This post is a collaboration with Kennywood Amusement Park. In exchange for sharing these deals with you, we’ll be taking the kids to their Holiday Lights. Thank you, Kennywood, for this opportunity!
One of my favorite memories as a kid was going to Kennywood for my Pappy’s Railroad picnic every summer. I can smell the Potato Patch fries and hear the shrieks from the Thunderbolt for miles.
At our annual Kennywood picnic day, my dad did his tradition of bringing dollars for the duck and fish ponds. Apparently, one of our kids is a ‘lil lucky duck.
Because you see, all that they knew was “pick a duck, get a ‘lil stuffy prize”.
Last year when we went to Kennywood, our ‘lil girl rode a few rides, but was by no means brave. In May, she got a bit better, showing her ‘lil brother the ropes. This year, oh.my.gosh.
Two of her 2nd cousins are a year older than her, and I remembered them riding the Jack Rabbit last year. As we walked to KiddieLand, I decided to “just in case” see if she was tall enough. After measuring up, she kept telling me she was going to ride the big roller coaster. I didn’t believe it one bit.
Sunday seemed like the perfect day for a trip to Kennywood, so off we went! The day was spent in Kiddieland, and we were surprised how ‘lil Man wasn’t as into it as we expected. A had an amazing time, but ‘lil Man was a bit scared to leave our side.
