Last day of summer...

Macauley and I celebrated our last day of summer vacation together Thursday by taking our friend Ellie Swan to White Water for the day. We got off to a later start than planned because I was signing papers on the new house (we got it! that's another post...) but once we were there the kids were excited to do everything, including this big 4-lane racing slide. I wasn't sure Macauley was big enough for it, but he wasn't skeered, so off they went. My camera battery lasted only long enough for me to get a picture of this guy coming off the slides...bummer. The kids got me on it later and is pretty fast and really fun. The extra tall one to the left of it, though, is way too scary. Ryan's done it before but I won't. I just know my swimsuit would fall off. Unfortunately, about midday there was lightning sighted in the area and the lifeguards cleared all the pools for over an hour. The kids wanted to wait it out, so we spent a lot of time lounging in the semi-sun, eating junk food to pass the time.

Once everything finally opened up again, we only had time for a couple of other rides and then the park closed at 6.

I'm really glad we went though, and I am so glad Ellie came along. Macauley had a lot more fun with someone to do everything with. It's been a nice, lazy summer and this was a good way for Macauley and I to bring it to a close and get ready for school. He's gone for the weekend camping with Ryan's parents now...that kid has quite a life.

I miss White Water! Oceans of fun is good, but I still think White Water is best. Good luck with school next week--we all start back on Monday, except the kids start too! At least it's a half day...:)

I am forever calling Hurricane Harbor, White Water. (that's what it was called when I was growing up. The other day the kids finally said... what is white water?

Anyhow, I added a post about my booth. Check it out when you get a chance. xoxo, Joanna
