New Toy at Old Playground

We returned to Knobels Sunday. Great time. Love it. Used $99 worth of tickets on rides, though we only paid $91 for the tickets . . . I really can't stop thinking economically with that park. But I spend enough time on that last year.

Sam enjoyed the coasters, though he did make himself nauseous by the end of the day. So nauseous he couldn't eat at Hoss's. That will probably be the final time I ever get Sherry to eat at one. By the way . . . enormous phase shift at Hoss's. Now one orders from a menu at the table. Stunned, I am.

Let's get back to Knobel's. Sam and I think that Twister beats Phoneix by a hair. Both are long coaster rides (each is longer than two minutes). Flying Turns probably isn't worth another $3 from me, but that's okay. I did get to ride my first roller coaster with Caroline, who lost a tooth on her second Phoenix ride. Sherry, of course, enjoyed the Haunted Mansion which she claims hasn't changed in four decades.

I brought my new toy along: a new camera. I probably spent a bit too much on it and the awesome lens for it, but I resolved that my Normandy trip would be a once-in-a-lifetime chance to see some amazing places, and I want to record it faithfully. I practiced picture-taking a lot at Knobel's, on random things as well as my kids. Here are some of the better shots.

After our first trip.

There's the baby tooth that trip #2 on Phonenix removed. 



Okay, that's creepy. It's an attempt at playing with aperture and filter. 
The kids are finished school but I'm not, quite yet at least. This trip to Knobel's is one that I hope can be an annual tradition for a little while.
