Chino Hills Snow Day

Or really, it should have been called Chino Hills MUD Day.  I don’t know why but the entire park was a big squishy mud zone.  We arrived pretty early and as we were walking into the park, saw kids coming out COVERED from head to toe in mud.

Since we walked right by the sleds, the girls jumped in line first.  Brooklyn by herself and Kalea with Daniel.

The made it out unscathed by the mud so decided to go for a second round. 

Poor Daniel’s right side was covered in mud!  Even us bystanders couldn’t escape it.  Just from walking to one of the games, I stepped in a puddle of mud.

In the past there were a ton of games/crafts but this year it was pretty small.

The girls played a few games and then stood in line to get their face painted.

A penguin for Kalea and…a penguin for Brooklyn.  Not sure what is with her face…

Then it was off to the snow pens.

Immediately once inside, Kalea began to assault Daniel with snowballs.  I’m surprised the two of them did not get kicked out or yelled at.

And then Kalea grew tired and asked to be removed.  Brooklyn stayed in a bit longer to play in the snow.

After the snow pens, Kalea convinced us to stand in line for the balloon girl.  While we waited Brooklyn went down the sled ramp at least another 10 more times (there was NO line by now).  After Brooklyn got her crown and Kalea got her butterfly, we called it a day and headed home.

I’m not sure why, but it was definitely a lot smaller than the past years.  I actually think Diamond Bar’s was better overall.  The sled lines were much longer, but there were more food vendors and games for the girls to play with.  We’ll see which one we attend next year.
