We do parks in the rain!

 So it was our day to visit 6 Flags in Vallejo. Which, when I was a kid was called, "Marine World, Africa, USA" now it is called Discovery Kingdom.  Our charter school bought tickets for us to go on this specific day so even though it was raining we headed to the park. We don't wish rain away here in California. We get out and enjoy it!

The park has lots of animals as well as rides.
 Here is a huge walrus. Hard to see through the plexiglass.
 Riding the kiddie swings is a good start to the rides.

 Then we rode the Monsoon and the wetness get started.  Sophie snapped the picture of us taking the plunge. Molly was holding on tight to me as we went down the fall.

 We saw the tiger show and visited the white tiger, Odin.
 No pictures of the rapids ride but we went on it twice because we love it so much but Ian and I were soaked by the waterfall both times we headed down the rapids.   We spent the rest of the day soggy because there wasn't much sun to heat us dry.
 Molly rode the elephant flying ride but then got to ride a real one.

 The kids all thought this was the highlight of this visit. An Elephant ride is not something you get to do everyday.

 We saw snakes.

 Oh yeah we rode a rollar coaster, dragged Sophie and Molly on it too but then nobody, even Henry, didn't want to ride the ones that loop or go upside down.  But Ian thought the Sky Screamer was a lot of fun!

 This ride was a good air dryer. I started to feel less soggy after whipping around on this ride.



 We rode the train
 flew some helicopters
 And had a great time!

Despite the rain we saw and rode a whole lot. I didn't even take pictures of the dolphin shows we saw.  I guess because we came last year as well and saw many of the same shows I didn't even think to snap shots of them. I just kept thinking out fun it would be to swim with the dolphins like those trainers do.  Maybe some year we will all go swim with the dolphins.
