We went to Knott’s today and the kids had a blast.
One of their favorite rides is Sierra Sidewinder. It’s a fast rollercoaster that is part of Camp Snoopy and allows kids under 48″ to ride!
Unfortunately, all the other fast rides do have a height requirement and Peanut is not quite there yet.
It was a pretty hot day too so we went on the log ride. It was the kids’ first time and they enjoyed it with the exception for the creepy fake people inside.
Here’s the photo they took of us going down the last fall.
What a fun day!
Now that summer is in full swing, we’ve gotten into a routine. The kids do workbooks in the morning and then get to play the rest of the day.
We also added swim lessons for Peanut at Waterworks in Huntington Beach. It’s a 20-min lesson with just one other kid and he gets to hang on his teacher’s back while the other child is swimming.
This afternoon, we walked to the playground in the community.
We had an impromptu belt test for Peanut today. He went to his last class and Sifu knew we were moving so he tested him early (and didn’t charge the usual fee!)
All I wanted was for him to test and pass without the green belt given to him but Sifu Sam insisted on the full test and ceremony. We will miss this place and all the sifus there.
We also recreated a photo that we took 3 years ago when they first started.
Look how cute they were back in 2018!
After 3 years, this girl will check in for the last time at Aquatech. She has not only overcome her fear of the water but learned all 4 strokes with confidence and excellent form. It’s good to know that all the time and money that we’ve spent here paid off.
They always replay the 2012 Olympics at Aquatech and this is the first time KK was really into watching the races.
We celebrated Toni and Thomas’ birthdays today at the pool and at their house. It’s so fun to be with the cousins again!
They look like sea otters in the water.
It’s a back-to-back morning with KF and swim so we stopped at Jane Sweeney Park between the two classes.
This park is huge and has lots of fun things to explore.
The best part was the zipline.
KK is working on her flip turn today.
