First amusement


Summer is officially here as of yesterday! But Justin and I got ahead of the game a few weeks ago when we took a day trip to Kings Dominion theme park…

It was a hot, but not too humid day and we made the deadline for the “kids” price admission before they raise the price for peak season ^ I made the decision to only bring my sunglasses so I wouldn’t have to change frames back and forth all day haha but at the cost of not being able to see very well without my sunglasses…

We made it ^ a beautiful morning to walk through the park! We went up in the Eiffel Tower first and got a crazy view- which I’m just now realizing I didn’t get a picture of…

We rode a couple easy rides to start, then took a short stroll through the Dinosaurs Alive exhibit they’ve got- which is always so cool to see the animatronics ^ at this point it was a little after lunchtime, so of course we went for the healthy option of Boardwalk Fries!

Weird to not show any of the roller coasters we went on, but there were a lot ^ we chilled out on the carousel after eating so our tummies could handle the bigger rides (:

We met Snoopy on the way out ^ he was so soft! Overall, it was a really fun time. Our first trip of the summer, but hopefully we’ll go back and I can get more photos of the rides and such (:

Where have y’all been this summer so far? Let me know what kinda trips you’re planning in the comments!

  1. Hello! The only trip we have planned so far is one towards the end of Aug and we plan on going to Chicago! Have you have been there?

    Looks like you had tons of fun at the amusement park!! Do you like rides that take you upside down?
    I live close to Six Flags in Missouri, so I have been there many times when I was a kid and have taken my son now and he loves all rides!

    Talk to you soon!

    1. We’ve never been to Chicago, but I know it’s on my boyfriend’s list of places he wants to visit! Have fun (: and yes, I like the quick loops- not the slow ones when you’re hanging upside down for too long haha


      1. Urgh, humidity is the worst, I live in a tropical country so I can empathize. The best way is to go to the beach and cool off later in the water hehe!

  2. I wish I had the guts to go to an amusement park. I’m always so scared, because there is so many people 😀 But I’m glad you guys had a great time 🙂

  3. I love this post! The amusement park seems so cool, I really want to go to one.
    The only plans I have for this summer is to attend a festival and stay 4 days in Lisbon.
