Maren off to ALA. Wild Waves.

Good morning, it is Friday.

Yesterday I took the kids on a quick trip to Wild Waves to pick up our season passes and have a little fun. We were not staying too long because we wanted to get home and take Maren out to dinner as she left this morning (yup, she is on the way to the airport as I type) to attend the ALA conference in Chicago. She is the chairperson of the Margaret A. Edwards award committee and has been reading books furiously to get ready for this week.

Here are our season passes. We have one for Maren as well, but she still needs to get her picture taken and pick up her hard copy.
First stop, The Wild Thing. Preston enjoys this roller coaster. I think he went on it four times yesterday. Preston is somewhere in this picture.
The kids on the Kanga Bounce. A freaky little ride. Preston said that his conversation with Lillie during the ride was like this, infact Preston wrote this in a word document last night so I could just cut and paste it this morning:

Lillie: This ride is fun!
Ride starts
Lillie: Well, and a little scary
Kangaroos start bouncing up and down, fast
We get to the slow part
Lillie: Okay, now I like i-
Speeds up
More of the same until ride stopsLillie: Okay… now I like it.
After the Kanga Bounce Preston was heading over the the Timberhawk. The biggest and fastest wooden roller coaster this side of somewhere. Out of nowhere Hansen decides he wants to ride the Timberhawk. So, go for it Hansen. Said he had a great time. Preston did ride this two times yesterday.
On the way back to the water part of the park, the kids stopped to point at their favorite rides at Wild Waves. Lillie really enjoys the big hill slide that you sit on the burlap bags and soar down the slide. Yesterday was great because the weather started off quite cold and the park was really on the empty side. Lillie and Hansen did spend 45 minutes in the wave pool, and finding a lounge chair to hang out was next to impossible. You have got to get to the park pretty early if you want a lounge chair.
We took Maren out to Red Robin for a good luck dinner. Lillie likes to smile all cute while sneaking bunny fingers to anyone around her.
The boys even got into a picture as well.
Today is a busy day. Preston has two soccer games.
See you tomorrow.
