Adventures at Adventure Landing

Adventures at Adventure Landing

Kiddie Amusement Park, North Carolina, Summer Fun
North Carolina summers typically dictate that you spend as little time outside as humanly possible. Normally during the dreaded one month "Dog Days" period, the only time I willingly go outside between the hours of 12:00 p.m.- 7:00 p.m. is if I'm making a mad dash to the car.

This year however; the weather as been mildly bearable. I suppose this has something to do with the fact that we have been relentlessly battered by an unrelenting month long deluge of summer storms. Normally I enjoy the brief reprieve from the heat and use the rain as an excuse to curl up a bit longer in bed or catch up on some reading. This year has been an exception. After three straight weeks of rain, Jasmine has been bouncing of the walls. Figuratively and literally.

There's only so many episodes of Dora the Explorer and only so many times you can read Oh! The Places You'll Go! before you need a little outdoor playtime to unwind.

Luckily, a few weeks ago we managed to sneak in a few hours of fun outside at Adventure Landing before the clouds opened up with their daily "outpouring of love." It was our first time there. Jasmine immediately took to the carousel, so 30 minutes and 30 tokens later we finally had to drag her off the machine so that other kids could have a turn.












She immediately cheered up again once when we made our way outside to check out some of the kiddie rides. Apparently she takes after her Daddy and loves planes. Luckily, she also takes after me and enjoys sitting in them and not jumping out of them for fun.

Next up, we took a ride on the Choo-Choo Train where Jasmine was kind enough to give us her own impersonation of the Train whistle. What can I say, my kid's got skills ;)


After a few trips around the train tracks, we ambled around outside to check out the rest of the outdoor activities. Unfortunately, the other rides were geared more towards older kids, so we decided to call it a day.

I'm sure when I'm not around to hover, James will take her back and let her ride the big kid rides. And probably allow her to eat all the chocolate she can handle. Because apparently, that's what daddies are for.

  2. I didn't know you were in NC. I'm in NC too. The weather has been really pleasant for summer time. I'm glad you were able to get out and have a family day.

    1. You're so right! It has been unusually cool for this time of the year. No complaints here though. What part of NC are you in? We do a lot of blogger meet ups in Charlotte. Would love to have you here!

    1. It was a blast! And the weather has been so weird lately. I have a feeling we're going to have an unusual winter as well.

  4. We might have to visit now that it looks like the rain is finally giving us a break. This would be the perfect way to end summer break with Moo since she's starting school soon.
