After our disastrous cousins trip last year to Disneyland, I wasn’t so sure Knott’s this year would be any better. But I kept telling myself a whole year has passed! It simply has to be better. Stevie is older and talking a lot more, so maybe that would cut down on the dramatic scenes – for instance, him laying face down right in the middle of Tomorrowland, with about 4 million people trying to walk around him. There’s no way he would do that to us again. Right??
So we took a shot.
And while it wasn’t exactly 100, it was soooo much improved, which is about the best we could hope for at this point. He only had a couple… moments, we will call them. And Paul and I decided ahead of time that whatever Stevie decided to do, we were kind of OK with. The tickets were so stinkin’ cheap, it took a lot of the pressure off to have a “perfect” day. If he hated it? Oh well!
Of course I’m glad he didn’t hate it. He didn’t want to do many rides, which I guess didn’t really surprise me after Universal Studios traumatized him. So he found his own ways to entertain himself and was so exhausted by the end of the day, he slept the whole way home and into the night. Yes!
…And this video is proof that if you cut out the crying and whining + put some catchy music on top – anything can look amazing! Haha!
No, really, it was fun.
