The Extra Inch


The things we will do to be a "Reeses"! Kylee is about one inch shy of qualifying for the next height bracket at Hershey Park. She is currently a "kiss" and is dying to be a "Reeses" so she can go on some of the bigger rollercoasters....of coarse her Daddy decided to solve the problem! Sky went on the hunt for the tallest flip flops he could find. What do you think? Our 3 year old (almost 4) went on her first rollercoaster with a loop over the weekend with Skylar. As they entered the park Sky tried to start with some of her favorites but she was determined. "No Dad, I've got my new flipflops and I want to go on the big girl rides." We have never seen Kylee scared on a single ride and even at 2 she loved the big hill on the log flume. The little rides just haven't been cutting it lately. I know, pretty pathetic. She already talks about going on the "Claw" someday which spins you around while moving you upside down in a circle. I've told her that Mommy and Daddy don't even want to go on that ride. "That's ok Mom, I'll just go on it with Uncle Taylor and Aunt Laura. Well well, there's no stopping this girl.

That is awesome. What a little dare devil. And the flip flops are cute so that is a plus. :)

Brilliant! I doubt we'll need to pull that trick, but completely brilliant..... and completely fearless! Seriously. She's somethin'

That's awesome! I can't believe that. I am glad she knows Taylor and I are the fun aunt and uncle!

It sounds like Kylee is the girl that I should go to the theme parks with. I love roller coasters but often don' have anyone to go on them with! We can't wait to play together in August!

Do you think that same strategy would work with my boys? Probably not!
