When we made it to the Kiddie rides section Otto found one with planes with blasters. He of course wanted to go on that. Mette, still hesitant at this point, chose to watch from the stroller. Despite my warnings, Otto chose to ride backwards. I don’t think he was too down with that and wanted to get off early. The beautiful thing about going to the big K before school lets out, you have the place to yourself. The kids didn’t wait in a single line and often had the ride to themselves. Getting off early is not a problem.
Next up, the cars. Mette was swayed to ride after spotting a pink car. She was buckled in to the pink car while Otto picked out a shiny red sports car. Then he saw Mette and wanted to ride with her but to get to her he had to pass a tank. Just after buckling him on the tank he said he really did want to ride with Mette,
And that was it. From then on they only wanted to go on rides together. They did everything together for the rest of the day. It was adorable. Picking rides, taking turns, sharing. It was one of the days when you are so happy they have each other and you get to watch them grow up together.
Of course, a Merry-Go-Round needed to be found for Mette. And of course, upon seeing it up close she was a bit hesitant. Then she spotted the bench where she could ride with “her big brother” as she insisted. Works for me.
These helicopters are really cool. They have an arm that you pull back and it makes the helicopter go up into the air. Otto totally remembered how to do it and was pulling the arm back before the ride even started. I took a million pictures of this, but couldn’t get any good ones. It is really a cool ride and they both had a great time with squeals of delight.
They didn’t even want Jen or I to go on the antique cars with them. Together again.
I am a huge Dippin’ Dots fan and have to get some every time we go to Knoebel’s. Mette picked out Rainbow, no surprise and Otto chose Cookies and Cream. I chose Mint Chocolate Chip, because we all now that is the best flavor.
When you are only 12 weeks old there aren’t a lot of rides for you to go on, but you do get to watch which is sometimes pretty cool.
