Non-Stop Fun!

Priceless smile!

It was a fun weekend for all of us, especially the kids. We went to Leolandia (Minitalia) Park again (Capriate, Bergamo).  Actually it’s my 6th time here already. My son’s 4th time, my husband’s and daughter’s 3rd time, and my mom’s definitely nth time! I believe we can be associates now in Leolandia, hahaha!

Anyway, we wouldn’t be here if we weren’t given free entrance tickets. More than a month ago, my daughter & son had been part of the TV Commercial for this park, so we were compensated with lots of free tickets. I gave some to my friends. I can’t be here everyday. Free tickets are cool, but the fare going here, and foods are not. You know what i mean?

For those who are curious about the ticket prices and park information, just click the link and browse there: http://www.leolandia.it/it/

Tip: It’s always best to buy ahead the tickets. You can get them at lower prices!

My daughter, wishing her big brother good luck!

As expected, the kids can’t get enough of the rides. As far as i can recall, during my childhood days, i braved only the Caterpillar and Ferris Wheel. You will pay me $1000 so i will try some daring rides.

Yeah, OK. This is the only ride i went to. I’m scared of the heights and velocity, hahaha

Stripes Club =)

Leolandia Park is the former Minitalia. From the name itself, it means the park has its “Italy in Miniature” which is really awesome. All the famous landmarks/buildings all over Italy were there. This time, even we had a lot of time, the temperature is really so hot (that i had sunburn on my arms now), so strolling at the Minitalia area is not comfortable. In the past i got lots of photos taken there, so maybe i’ll blog about it next time. (Or you may check the related blogs below this post. They’re old though.)

Would my hub make that shot?

All of us in the family had a great time. My husband tried the “shoot that ball”, but it’s really quite impossible to make that goal. Even Batman i guess can’t do it. 3 euro for two balls to shoot! No harm in trying. My daughter is wishing for that giant SpongeBob, Minion, or Peppa Pig prize. To console her, my hub bought her favorite chips and ice drop. I wish adults could be “contented” easily, like the kids.

My Mom on the other hand keeps on having her selfie while sitting (and waiting) for us. Yes! My mom’s perfecting her “shoelfie!” Hahaha! Funny how the 40’s generation can adjust well to the techie world. I guess i will teach her how to hashtag. (chuckles)

All in all, this weekend get away will be on the list of our “happy memories”

Oh Yes, Zendra definitely is a scene stealer. Look at that pose! One trivia: She never leaves home without something on her hand. Bag or stuffed toy!

Until next time!
