June 4 – A Fun Day at Dutch Wonderland Amusement Park with Jack

The weather was perfect for a day at the park with Jack – sunny yet cool.

We arrived as the park opened and could enter the various rides without a long wait. Jack’s favorite ride was in a faux canoe that he steered on a rail on a large pond. Before we left the park, he had ridden it three times.

An aerial ride to the other end of the park gave us an overview of the rides and activities. We looked down on the newest ride on which riders laid on their stomachs on plastic shelves. We, Jack and I, chose to become more knowledgeable of this ride later.

With Jack, we rode on bumper cars twice, a medium sized roller coaster, motorized antique cars, a large slide on burlap bags and a wet (for Kathleen) water ride.

Two of the three of us had a light lunch before continuing our ride experiences. :) See photos.

We left the park after 5 hours just before the sprinkles started falling.

Kathleen and I came back to our RV without Jack to recuperate. My head still does not feel right after the ride-not-easily-forgotten. :)

Jack will join us again next weekend for a sleepover and maybe some more time on the basketball court and in swimming pool.

Have a great week.
