Fourth of July at Lagoon
So I'm usually not masochistic, but since the Fourth of July is Mike's birthday and he wanted to go to Lagoon, I grudgingly went along. It was projected to be the hottest day of the year at 102 degrees. In addition, I stopped liking Lagoon around high school when I realized that it's lame and the only reason it's still in existence is that it has a complete monopoly.
Luckily, I was pleasantly surprised. The kids had a blast! They loved the rides and enjoyed spending the day with Grandma and Grandpa. FYI, Kaitlyn's headband is my genius solution to the problem of how to keep a cotton ball in her ear (she's still recovering from surgery). We were trying to tape the cotton ball on somehow, but it wasn't working. These stretchy headbands are perfect.
Ashton loved riding on the "friendly" dragon (the little kids' roller coaster), and was dying to go on the Colossus. Unfortunately he was 6 inches too short. He was very brave, however, and went on Tidal Wave and the Rock-O-Planes. He was much braver than his mom, who was proud of herself for going on the Music Express.
And the best part of all: it was overcast the entire day so it wasn't too hot. Yippeeeeee!
