Dallas Trip - Six Flags

This is the last post from our Dallas mini-vacation. There are 3 posts below highlighting other activities. My friend from high school, Jen, who works fro Six Flags, graciously offered to give us tickets so we could enjoy the park while in town. We decided to go only for the late afternoon/evening since it was 100 degrees out. Make sure you check out the 3 part video at the end.
I do have to note... we 5 adults there to help us with the kids and right off the bat they all took off with Madison leaving Jason and me with the the other 6! Nice, right? Jenni was so awesome to stick around and help us out. I don't know how we would have managed it without here. She sat with our stuff while we rode rides with the kids, went on the rides with kids that needed a partner, got us drinks, and just helped in any way she could - what a blessing! She just popped in to say hi and spent the rest of the night there at the park with us.

Madi and Ally rode with Papa on the boat (rocket) that goes upside down - first ride of the day. Go girls! I was so proud.
Pip wanted to ride EVERYTHING. She cried every time we took her off a ride. She is precious.
The kids were really looking forward to the bumper cars...

Can't place this picture at the bottom for some reason - this was the crew that rode the old wooden roller coaster 3 times in a row at the end of the night...
Jen rode with Wilson on the roller coaster - what a pal - thanks Jen, you rock!
Daddy and his Pip watching the other kids on the Ferris wheel...
Is he just the cutest thing you've ever seen on a roller coaster?

Pip LOVED the swings although I was so scared she was going to climb out while she waited for the rife to start.
Pip was so glad to have ice water.
Absolutely hate this picture of me but how could I not post the one of me and Jen?!

Ready for the light parade...


  1. looks like so much fun, glad you posted the pic, it's good :)

  2. How fun! I'm glad your family was able to do that together. And how nice of Jenni to do that for y'all! We went to an amusement park on Sunday and I'm still tired from it!

  3. I love the video's- he was so excited with his hands up and totally changed his mind when it started :)
    Piper looks like such a big girl sitting in the swing!
    Glad you guys had a great time :)

  4. I just keep laughing when I think of Piper trying to crawl out of that swing. That old dude kept huffing back and so sweetly helping her back into the seat.

    Also---that old coaster? Judge Roy Scream. That's the name. (I forget what you kept calling it but that made me laugh too).

    I had a blast! Thanks so much for your friendship and for letting me spend the day with you & you fam. Had such a great time.

  5. I meant you and your fam. Uggh. Bad proofing on my part. :(

  6. Love the video. How funny....Love his face as it gets faster.

  7. Poor Ty! I don't think he really meant this was the worst day ever. Just a little bit of the over dramatic Leahy blood in him.

  8. Ahh! Looks like you all had a great time and it was fun looking at all your pictures. Your family hasn't changed a bit. It was good seeing pics of your parents and Jack too! It's so fun seeing the fun of an amusement park through kids eyes.

  9. wow looks like so much fun wish we could have gone with you guys!

  10. Love the videos of Ty! Hope the others enjoyed the roller coasters more :)

  11. Yay! Lucky that you got to see Jen! That's the reason I love Dallas! The kids look like they had a great time, of course!
