Holiday Ro-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-ad

That song from the Chevy Chase vacation movie kept going through my head as we were driving to Holiday World on Sunday. I kept singing it in the car and driving Hubs crazy I'm sure :) The drive from our house to Santa Claus, Indiana was not bad at all, maybe 2 and a half hours.
Here are the kiddos giving Santa some love. AP was quick to point out that this was not the "real" one.

C and I are on these swings. Can you find us?? I think this was C's favorite ride. He said that he likes the ones that make his stomach tickle :)

AP and I did every single kiddie ride while C and daddy were in line and riding the "big" roller coaster, The Raven. C said "that was fun, but I don't ever want to do it again, ok?"

C and I rode the Liberty Launch, another ride that C does not want to ride again :) I, on the other hand, love rides like that. Bring on the heights!

The kiddos are anxiously awaiting the "real" Santa to make his appearance. Santa read them a story and they sang a few songs. AP kept interrupting the story and yelling out "I want a baby mermaid!"
We don't know this little girl, but she was a cutie and she wanted to share Santa's lap with AP. C made sure to tell Santa that he wanted a "real surfboard" for Christmas. Um, ok, do the elves make those?That's C and Daddy in the front. All four of us rode this ride the first time, but AP was not a fan and the boys wanted to do it again.

Day 2. Weary parents. On a kiddie train.

It was a great little vacation. I highly recommend this park and the water park to any families who live nearby. It is family owned and operated since some time in the 30's. They are apparently a family of faith as there was praise and worship music playing throughout the park. Hubs and I both commented about all the employees being so happy and looking like they really enjoyed working there. And the lady that you see on all the commercials pumping you up about the free Pepsi and sunscreen, she's there to greet you in the parking lot! I already miss the endless flow of free Diet Dr. Pepper....

Sounds like a great place to visit...but a bit more than a two hour drive for us! I bet it was adorable to hear "I want a baby mermaid" intermixed with the story! That gave me a big smile!
