Summer trip 2011-- Knoebels (part VIII)

time for some more ride pictures!  We are still on Saturday, Day 3 of our vacation.  We went to Knoebel's Amusement Park. 


 Warren and Alex getting ready to go on the Merry Mix Up.  I know Warren doesn't look to happy in this picture.  I have another picture of him on here where he & Alex are laughing. However, it is really blurry.  Next time.


 This is Kylie and Alyona having a blast as usual.  Alyona's a lightweight so just flies across the seat.  Fun, isn't it?


A closer view of these two.  We're all getting ready to ride the train through the forest.  Scream through the tunnels and all.  So much fun.  


 Some of my kids are on this Skoolsh ride.  A flume ride. 


 Yana and Alyona are in the back.  Irina and Nik are in front of them.  Then Bojan, Alex & Max are even further in front of them.  You can click on the pictures to get a better look.  They were absolutely soaked from head to toe.  They were supposed to wait for dad on this ride but were too excited and went on ahead.  They loved this ride. 


Unfortunately, I caught these two toward the end of this ride.  Nik & I were in the car in front of them.  Sometimes you realize things as a parent w/ a child w/ special needs.  It hits you.  See, Alyona has ONH(optic nerve hypoplasia), strabismus and horrible eyesight as well.  Only one "good" eye and that one is horrible as well.  We once again realized on this ride just how much Alyona can't see.  She hides it well everyday but this was one of those times that it just "hit us."  She will never drive.  That's a fact.  We've already been told this by a few opthalmologists.  Believe it or not, she did have fun most the ride.  Trust me, this issue does not slow here down one bit! 


 Ironically, one of the kids Nik rode w/ on this ride had eye issues as well & kept hitting the wall.  She was fine.  Her mom & I were talking a bit.  Anyhow, Nik was elated to get to go on this ride.  He was the only one that could.  Alyona and Alex were too big believe it or not. 


Nik thought that he was hot stuff on this.  LOL.  He did awesome!  More to come. .Lightening all around me.  Shutting this thing down now.  Much more later and some new news to share!
