On Friday we were going to start heading up toward the LA area to visit my Mom's cousin, Jan and then we had a hotel up there as well to spend out last night in California. My Sister wanted to go to the Zoo, but we wanted to go to Knott's Berry Farm. So I took Mom and we headed up to Knott's (up by LA) and Jenni took Dad and headed toward the zoo.
My Mom and I took this advantage and went to several quilt stores on the way up! It was a lot of fun, but I have to admit, I was tired out by the 4th one! I will blame it on the "no money" and getting "hot" and "thirsty". I did find these cool quilt hangers! They were awesome! All made out of wood. I had to take a picture so Trav could see them and maybe make me some!
I guess the zoo wasn't as fun as they would have hoped, I think it was due to the numerous hills. So we ended up getting to Knott's Berry Farm at the same time. We started out with Jenni and I taking Cali and Brandon on this awesome wooden roller coaster. We waited for an hour but it was sure worth it! Brandon was so scared that he wanted to leave as soon as it was over!
Meanwhile everyone else went to go ride on a train. As soon as Nathan saw that they had a train at the Park, he wanted to go.
There were SEVERAL more rides that I would have wanted to go on, but everyone was beat! All tired and ready to call it a day. So we stopped at some gift stores on the way out, and started to head toward dinner.
The whole park was a Western Theme. It was pretty cool. They did have the employees dressed up and even had some rein actors.
Knott's Berry Farm if you don't know is themed after the Charlie Brown gang.
We then met up with Cousin Jan and went to dinner. Nathan had a hard time with the building because it had white plastic snow on top. He couldn't understand why they called it snow when it clearly wasn't. After dinner we headed toward our hotel where we all crashed for the night.
I did want to share pictures of our first hotel that we stayed at. At first I wasn't that impressed, I mean no heated pool...but then I came to appreciate all of the beautiful flowers and greenery around the area. These plants and trees were all out side our door in the patio area. It was so beautiful!
