Wait? More fun?

I had every intention of getting right back to work on the Monday following the cruise. Honest, I did. But when our daughter called over the weekend and asked if we’d like to join them at Knoebels Amusement Park on Monday, well, it didn’t take us too long to say – “Of Course!”

Even though we’ve only been to Knoebels once before (during our 2015 Adventure with granddaughter Hayley)

we are big fans of this amusement park. We love that there is no admission fee, that you can either purchase an “All Rides” wrist band or just purchase tickets for the rides you want to take. The food isn’t too pricey, the rides are everything from vintage to state of the art, and the general feel of the park is oh-so-very family friendly.

Grams and Pops took care of some of the more mild rides.

(Despite the look on Maddie’s face – she WANTED to go on that ride!)
Lara, Herbert and Maddie did all the big roller coasters, but only Maddie and Herbert were brave enough to do the StratosFear!

Spending the day with Lara and Herbert and these three cuties

was a total delight. We got home late that night, exhausted but happy and content. It was a totally unexpected, totally delicious, impromptu day of fun!
Here are some additional pictures of our time at Knoebels. But I think this one, taken by Herbert, is one of my favorites!
