I took this picture just before we took our first ride of the day.
These pictures were taken right after. We got soaked but it felt good.
We all went on this ride , but the girls wanted to go again so I stayed behind and to take a picture.
Eden wanted to go on this "baby ride" and Maya kindly accompanied her. She said it was soooo boring. They pretended to fall asleep.
Maya prefers the more adventurous rides. Which I don't understand. These two get car sick after driving around for five minutes!
Last year the girls wanted to go on this ride but they couldn't ride by themselves so I, the braver parent, took them and got terribly sick. You'd think I would have learned my lesson...but no.
Do you see my face?! Next year Ede's will be tall enough to go by herself...thank heavens!
It took me awhile to recover from that spinning apple ride. Luckily I was able to enjoy the biggest ice cream ever...seriously, I don't think I have ever eaten that much ice cream in one setting.
Now I don't have a picture of the following story but it is the most memorable thing so it has to be shared...
We had been at the park about four-ish hours and we were looking for the ice cream parlor when Maya started asking about the roller coasters. I explained that it was getting late and both mom and dad don't do roller coasters. She pleaded and kept saying..."just one mom...PLEASE!" So we walked around and found the least scary one, but by then it was dark and I really couldn't tell how scary it was. (It was called TREMORS) Eden wanted to go too. They said they had gone on it before with my mom and Joe. We got in line and waited for like 20 minutes. While waiting I noticed that there were quite a few little kids in line. I decided it couldn't be that bad...
I WAS WRONG!
I have never felt so sick in my life. I kept my eyes closed the whole time and I was so freaked out I couldn't even scream! Thank goodness I went to the bathroom before or else I am quite certain I would have wet myself. It lasted a good three minutes. In my mind I was yelling...
"I HATE THIS!"
"WHY AM I HERE!"
"THIS HAS TO END ANY SECOND!"
Well it did eventually end. I was officially sick and kept my eyes closed the entire 30 min drive home. Maya kept saying, "I am so sorry mom. I won't ever make you go on a roller coaster again." I assured her I would be fine and that I will stick to the baby rides. And now I will happily and deservedly accept my "Mother of the Year" award.
