Loving Lagoon

Guess what we have been doing today?  In case you don't recognize this, these lovely ladies are riding the Rattlesnake Rapids ride at Lagoon.  And you may also have noticed that a couple of these girls are our cousins and one is Aunt Kim.  Sorry the resolution on the photo is not the best.  I don't know why.  It looked fine when I took it, but somehow it lost its clarity when I transfered it onto my iPad.

It has been a perfect day at Lagoon today.  Apparently, the weather has been kind of lousy this week, but today the weather was ideal.  It was warm in the morning (okay, hot) and then it got a little overcast in the evening just enough to make it really pleasant.  We have had a ball.  All of us have enjoyed several different rides.  The lines have been very short.  As a matter of fact, there was no line to speak of on Rattlesnake Rapids, and the line for Wicked was so short that the boys rode it 10 times in 30 minutes earlier today.

My boys and their cousins are still in the park.  We are camping in the campground here, so after a quick dinner, they headed back over.  The girls and I also spent a lot of time at Lagoon--A Beach today, too.  We loved drifting on the lazy river in our tubes, and riding down a couple water slides, too.  It has been so fun.  And so nice to have our campsite right here close by.

We are here with Grandpa Joe and Grandma Carol in their camp trailer.  We also have two tents set up for the kids.  Britt's sisters Jennilyn and Shondell are here with their kids, and Kimberlee joined us today also.  We have loved spending this time with family.  The best part is right now when the girls are having a sleepover party with their cousins in the tents and the rest of us are sitting here visiting (besides, the teenage boys who are picking up girls inside the park, and riding the funnest rides).

Anyway, tomorrow is Cole's birthday.  After that, we celebrate me, and a day later, Tyler.  Jennilyn's birthday was a few days ago, and her son Carson's the next day.  It's party time around here.  We are loving it.  (Except, don't tell Cole, but I still don't know what I am getting him for his birthday)

We were at Lagoon on Wednesday and we had the same experience with the lines. Rattlesnake Rapids has never not had a line and we took advantage of that going on it about 5 times in a row (I only went once, it was a little too much twisting and jostling for my tummy's liking). Too bad we just missed you!
