For the past 5 years we have taken the girls to Knott's Berry Farm. It began when the amusement park offered public safety officers a reduced admittance fee during the month of December, (very cool of them!). That prompted us to go and we have gone every year since. This year, we planned a day and boom - a road block. First, the broken leg. Then, the weather (it rained for 5 days straight here in CA) and last, work.
I have a hard time "giving up" when I really want to do something. I did not want to miss our annual trip. Despite 60% chance of rain (it has been raining constantly!) and finding out the reduced rate ended December 19th, Diondray and I decided to go. (I actually decided to go, but he is always willing to support me:)
We planned to get on the road at 9, however it was 11 when we pulled out of the drive way. I was starting to feel like maybe it wasn't such a good idea to insist we take a 2 1/2 hour drive, because I wanted to believe there was a 40% chance of sunshine.
Well, those aren't bad betting odds!
We went and it was so worth it!
PS- It did pour everywhere else!
As you can see by the parking lot, we closed down the park!
