That's it, really. We've been to Gilroy Gardens a million times. No one wants to hear about it again. But Ree and Ro just looked so cute in their little red coats on a rainy visit to the park that I had to share the pictures. So there you have it. Ree showed us her new skill of winking before we left for the park: Ro couldn't wink, but she gave a funny smirky smile: In the car on the way to Gilroy Gardens, the girls always ponder "Do you think that weird thing will be there?" Yep, Mr Garlic was there (That's what we call him, no idea what his real name is). Ree left, Ro right: Good 'ole self timer. The camera was starting to get a little fogged up in the light rain. Ro left, Ree right: They have the neatest hot-air-balloon ride at GG. The only problem today was that the rain water hit the girls right in the eyes once that thing got really going. TubaDad had to shield their eyes in midflight. Ree knows I won't go on the spinning teacup ride for fear of "frowing up," so she said "It ok mama, you can go with me, I bring you a bucket." Bwah ha! When I flipped the video on and asked her what she just said, she wouldn't really repeat it. Oh well, at least I remember it: Little honeys had a blast with absolutely no lines. They kept looking around and saying "Dare no one here! We make it crowded!" Ree left, Ro right: Walking to the car (everyone was still awake and smiling, and a little bit soggy): A few seconds after the wheels started moving. This is how every good Gilroy Gardens trip ends. Ree left, Ro right: The rain was steady but very light the whole time we were there. It almost felt like we were walking under a pleasant misting machine. And there were absolutely no lines for rides—the girls got to go on every single ride in the park. It was crazy fun, and of course I got to see those cute little red coats darting around all day. Guess I should have come up with a creative title for this post like "Ode to Red Coats" or something like that. Heh. Next time.
