It was fairly warm until the wind picked up and it started to drizzle a bit. We had a fun time and it wasn't crowded.
We learned some things. Jaide is now too tall to ride on the little kid rides, some of them any way. She is officially, even without shoes on, over 54" tall. I do believe that means she can go on any of the big rides, even at the water park when that opens! We went to the park for fright fest at the end of the season last year and she was at the magic spot where she could slouch for the kid rides and straighten up for the big rides. We figured that would be the last time she'd ride those kid rides but it was still kind of weird to see her clearly above that line on Monday. Don't cry for Jaide though, not all the kid rides have upper height limits and she'd rather go on the more exciting rides anyway. Kiree is finally above 42" (we measured about 44" at home that evening) so she got to go on more rides than she used to as well. The girls enjoyed going on this flying pirate ship thing none of us had ever gone on before.
