would love it if you would share this post! http://allboyhomeschool.blogspot.com/2012/08/field-trip-friday-childrens-museum-of.html Thanks!


What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.
