We did have a funny stop on the road that first day. AJ told us he needed to use the bathroom. We found a truck stop using our in car navigation system and headed to it. When we got there we saw this...
Friday morning we were up and on the road early. If I'm being honest, we didn't get much sleep that night because our hotel wasn't that great. We took our chances on a Quality Inn south of Little Rock to save $75. It wasn't worth it. We should have stayed closer to downtown or the airport. But we survived and it did help us get up and out in the morning.
We were heading to Arlington on Friday and got there around lunch time. We stopped at our (first ever) Jack in the Box for lunch before checking into our amazing suite for the night. Thanks to my Dad & his Hilton points for that!! Adrian & I weren't really impressed with Jack in the Box, it was just OK. The boys loved the clowns all over the place.
After we checked in and got settled for the night we headed to our first stop, Six Flags over Texas. I think that is how we made such good time. We kept telling the boys that the quicker we drove the more rides we could ride. We were all ready to hit our first amusement park for the season! We had a rocky start because we chose to get in line for "Battle of Metropolis" which is a new ride there. It broke down several times while we waited and were in line for almost 2 hours. At least the ride was awesome & the boys LOVED it!
|Finally ready to ride!|
Saturday morning the 5 of us headed back to the park. We did the rest of the rides we wanted to ride, everyone picked one & then we did whatever smaller rides we could on the way. This included Daniel's first big roller coaster (he finally makes 48 inches). He and I rode "The New Texas Giant" and he said it was awesome! We probably would have rode again but the lines were just too long. He said the best part was the giant drop at the beginning.
