Canobie Lake Park

We've been on "staycation" this week. Devin and I are now off for the summer and Erick had this week off (2 more weeks to come at the end of July!). The highlight of the week so far- aside from seeing Cars 2- has been our trip to Canobie Lake Park. We already knew that Devin loved rides from our trips to Disney World, Sesame Street, and Storyland. But this amusement park trip trumped them all- in terms of Devin loving crazy, fast, twirly rides!

Above you can see Devin waiting in line for "The Corkscrew" roller coaster- his first ever upside down coaster! Yup, he rode this one twice.

Here we are taking a mild moment on the train at the beginning of the day.

Devin REALLY wanted to ride the water ride that completely soaks you, but settled for watching it from the bridge (it was only about 74* at this point in the day- Erick and I weren't ready to be soaked!).

As it warmed up we headed over to the Log Ride where we all had a good time!
After many rides, Erick and I started getting queasy. I guess we aren't as young as we used to be! We ended the day by watching Devin play in the water park area for about an hour and a half!
This was one happy boy who announced, "This is the best day ever!"

Devin is MUCH braver that Analese, and ME for that matter. An upside down coaster? WOW! What a sense of adventure!
