Family Fun

Our daughter and son in law were taking their three kids to Marineland in Niagra Falls, Ontario and asked us to go along. We haven't been to Marineland since our kids were younger, that was quite awhile ago. Of course it had to be three H ( hot, hazy and humid) weather. It may have been hot, but we had a great time. We left at 8 am and didn't get home til 8:30 that night. Our granddaughter wanted to see the dolphins, that's all we heard about during the hour and 45 minutes it took to drive there. 
The dolphins were wonderful to watch, we had third row center seats allowing us to see the dolphins up close.

The dolphins are part of the King Waldorf Show, which also included the seals and Beluga whales.

We also saw the deer and bears and bison and fish. The grandkids fed the bears and the deer.

Of course no amusement park is complete without rides. These were just a few of the rides they went on. Unfortunately I wasn't able to do the rides, but that was fine as I did enjoy watching my 2 year old grandson, while they were doing the rides. His dad tried to take him on one of the rides, but he wanted nothing to do with any of it.

Our oldest grandson and his sister did as many of the rides as they could. Some more than once.

All in all a wonderful way to spend a Sunday. I hope your Sunday was as good as mine. 

Have you been to an amusement park this summer?

Sounds like the perfect day with family and so much fun Cindy! My parents used to take our children there. Lots of walking, eh?

Oh I always loved rides! Not so my husband, waaah, but when we went to Cedar Point in Ohio on our honeymoon, he got dragged onto that incredible wooden roller coaster because his best man made him, ha. Neither of my girls likes rides either, much to my dismay. Great photos! Dolphins-love, on my bucket list to swim with them one day. A 3-H day, love it, and can totally relate!

Lots of fun to have a three generation day out. I'd definitely be the one minding the little ones and the bags while others went on the rides - I hate being scared!
