Fun Day!

Well, we had such a good time yesterday! I am so tired and will be going back to bed soon to rest up some more. My balance still hasn't....well, balanced out yet and my legs are a bit tender from the walking. But, wow, did we have fun!

It did rain off and on while we were there, obviously we wouldn't be sporting the ponchos just for kicks. (On second thought you never know what will happen when a group of girls get together.)

We did ride just about everything there. We wouldn't try the bungee-type rides that you pay extra for, or the one where it just drops you out of the sky from waaaaaaaaaaaaayyyy up, but we did The Phantom's Revenge. This is their only steel coaster I believe. So much fun! The first time we rode it had just started raining again and I couldn't keep my eyes open because the raindrops were hitting my face so hard, I was afraid one of them would knock out one of my contacts. So a couple of us had to try that one out later without rain. And one of us almost lost our cell phone on the ride. While we were riding the phone went up in the air and the girl behind us saw something and grabbed it! It was the phone!! How often does THAT happen?! That was cool!

All the classic rides were still there. The Jack Rabbit, Thunderbolt, The Whip, The Racer, The Turtle, and Noah's Ark. We also went on ones I don't remember like the Kangaroo, The Pittsburg Plunge, and The Exterminator. I think we will be taking our kids sometime after LB is done with the phase of being afraid of the amusement parks. Gotta keep these family memories going. Hubby remembers Noah's Ark from when he was a boy. Cute!

Oh and all those pictures I promised? Yeah, you can't take pictures on the rides and well, I was on all of the rides. :) But we did get this one nice picture of all of us in our poncho glory! That will just have to do.

Thanks, girls for the great day!

And now, back to bed...

Girl's Day Out!

Tomorrow is our fun day! I think we are all excited about it. As some of you know, I have been battling an ear infection this week, but I am still going to go. Who knows how my ears will be after all these rides. Maybe it will shake things up in there so I can hear again! I hope. I never really realized what the kids had gone through when they had ear infections when they were younger. The last time I experienced one was when I was very young also, so I didn't remember the "loss of hearing" thing that you have to put up with. It kinda sounds like I'm talking in a box. It's really annoying! But, I think I will be preoccupied by lots of fun tomorrow. I hope to have some pictures to post also!

Trip to the mall

We wanted to go out to do something today. We tried going to the "local flea market" today but found that the traffic was just too much. They only operate on Fridays so everyone and their brothers go out for all the cheap junk you can buy, and also some fresh fruits and veggies. Well, we crept in the traffic for about 30 minutes and decided that it wasn't worth it today. So we turned around and decided to go to the mall. Probably finding the same stuff but more expensive. Positive note-no headaches. So we are walking around and found the Shiatsu chairs. LB started. He asked for "tickle back?". Couldn't resist. BB sat down beside him. I think we got our $2 worth.

In my garden

As promised, the photos of my garden so far.

My Dad getting my ground ready

Green beans


Peas a week later

Green beans a week later

I just put in tomatoes and green peppers in the middle. I did plant cucumbers and carrots but haven't seen any yet. I think it's because of those darn critters.

Hopefully we will get a good bit of veggies this year.
