Yesterday my husband and I went to Discovery Kingdom with our daughter and granddaughters. We had a good time. My husband and I rode a couple of rides with the girls and went on the bumper cars with them because they were too small to go on them alone. My daughter is expecting her third baby August 7, but we all feel it’s coming earlier than that. She looks ready to have the baby any time, so obviously, she wasn’t going on any rides.
We spent eight hours at the park, to all our surprise, but the girls had a lot of fun and were behaving well. One of them brought a friend also, and she was also well-behaved.
I have only one complaint. Taking your family to one of these parks is like readily handing over all your money to a bandit. The cost to get in, eat, and stay hydrated is outrageous. It cost us $44 each just to get in, and that’s because we bought our tickets ahead of time on-line. Water was $4 a bottle, and a bucket of chicken was $48. What family with young children can afford to do this very often? It’s really too bad. When my kids were young we lived in Southern CA and went to Disneyland and Knott’s Berry Farm quite a bit. It was much more affordable.
I’m glad we were able to go and have a day with the kids, but it will definitely take a bit to recover from the outing. The weather was wonderful also, 82 degrees. A really nice day.
