Remlinger Farms

Thanks to a buy one get one Groupon for Remlinger Farms in Carnation, we decided to go check it out while Rory's admission is still free (under 1).
Rory did awesome! He went on a few rides and was smiling and laughing the whole time. Great prep for Disneyland (only 2 more months, woot!).
The Flying Pumpkins (I'm comparing it to Dumbo).

Spinning Barrel Ride (aka Mad Tea Party).

I actually found out after we got home that there was apparently a height requirement for each of these that Rory didn't reach (oops) but no one acted like it was a big deal, oh well...
There were quite a few more rides and it looks like they are going to be adding a few soon. they also had some pretty awesome playground equipment and a petting zoo. I think we will wait to return until Rory is older and can actually run around before we go back. Rory got tired pretty quickly after we walked around and checked everything out. So we headed out pretty eary, but saw some cool items in the shop/market on the way out.

Ninja of Love

So as I'm sure has been mentioned multiple times. I absolutely LOVE Phineas and Ferb. After a Jungle Cruise Skipper, being a writer for Phineas and Ferb is definitely #2 on my 'what I want to be when I grow up' list.

I recently bought Rorasaurus a Phineas shirt to wear to Disneyland in September. We are going to be stylin' at the Rockin' Dance Party, too bad he wont be able to dance... or walk....

This clip is one of the best moments of the show. There is a semi-washed-up 80s rock band called Love Handle, and this is one of their hit songs.

Since Rory decided to take a 3 hour nap today, I got to work on creating a new print for our bedroom. Now I just have to find the guts to send it off to Costco, not really sure what the printer technician is going to think of my selection....

Burger Joint

We decided to check out a burger joint on our way home today.

One of the signs inside (should have taken a picture!) said they specialize in grease, salt, sugar, and caffeine.
The building was red and white stripes, pretty much like a giant popcorn bucket.

I really enjoyed the burger. The fries tasted like Warren's, I was really excited until I realized there was no fry sauce to accompany them :(

Ror really enjoyed the fries and being able to sit on the picnic table.
It was pretty fun for a random evening out.

Splash Park

Wow! It has been so hot the last few days. We've been frequenting the swimming pool at our apartment, but it tends to get crowded. This weekend we decided to mix it up and go to a splash park I read about in an online article.

It was actually really difficult to find. The park has 2 sections, the upper and lower. To get from one to the other takes about a 15 minute hike via stairs (not quite stroller-friendly). The parking lot closest to the splash pad is down a street with foreboding signs like 'Dead End' we drove around for about 30 minutes before we actually figured it out.

It was about a 10 minute walk to the splash pad, there weren't any signs or maps and you couldn't see it from the parking lot. We just picked a random trail and got lucky that we ended up in the right spot.

I'm really not sure how Rory felt about it. He didn't love it, he didn't hate it.

He kind of just sat there and stared at the water.

At least we were able to cool down a bit. The ride over and back in the air-conditioned car may have been the best part. We might start going for a few more drives just to get out of our apartment.

Any tips for staying cool? We are melting over here!
