Knoebels!


Lili and Daddy took a trip to Knoebels on Wednesday to meet up with cousin Henry and his posse. Mommy had to stay home to fight off a nasty bug, so a return trip is definitely on the agenda. Lili had a roller coaster of a time - we kicked the trip off with a meltdown (the kiddie ride with the flamingos and fire trucks was apparently not cool).
Things started to calm down, we found some grub, peace and normalcy appeared to be returning to Lili-land...










Then a REALLY LOUD (kid's?) band started playing right next to our little oasis of fries and avacado. So we thought we would try a calmer ride - maybe a pleasant jaunt through the woods on a little train...Lili loves trains, right? ... right??...







Luckily, Pappy saved the day by spotting a quiet gift shop where everyone regained some composure and had plenty of stuffed animals to talk to. The turning point of the trip then took place, as Lili spotted a little playground ball in the gift shop. This little rubber ball proved to be the entertainment hit of the night for our little heroine. She had a fabulous time the rest of the evening playing with Grammy and Pappy and anyone walking by. Daddy even got to check out some of the big kid rides (the Phoenix is a great wooden coaster - always ranks as one of the top ten in the country).
Darkness fell, and Lilienna crunched her pretzels into the night and slept the whole way home. Good times.




Thanks again to Aunt Carrie for the photos...

Hi Lili and co.! - I'm at your house!!! I've been so happy to see you today, and looking forward to tomorrow etc. also!!! You have many new words and games, and I'm so glad your Daddy told me about your new blog entry. What fun you had once you found the right noisiness (that is, not TOO much noisiness!) at Knoebel's.
