One of the places we kept hearing that we needed to visit was Happy Hallow in San Jose. This is pretty much an amusement park made just for preschoolers. It has the kiddie rides, a small zoo and a large play area. The even greater thing is that we get in free with our NC Zoo pass!
Here is a roller coaster that both kids rode and LOVED.
Johnny was too short for the ride but we had just happened to have picked his hair out that day and the people in charge of the ride weren't really sure what to do with it. He was just tall enough with his afro to be let in...
We had a very fun day (we have already been back) and I think we will make many more trips to Happy Hallow this year.
