Vacay Day 6

Wednesday, July 29, 2009

Wednesday dawned bright and clear, and it seemed like a good idea to grab a couple of extra kids, and head to Lagoon. We picked up Madison and Kinney, and headed with the in-laws to Farmington. It was Mimi's work Lagoon Day, so we got the kids in for free. Then, leave it up to the FIL, as we were getting there to buy tickets, he spots someone selling them with the Stake Lagoon Day price. Only in Utah. So we got in for a pretty big discount. Nice.

This next paragraph will probably bring the wrath of Karma upon me, but I have good reasoning behind it, I promise.

You see, not only did we get into Lagoon for cheap, we also scored a very.front.row parking spot. Like as in, front row next to the ticket booth. Like as in the Handicap parking. (shaking head in shame), I know, I know. But do you want to hear my reasoning? You see, when my mom was so sick, the doctor gave us a Handicap placard to use in her car. They only gave her 3 months to live, but the placard doesn't expire for 2 years! Ironic, I know. Anyhoo, I figure there are very few advantages to having your mom die of cancer. Hell if I'm letting one tiny little thing that I can benefit from, and give the cancer the finger in the process, slip by me. Dont' worry, there were a bazillion Handicap spots, so I didn't take on from someone who needed it, I do have my standards. But we did use it at Wal-Mart, which was totally awesome, because finding a spot at Wal-Mart is like finding a needle in a haystack. We may have also used it at P.F. Changs. And Sam's Club. And the mall. But that's it, I promise!

Okay, stop passing judgement, and just look at my cute pictures now. Even though you think less of me. If that's possible. ;)

Mimi, Josh, and Maggie going on Ladybug Bop. It's like Bouncin' With Wags for you Six Flaggers out there. Mimi screamed like she was on Colossus, though, and it was funny. And yes, my kid has no pants on. Just swimsuit bottoms. She sort of dropped her shorts in the toilet while she was changing. Don't worry, the water was clean.

Gretta on the boats. Not sure who the other girl is, but Gretta didn't seem to mind sharing.

And Gretta on the whales. Shortly after this photo was taken and the ride began going, she broke out into complete hysteria, and screamed until it stopped. Like snot running down her face, gasping for breath kind of screaming. It was hilarious!

So that's it for now. I've got to step up this day by day crap if I'm ever going to finish this darn vacation. I promise, I'll be better.

Hey, give the girl a break, the Ladybug drop was scary!

I don't judge you. I once used Grandma's at Lake Powell. At Bullfrog, 4th of July weekend....

My mom has one and my sister uses it when she visits. She also makes my dad go with her when she hikes Timp, so he can get her a pass to get in free for 4 days.

You totally needed to get a picture of you parking in the handicap parking place.

I love that you write "hilarious" after describing your child's breakdown. ;) I guess there's nothing else you can do at that point. . . Oh, you are a riot!
