Lagoon!!

Thanks to our oh so loving and incredibly sweet and amazing "Grandma Greenie" (named by Alyssa.) We were able to go to Lagoon and have an incredible day. Chad's mom planned a day for Chad and his two brothers and our families to get together and spend the day at Lagoon. Chad and I haven't been in 6 years, so we were pretty excited!  We had 7 adults, 4 kids, and 2 babies.  We had 0 meltdowns, 1/2 pee pants accident (she finished the rest in the potty), 4 adrenaline rushed adults (we rode the sky coaster, that huge swing that drops you 150 feet, and you are only strapped in by a vest and a cable. okay it's stronger than that but not by much.) 4 very happy kids, 2 very happy babies, and 6 very happy adults, as for the 7th? (How are you holding up Luan?) She was so nice and offered to watch the kids, while us "big kids" went on rides that they couldn't go on. I, who watch children all day, know what she was dealing with, except she was dealing with it X 10, because we were in a public amusement park!! You are amazing Luan!! I would have been the one having the meltdown at the end of the first hour...Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!  Here are some highlights from our day!!!

This is Chad and I on the Sky Coaster. It had been 12 years since either of us went on it. I was sure we were going to die, so I made sure to tell the lady harnessing us in to make sure she did it tight, and once she thought it was tight to do it even tighter, because I have two kids watching, she chuckled, then I said No, I'm not kidding! I may have scared her...



This is Casey and D, Chad only got a little bit of it. I was in charge of recording but had to run Alyssa to the bathroom. Sorry Casey and D, Chad said Nick got the whole video though. I loved how D was screaming the whole time. I was paralyzed with fear to make anything more that grunting sounds:)

Ahhh, Lagoon. IMHO, so much better than Disneyland, Six Flags, etc. Love Rattlesnake Rapids!!! When Chad was a youngun, it was 4-5adults and 14 kids (seems Trevor was always getting lost). I miss those days. -- Viki
