OUR VISIT TO THE PINK PIG! 12/29/2010

Today was the day we decided to get with the program and finally ride the Pink Pig.
This is Pricilla or "cilla" as Brooke calls her! :)

Pricilla, Mommy and Lindsay.

Here is a shot of the train from the line as we waited.

What the original Pink pig looked like.

Mike on the Pink Pig for the first time in about 40 years!

According to Mike the Pink Pig was WAAY better, "back in the day". He said this is obviously from a 5 or 6 year old perspective of memory.

A view from on the train.

They take you around twice for $3.00 so that's not bad. However, they try to charge an arm and a leg for the photos they take of you with Pricilla!
The ride has old pictures of what the pig used to look like. Here is one of them.

Here is the original pig snout.
The Pink Pig only runs through January 2, 2011.


Another older picture of the ride.

Brooke being a sweetie and waving to the people in line.

Lindsay and Brooke all strapped in. We ended up riding around twice, because of course they were squeamish about the first ride, but then it was "we want to ride again!"


Brooke sporting her "I rode the Pink Pig 2010" sticker.

Lindsay now happily wants a photo with Pricilla!

Daddy and the girls on the last time around.


Mike says this is exactly how the old Pink Pig used to look.

One of the signs that described who should not ride, ie...heart conditions, pregnant people etc. had a funny at the bottom it said "You should not ride this ride if you have a fear of Happy Pigs, Pork or Pork Products. :) This one made us laugh.

Mike looking like he is at Disney World! LOL! J/K honey!

"I like Cilla", says Brooke.

I get a photo of the family with their souvenirs sitting on the billboard outside which shows pics of the way it used to be "back in the day"...
The girls wanted everything in the gift shop, most things were 50% off and the Christmas ornaments were 75% off which made them 3.00 bucks. So we went ahead and bought each girl an "I rode the Pink Pig 2010" button as a last resort. Mike promised me a sweet little piggy charm for my charm bracelet to commemorate my first ride on the Pink Pig instead of me spending any more money!
