Lagoon

We went to Lagoon last weekend for the Stampin' Up! company party. It was crowded and hot, but we had a lot of fun. It was the first time I had been since I was in high school, and although a lot is the same (the old roller coaster is still my favorite ride, the log ride had the longest line, and we ended the day on Dracula's Castle) I still couldn't help but notice how much difference the Lagoon experience is for a mom vs a teenager....

  • I used to be able to ride the Scrambler over and over again, now I feel sick on all the rides that spin around.
  • I used to be able to be able to stick a few dollars in my back pocket - and that's all I had to carry. Now I have to carry a camera, cell phone, credit cards, sunscreen, water bottles, plus all of everyone else's stuff.
  • I also have to make sure that everyone is wearing sunscreen, well hydrated, and not hungry.
  • Maybe it was just me, but the lap bars and seat belts on all the rides sure seam a lot tighter than they used to. :)
It wasn't all bad though. It was so fun to see the smiles and feel the excitment of the kids.
And, as a teenager, one of the goals of going to Lagoon was to find all the cute guys. Now I have my own! (and, we totally made out in Dracula's Castle!)

Here are a few of my favorite photos of the day:

Oh my gosh the scrambler makes me so sick. Your oldest daughter looks so much like you. Glad you had a great time!

I don't believe you. No way did Jake make out in Dracula's Castle.

I am sure Jake is so embarrassed you told everyone you made out! I haven't been to lagoon for 10 years either. It looks like fun. Your girls look so happy.

I am surprised to hear how long it has been since you have been to Lagoon! I still like to go. I just avoid The Scrambler :)

i'm bummed i didn't get to go. :( i love lagoon! but yeah i'm with you--why do they keep making the seats smaller and smaller? :) haha i don't remember the name of the ride but my favorite the last time i went was the one where you hang upside down and then go straight through a wall of water. SUCH A BLAST!
