I gave the girls a choice of what they wanted to do for their second day. I had several options picked out, fabulous options. Trips to San Diego Zoo or Safari Park and shopping. But no Adam decided to stomp all over my well thought out plans and suggest Knott's Berry Farms. And of course they jumped on Knott's Berry Farms. But I didn't really mind because I wanted them to do what they wanted for vacation.

Knott's Berry Farm is one of the oldest theme parks in America and it has lots of themed areas like the ghost town, the fiesta village, and the boardwalk. The girls and Adam rode many of the roller coasters but I'm kind of a wimp, so I just rode safe rides like the Mexican Hat Dance (like the teacups at Disneyland except you are in a sombrero) and a Carousel. Nothing can happen to you on a carousel right? Unless your horse stops at the highest possible height and you nearly fall off jumping from it. True Story.

For lunch, we ate at Johnny Rocket's. When we walked into the restaurant, the staff was doing a dance to "Working at the Car Wash." And while they were giving it their all, I couldn't help but feel just a tiny bit sorry for them. At Johnny Rocket's, we filled up on shakes, burgers, and cheese fries before riding a few more rides and leaving the park. But not before walking through Camp Snoopy and meeting none other than Schroeder from the Peanuts. He was always one of my favorite peanuts.

After leaving Knott's Berry Farms, we went to Dave & Busters to play some games. And we played a ton of games! Trivia Games, Deal or No Deal, Basketball games, Racing Games, and Football games. We all earned a ton of tickets. Kayla also had won a stuff banana in one of those crane games. We spent the rest of the trip torturing Mr. Banana when Kayla would be in the backyard talking to her boyfriend. We would tie his neck with some thread and dangle him out the window as if we had hung him just to get a rise out of her. And then we would repeat the process, but this time Uncle Adam would hold a pizza slicer up to him as a threat. It was incredibly silly but so hilarious. No one could stop laughing.
