We Went, We Rode, We Got Worn Out!!
This past Friday 2 great families went to Six Flags over Texas. Those 2 families were The Newtons and The Smiths. This means that 6 very excited kids were at 6 Flags with 4 somewhat excited parents! It was a long day, but we took a break to eat around 3:00, and after we returned to the park at about 5:00 we realized that we shouldn't even have come before that. The lines were short, and it was so much cooler after 5:00. The big boys had fun riding the Judge Roy Scream and the Shockwave. Well, Carter didn't enjoy them so much, but he did say he wanted to ride them again! Jacob was the only one who got a 48" bracelet, and that caused several problems, especially with his older brother Cole who was VERY upset that he was not taller than Jacob. He looked at me and said, "Why did I not get the same bracelet as Jacob? I am as tall as he is. You told me I am." Wow! Moment of truth for Mom. I almost told them not to give Jacob the 48" bracelet, but then I decided that isn't really fair to him. He is a bit taller. The kids' favorite ride was the Roaring Rapids and it was hilarious how they would laugh and laugh when they got soaked. We rode it 3 times in a row and it was so much fun! We went back to Six Flags on Saturday afternoon and Jacob rode the Titan. That is the coaster in the back of the picture I posted. It goes underground and Jacob was so excited that he could ride it and Cole couldn't, but the first thing he said when he got off was, ,"Cole don't EVER ride that. It makes you dizzy." We laughed! But he is brave! Annalisa and Dawson both want to ride everything also, they aren't scared of anything! All in all it was a good trip and we had some very tired kids at 10:00 Friday night! (kids from L to R:Dawson (3), Cole(7), Blake (7), Jacob (6), Annalisa(3), Carter(4) )
