We were able to find a babysitter for Memorial Day to go to the amusement park. Luckily, our friend needed to work on the weekend so we had her come stay at our house and babysat for two days and she agreed to watch our little ones. They had a blast they went swimming all day.
In any event, it was me, my husband, my daughter, her friend and our neighbor. I managed to get on the one ride that scared me to death. It is a very steep hill up and a very steep hill back down and pretty much up and down and goes 80 mph. on the way up the hill, I was like what the heck did I do to myself and was so scared. But after that first initial hill, it was fun even though my seat seemed not so tight so I was out of my seat a lot. that was scary but fun. then my daughter and I wanted to ride it again. So, we did. This time on the way up the hill, I was able to tighten my seat and that made it so I didnt' feel like I was falling out of my seat and we even put our arms up this time. Surprisingly it wasn't very crowded. We rode all the rides we wanted to. And then went and ate lunch and then went to the water park. That was packed. It wasn't evem fun becuase there were so many people. i rode one ride and it was fun. Other than that, we stayed in the wave pool and then left. We stayed there 8 hours and I was exhausted after we got home.
And next month we are going to go just to the water park and stay there. We are going to bring our little ones, they have a nice little kiddie land area for them and my 4 year old can ride some of the little rides. But it will give dad and the oldest time to ride rides together and bond. I'm so glad we bought these passes. We get in the park an hour early and 1/2 hour early to the water park so it makes it so we can ride the big rides, go to kiddie land for a little while until we can get in the water park. That is our plan for next time.
OUr noodling trip is 6 days. We leave on Wed. Grandma is coming over tues evening and staying until Friday when we get back. Hubby and I were thinking of coming back early and going to the park just to have some time just us, but we think we might be to exhausted after being in the river all day wrestling with some big fish. The smallest picture I have seen of catfish these people are pulling out is 40lbs. that is the smallest. OMG. can I really pull out a big fish like that? I will try and hubby said he has my back. Whew, cannot wait to have 3 days without the kids just enjoying being a couple again.
