Gosh, how we LOVE this place!
We just found out that GG was open this week (last few days of Spring Break) so we high tailed it down here and enjoyed a beautiful day of fun in the sun!
Can you believe how pretty this park is?
These cars are a big favorite and well worth time short wait in line. We always have to go through twice because the girls take turns as driver (when they’re not fighting over the steering wheel like they are in the pic above).
After a quick detour into the playground. Then some fun and flips and slips and slides and a great big drink of water…
We’re off to our favorite roller coaster: The Quicksilver Express!
I sat in front of the girls and held my (ridiculously expensive) camera over my head to take these photos behind me on the ride. I was double lucky to get some super cute pics and not send the camera flying during the steep drops and sharp turns! I’m not sure I’d do this again but I’m glad I got these photos this time.
Maddy has her fingers in her ears because the last part of ride involves going through a tunnel filled with dynamite. Yeah, it’s a “blast”.
(Below) Isn’t Maddy beautiful? A princesses perfect profile!
Off to the twirly swirly drum ride. Gwen is actually too tall for this ride but they didn’t seem to notice. Then we did the goldfish ride and stopped to admire some pretty yellow flowers before heading to the Dip-N-Dots vendor for a snack.
Gwen has a rainbow of frozen fruity goodness on her tongue! This dessert is insanely expensive but extraordinarily good so the girls can hardly help but break into a stereo chorus of incessant begging any time they see someone manning the Dip-N-Dot booth.
The kids have so much fun at this place so I always get my best smiles at Gilroy Gardens!
