Anyways the night started off with Cocktails at the Amber Waves Bar at the Knott's hotel where everyone was staying. After the bar we went to the room and had a couple more cocktails then it was off into the park. It was pretty dead that night which was GREAT for us because we got to walk on rides and mazes. We went through the slaughterhouse maze first then a couple rides then we went to the beer garden to have another drink and ended up dancing to 70's disco..funny stuff!!.
It was off for more mazes,rides,drinks,laughs and good times til 2am! After we left the park in our drunken stuper we went to Mrs. Knott's Chicken house for the Haunt midnight to 3am breakfast Buffet. The food was so bad..it was funny cause BOB everytime the waitress would come by he would always tell her Give my compliments to the chef this food is wonderful haahaha. After breakfast it was to the hotel room to hit the sack. I was so exhausted I must have fell asleep instantly. Anyway we didn't get to hit all the mazes so Gabe and I were thinking about even going back in mid October..I think that is a good possibility.
Here is The GANG that went..this was in Ghost town.
Here is us dancing to the 70's music like a bunch of crazy chicks..the strobe lights gave it this weird fogging effect.The Birthday boy Josh and his very lovely wife Vickie

We been talking about going for a long time now and finally we did it.
We started off at Calloway doing some wine tasting. Gabe and I bought a awesome Late Harvest Cab that was to die for.
It was surprisingly not to hot like I thought it would be..it was actually quite comfortable.
I can't wait to go back sometime and check out some new places!!
Anyways I was jogging in place the other day and notice that Ava was copying me and laughing. I thought it was the cutest thing. I then would jog back and fourth from my living room to Parkers room to my room and she would just follow me acting like she was jogging too..anyways I jogged right to the camera and took some action shots of her...
I was pretty concerned about taking Ava but she loved watching the cars race by. I will however next time bring some ear muffs for her..I didn't realize how loud NASCAR's are.
Inside they have a ton of food places and stuff to see. Parker brought a couple hot wheels with him and so conveniently too cause there was this little trailer thing parked inside that was the hot wheel test track. Basically kids can race their hot wheels My brother caught the cars for Parker as he raced them.
After the races a ton of kids we here racing their cars....good thing Parker had it to himself a bit before the show
I have not been up to much but I have been hanging out a lot with my neighbors and usually we all just watch movies, or listen to music and sip on wine or beer or play video games. I been spending too much of my time playing all these damn games on facebook. I am so addicted that I have put my blog on the back burner..time to get back to blogging!!
Pretty much every Friday night I have been heading over to Sean's place with the rest of the troop and we been playing Beatles Rockband. Sean bought it the very first day it was released and it's been non stop playing since then. We completed the whole game now already.
anyway here are some shots of us playing it the first day of the release..what a blast it is..
The graphics are so amazing!!

Friday was much better. She was feeling better and the time had finally come for the 3 days Labor day weekend! We did a HOdge Podge of things for labor day.
Friday..I have no pictures but I ended up hanging out a Sean's place playing Rockband all night. Ally and toni came over too. It was pretty fun...we are practicing for the Beatles Rockband that he is going to get at the end of this week.
Saturday was a wash. We wwre on our way to a birthday party for Chloe and I had to stop off at the store really quick and my car died in the parking lot. The battery was complelety dead. So Toni came and picked up the kids and myself while Gabe waited for my dad to come and get a new battery installed in my car. By this time we totally missed the party andjust went home. I had Gabe go and buy me Guitar Hero World tour which is like Rockband but for Playstation 2 and later that night we invited friends over and had some chips and dips and beers and had a Guitar Hero party. We all took turns singing,playing drums and Guitar. I really need to get a bass though for the game. It was soooo much fun!!..I didn't get pictures either Sat night..which is a bummer cause I am sure I could have gotten some pretty funny ones in.
Sunday we took the kids to Wild Rivers. It was the perfect day for a water Park. First we went to the Lazy river and hung out then let Ava and Parker play in the little kiddie water park area. We then went to our little grassy part of the park to have our picnic. That's when I decided to get my camera out.
Parker and Ava before we went in the water.
Picnic time. Ava was eating a peanut butter and Jelyl sandwhich and we had some carrots,nectorines,animals crakers, chips and soda.
After that we went home to BBQ. It was pretty fun and I can't believe I didn't take pictures!!
Ally came over and brought beer and Sausages. My mom made some sides and I made chicken kabobs. We had tons of beer and wine and later Toni and My brother and his gf and my dad came over as well to Join my mom and me and the rest. We then got into playing some more Guitar Hero World tour...we named our band LIPSTICK KILL..Good times..all in all it was a pretty nice weekend..but much to fast!

We all met up in the Party waiting area then were whisked away to one of the private party rooms. While we were being escorted to our room there was tons of different themed rooms where you can have your party. Ava was wide eyed at the brightly colored party room full of balloons.
The kids got to play games. Parker won the game of musical chairs.
It was a fun time...we will have to go back soon!
