Fun, fun, fun in the hot, hot sun!

I thought the day would be not so hot and even a bit drizzly. The sky was overcast and intermittent showers were on the forecast. So, I packed up my kids and took off to the amusement park. Our friends were going with us, so it was bound to be a fantastically fun day! We arrived at around 3pm. There were still clouds in the sky but not a drop fell. The parking lot was full. Very full. Oh, shoot! I was hoping that the forecast of rain would drive people away! Not a chance! I think everyone had the same idea. The lines were gonna be long.
Soon after we got in, the clouds disappeared and the sun beat upon us like a bat on a ball. But we still had fun! I only wanted to barf a couple of times. Not too bad! It’s not the roller coasters that I have a problem with, it’s the ones that go around, and around, and around, and around. I wasn’t like this before I had kids. In fact one of my favorite rides used to be the “Music Express”, where you and your friends (or boyfriend), share a seat and you go around and around so fast that you smush up against the person. This was done to very loud pop music and if you’re lucky you get dizzy and can’t walk straight afterwards.
Despite the long lines, the kids got to go on almost every ride they wanted to.
John and James having a good time on one of the "around and around" rides.

Our friends and all the kids. Having fun guys?

Hope you don't get too wet!

Of course, everyone got soaking wet! (Haha! Not me!) Most of them from head to toe. Except Kari, she had some "interesting" dry spots! (Should've got a picture!)

James and Brandon,
behind bars!

Hm, sometimes I wish. . .

"Me and my shadow".
Look at us! Aren't we just cute??? Where am I looking, do you ask? I'm looking at my oldest son who is just about to run in front of the camera. Again! He says it's just because he doesn't want the camera to be broken when dad takes the pictures of us. (Oh! He is so mean to his mommy!)

The Three Musketeers!

What a fun day. You never know about our weather. We went to the water park last week and it started of yucky...might have been the same day. It is fun to know what you are up to since we never see each other and only live 20 minutes away from each other. We need to plan a cousin barbque soon since you guys missed Memorial day this year.

Hello from Oz, at the beach freezing my butt off! And you're talking about being hot! Winter isn't my favorite season, even in Oz! Yeah, I only feel like throwing up after the Tilt-O-Whirl two times! See you in a couple of weeks!
