Yesterday was a big trip to Wild Waves with Auntie Stef. She was able to take the day off of work to hang with thousands of folks in Federal Way. Actually the park was not nearly as crowded as I thought it would be for a mid day 80+ degree day. Here Stef is with the kids when we first arrived.
Hansen decided that he would ride on every crazy ride there was. The Wild Thing was first and sure to his word, Hansen was on it. My camera is just not good enough to actually get a picture of them on the ride screaming...well, Preston and Stef screaming, Hansen just looking ill. The three also went on the Timber Hawk and the Disco Flashback. Hansen would look like he was hanging on for dear life and trying not to blow chunks everywhere, but then he would get off and say how great the ride was. This picture is getting off the Wild Thing and Lillie greeting the riders.
Lillie and I did not go ride free, we just stuck to the carousel, the frog hopper, and the dry slide.
The ride Hansen enjoyed the most was the Timber Falls (or something like that) where your on a boat and you go down a steep part into the water, everyone on the ride gets totally wet and those standing on the walkway get even wetter. Stef and Preston kind of got Hansen a little when they were all going to stand in the "get totally wet" spot, but at the last second Stef and Preston moved a few feet and Hansen got drenched. Hansen could have spent the whole day going on just this ride, then watching the splash.
After the rides Stef treated us to lunch. After Lunch it was over to the water park half. The water park was far more crowded than the rides half. Preston and Stef wandered over to a few big slides while Hansen stuck to the wave pool with me and Lillie. Actually the water seemed very cold to me, while the hot tub seemed not hot, but the right temp for a pool. Lillie and I hung out in the hot tub and watched Hansen surfing the waves. We got home just after Maren. Good day.
Today is going to be like 90 degrees in the afternoon and Preston has two soccer games! We will be hanging out in Puyallup for the King of the Hill Tournament for much of the day.
See you tomorrow.
