So we celebrated the end of my vacation with a trip to Six Flags Discovery Kingdom (thank you, Read to Succeed program for the free tickets!)! I didn't take very many pictures - we were far too busy having fun! But here are a few...
When we got there, it was overcast and cool, but the sun soon came out!
And there was mad and wild spinning
A dolphin AND Cirque show that was amazing!
And of course, there were some of our favorite cartoon characters!
It was the best day out we've had in a long time! We were at the park from opening to closing, so about 10 hours. Not too many crowds, which is why we chose a weekday. We skipped most of the shows after learning last year that overall they are just painful to watch.. constant baiting of tigers with hunks of bloody meat just to get them to jump, and so forth. We did watch a combo dolphin-Cirque act that was fantastic, with jumping dolphins, a hula-hoop dancer that dazzled the eyes, a trapezist that took our breath away, and male acrobats that were so strong and graceful we could hardly believe our eyes! Much of our time though was spent on rides... water rides, spinning rides, a [mild] roller coaster, and so forth.
It was a great ending to vacation. Today we're just hanging out around the house, as we are all worn out. I think tonight we'll watch The Avengers and share a big bowl of popcorn, and that'll be plenty of fun too!
Hope you all had a good week too!
