A couple of weeks ago we went to Wonderland, a little mini amusement park, in Amarillo.  Luke's school did a fundraiser where they sold tickets so I bought enough for all of us to go when I could get them at a discount.  It was so much fun!  I was nervous that Luke would refuse to go on anything and we would last about 25 minutes before Luke demanded that we had to leave.  But both the boys loved it!  Their first ride was the kiddie cars, and Luke tried to hide from the noise.  

See Luke covering his ears?

After that ride, Luke asked for his headphones.  He was scared of the train's whistle and the park was pretty loud with roller coasters whooshing by and people screaming.  But once he got his headphones on he was totally cool!  We rode the train next.

On the train:

The ski lift just went from one side of the park to the other and then back again.
I'm not sure why, but I LOVED this ride.

Then we went on the log ride.  This ride went up and then fell down a waterfall.  It was Luke's idea to go on it.  I wasn't sure how it would go but we decided to let him try.  This is how it went: BADLY.  Luke hates to get his clothes wet, and the bottom of the log was covered in several inches of water.  His feet got wet.  And then once he realized we were going down a big slide, he freaked out.  Even though he had asked to go on the big water slide.  He screamed from the top of the slide until about 5 minutes after we got out of the boat.  But he recovered.  I pulled out his spare socks and he went into the arcade to stare at some ceiling fans for a little bit.  Micah was totally unphased by the plummet and went with Jared to drive the bumper cars.

Looking at the fan

Micah could have driven cars all night!
He wouldn't even look at as, he was so intent on driving!


Micah loved the bumper cars.

Luke did not!

We were there for about 3 hours and could have stayed longer if it wasn't already way past bedtime.  So fun!  Glad that Amber and Trevor could join us!
