We spent a beautiful Sunday at Canada's Wonderland, just a short drive from our home on the outskirts of Toronto.
When we arrived, Snoopy (remember him from the Peanuts cartoons?) was conducting an invisible symphony and the water of the fountain was jumping around in coordination.
My husband grew up not too far from here and spent many summers working as an usher in the many theatres throughout the park. Today was just as much about nostalgia for him as it was fun for the kids.
|The grounds at Canada's Wonderland are ALWAYS impeccably kept. It really is beautiful place to spend time on a gloriously sunny day!|
|Our first ride was on the Krachenwagen, otherwise known as the bumper cars. The kids had never tried this before and were happily surprised by it's "fun-factor!"|
|Next, the whole family climbed into a pumpkin-shaped car and rose high into the air much like the "Great Pumpkin" does in the classic Peanuts TV special.|
|Could this look any yummier? (Camden has his arms folded so that he could keep his hands off while I took the photo!)|
|The other two kids chose Oreo and icing-covered Beaver Tails. These are much like deep-fried pancakes and Bryn and Afton seemed to be very pleased with their choices, too!|
This is our second year in a row bringing the kids to Wonderland. We found that they enjoy it, but our oldest is too old for the "kids" things and our youngest is much too young for anything in the main park. And our poor daughter gets lost in the middle. I think next time we go, we'll separate our big kids from the little guy and try to meet all their needs in different parts of the park. That way no one feels they are waiting in long lines for rides they just won't enjoy! a Overall, it was a lovely day out spent as family in the nearly summer sunshine.
Thanks for popping by!
Hugs to all,
