North Pole--Home of Santa's Workshop

Since it was supposed to be a nice day, we decided to head to the North Pole Home of Santa's Workshop.  (They give a military discount, and you know how I like discounts!)  I went when I was 6, but all I remembered was a bumpy slide on a burlap bag.  On the bright side, I remembered that we went!



I wanted to get there early, but as usual, life gets in the way.  (We won't even get started on how my project that is due in a few days is in the way too, since I obviously through that to the side to venture out)  Anyway, the whole park is kind of old and cheesy, but the kids loved it.  Junior could go on every ride which was nice.  We could always tell when he was enjoying a ride as he yells out at the top of his lungs "WEEEEE-HAAAAWWWW". 

About 2 it started to snow, and it really came down for the rest of the time we were there.  The nice part was that most people left during the first few minutes of the snow, so we never had to wait, and could stay on the rides. 

Even Em and Abs got along well enough to ride on almost every ride together.















I took a ton of pictures, of course, and I think Gunner even took one of me once.  Junior was asleep before we pulled out of the parking lot and slept the whole way home.  A quick dinner, and we had all the kids in bed by 7:30.  Let's hope they sleep!

It seems to have not changed much since we were there many years ago.

That looks like fun. And you planned this trip to recharge your paper writing batteries right? Right.

I've been here! Granted it was when I was four years old and I don't remember it, but I was excited to see that you took the trip!
