We started out the day planning to go to Hollywood Connection, but while we were on the freeway, I remembered that the kids had always wanted to go to Jungle Jim’s Playland, so we gave them an option of Hollywood Connection or Jungle Jim’s Playland. They chose Jungle Jim’s Playland.
Seeing as how it was their first time at Jungle Jim’s they had a blast! They loved riding on the rides and running around crazy. Lex made a girlfriend and they rode every ride together until it was time for us to leave. Shaylyn wanted to go crazy fast in the “Teacup” type ride that they have. Tanis was a sport and went on everything, even if he didn’t care for it, and Nathaniel even enjoyed the rides – until he got tired. Nathaniel’s favorite rides were the carousel and the swings. He smiled when he was on the swings and imitated Shaylyn’s horsey neighs on the carousel.

After we had enough fun at Jungle Jim’s we headed to the dollar movies to see Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian. We all enjoyed the movie and were even more excited that it only cost us $2.50 to get the whole family in. Gotta love $0.50 Monday’s!!!
After the movie we headed to my parents for a BBQ. It was lots of fun visiting with family and catching up. After we finished eating we decided to take the kids over to the school to play on the playground. Of course, they all enjoyed it and could’ve stayed all night.

However, we had to call it a night as we had to get home because the kids had school the next morning. It was a very fun day and one I hope the kids will all remember!
