The kids each earned a free pass to the local water park. The catch is that they are only free passes through June 30th. After that, they become buy one, get one and they're not good on Saturdays. So...we used them today. Hottest day of the year so far and a GREAT excuse to take the day off work!
We got to the park about 10:20 (they open at 11:00) and immediately went to one of the newer rides. I am not ashamed to say that I screamed like a girl the whole way down!! It was scary!!! But, I would do it again. Went to the ride right next to it and didn't scream at all.
After that, I sat and read while the kids played. We took our lunch and at about 1:00, went to the truck to eat. Sandwiches, grapes, carrots, strawberries. Yummy! After we went back in, we hit the wave pool and the endless river and then I read some more. I finished one book, started another. The kids hit a couple more rides without me and we finally left a little after 5:00. Kids are going to be early tonight! And I hope to follow them shortly after.
AND...no one got sunburned! We reapplied sunscreen multiple times and drank lots of water to avoid dehydration. Overall, I'd say it was a very good day. Now I have to go to work tomorrow. Probably a good thing. I need the rest! LOL!!
