Our day at Kings Dominion

This past Saturday we took our first family trip to Kings Dominion which is about 1 1/2 hours South of where we live.  To be honest I haven't been to KD since I was a young kid and Kristian hadn't been since he was a teenager. I don't do roller coasters.

The reason we went was because it was a company outing with my job. We all met there at 10:30am when the park opened and eventually all split up so that everyone could do their own thing but we all met up for lunch together at 1:30. Hunter was the youngest child of the group and still a bit too small for even the kiddie rides, you have to be 36" and he's only 33". So Kristian and I pushed him around the park in his stroller and spent a lot of time in the carnival games section where Kristian won Hunter a few new stuffed animals.

Even though we didn't go on any rides (which I was fine with since as I mentioned I don't do roller coasters) we still had a good time walking around and people watching. Some of the people at Kings Dominion make the people at Walmart look classy. Just sayin.

We left after lunch because we were tired and had seen everything we wanted to see. Some of my coworkers stayed until the park closed at 10pm! Hunter slept the whole 2 hour ride home and then slept from 8pm - 8am (he never sleeps that late on weekends) so I guess he was worn out!

I dig this guy. A Lot.

One of the many roller coasters I would never go on.

Trying to win his boy a new toy.

Hunter was slightly terrified of the Chick-fil-A cow.

Hunter was too fascinated by the fountains to look at the camera.

Slightly sweaty but having fun.

It was a successful first trip.

Hunter loves the new Scooby that daddy won for him. It's the same size he is.

Glad you had a good time :) That Scooby Doo is awesome. We never win the good toys when we play those kinds of games.

Such a good looking family! I cannot believe how freakin' blonde Hunter has gotten, btw!

What a fun trip!! I loved every single KD roller coaster when I was younger, especially the Anaconda, but I'm pretty sure I wouldn't go near any now. I would, however, love that enormous Scooby Doo! Lucky Hunter!
