but Six Flags was fun. We were lucky - it wasn't too crowded today, and there weren't many lines. The longest line was on the next-to-last ride (the ride formerly known as the Bobsled) - 30 minutes. The kids had a BLAST - since neither one had been before, they didn't know what to expect, and they enjoyed every minute.
We had decided that, because of Herself, we wouldn't force the kids to ride anything, and we would skip the more obviously "scary" ones. I messed up only 1 time - it's been so long since I've been there that I didn't know what the new names were. We got on the "Runaway Mountain".....I thought (as did SG) that it was the ride formerly known as "The Cave" - a very relaxed, almost boring ride. Instead...it's a totally dark, very fast roller coaster. Herself almost lost it...fortunately I was in the seat besides her and was able to help her hold it together.
The water rides were hits, as was the Runaway Mine Train. It was a GREAT day..but very very exhausting. Especially since I didn't sleep last night (sore foot....I should have taken something, but didn't. I AM drugging up tonight, though) We got away with splitting 2 lunches...at $12 EACH, that's a good thing! We bought the photo of us on the log ride.....but skipped the others. Too expensive. :lol:
I don't know if we can do this again - for the 4 of us, With Valet parking (because I was NOT gonna walk in this heat, and it was only $20; regular parking is $10, and close-in is $15), we spent $177. NOT including food, photos, or souvieners. :gulp: Still, it's vacation - the only time of year we splurge.
We got home, and had 2 boxes on the porch - my Milking Machine! ( Cut for photos!Collapse )
Finn seems to be OK. I'll be pulling him out of the pasture tomorrow to check on his incisions - he's moving around - stiffly, but moving - so he's doing as expected.
