Bypass the long line for the River Ride (you'll just get wet, anyway) and head to the Pirate Shootout!Visit the Cow Barn, if just to marvel at the architecture (but the Brown Swiss are pretty wonderful too).
And visit the Llamas (we even got to see them decide on Best In Show!)
Do let your weapons obsessed 10 year old (and hubby) play the shooting game on the Midway:
Don't let him hold up the carnie when he doesn't win:
Enjoy the view from the top of the Ferris Wheel, and feel the nice breeze blowing over Falcon Heights:
But mostly, just appreciate being together as a family, (while your 10 year old still wants to hang out with you).
