This past Saturday we were sitting around bored. It was a beautiful, 3 day weekend and we had nothing to do. We were itching to get out of town. But to where? Ryan came home from work and suggested we go to Great America in Santa Clara. We were in! We went back to Jenn's and booked the hotel, bought our online tickets, went home to get packed and off we went!
It was about a 3 hour drive up to Santa Clara and the kids just watched a movie and relaxed. We got there about 8:30 or 9 and it was bedtime!
The next morning we went to breakfast at IHOP then were off to the park! The park was decorated for Halloween and they were having a special Trick or Treat event in the Camp Snoopy area so we brought the kid's Halloween costumes (all from last year except for Bella's)so they could enjoy the fun!
The kids had a blast going on the rides. I was really impressed with Christopher and Riley, who went on some of the bigger rollercoasters and all the water rides. I think Bella wanted to go on the rollercosters too but she was not tall enough. She had fun on the kiddies rides though!
It was a long, fun day at Great America. We went to dinner afterwards and then let the kid's swim in the pool at the hotel for a few hours to get the remainder of their energy out before hittin' the hay!
We drove home on Monday morning. We were all tired but had so much fun! It was a great, last minute getaway to Great America!
