The family and I kicked off the first weekend of December with some holiday cheer. We’ve not put the tree up yet but we had some fun at Six Flags Holiday in the Park. We went last year but it was so cold we couldn’t fully enjoy it. This year the weather was perfect.
Thanks to Six Flags for the complimentary tickets.
I snapped a picture of the kids and the big tree soon as we arrived. It was early in the day so the lighting hadn’t taken place yet. It was still beautiful and festive. Also my kids are getting so damn big, I just keep staring at them.
The Manchild got a cell phone for his birthday and when he whipped out his cell phone to take his first picture I insisted that I be in it, then the rest of the fam had to be in it too. Ha! This is our new teenage life.
After our selfie, we headed to the luncheon and ate graciously. Then we were treated to a Holiday Show, filled with some of our favorite Christmas songs. You know I was singing and clapping along. After that, we headed off to the park.
You can’t go to the amusement park without taking a picture with the characters. Listen, Linda, the shorts on this reindeer was one of the highlights of my day. They so so freaking tight that I giggle every time I look at them. The random girl in the picture works at the park. I’m not sure why it was necessary for her to be in our pictures but whateve. This is presently my new favorite picture of us. LittleCuteLips still doesn’t like the characters so I’m always her buffer.
Time for some rides, nothing crazy we aren’t roller coaster type of people. Plus it is winter, I don’t need to go that fast with all that wind blowing in my face. I also don’t believe in being spun around in a circle so Babe and the kids got on this one together.
Next up was a traditional carousel ride and a family selfie.
Please get into this ostrich I’m on.
Then we let the kids drive us around. The Manchild drove Babe around on the Antique Cars.
Then LittleCuteLips drove me around, she realized how hard it is to control a vehicle. At one point she was yelling HELP ME! It was funny to see her freaking out. She must have missed that track we were on that wouldn’t allow us to run anyone over.
It is getting later in the day and a bit cooler so we had to bust out our hats. We are seated and ready for the show. We forgot to include Babe in our selfie.
The shows are always corny yet funny. I always find myself laughing.
It is lit!
The S’Mores campfire pits were such a dope idea. They gave us complimentary s’mores kits so we could roast them over an open fire. Duh! We also used them to warm up. I’m just saying they are dual purpose.
We couldn’t leave without visiting the big house.
Christmas is my favorite time of the year; Christmas lights are my absolute favorite. It makes me feel like a kid.
LittleCuteLips told Santa what she wanted. I don’t know what she asked for but I hope she tells me so I can get it.
Six Flags always does such a great job rolling out the red carpet for us. Although we had fun, we also bonded over laughter and silly behavior. This was a great start to our holiday season.
