Six Flags

I know ya'll are going to be so disappointed, but I did not get a SINGLE picture at Six Flags - after comtemplating it awhile, and discussing it with my friend, Ashley, who went with us, I decided not to risk my DSLR camera to roller coasters, water rides and thieves. So, this post will be pictureless, and instead depend solely on my very minimal writing skills. If I'm friends with you on Facebook - you can see pictures there - thanks to Ashley!!!!





Ya'll, we had a BLAST!!!! The day could not have gone any better. The 3 children were GREAT. We went with my sister in law, Ellen, and her husband, Stan, and 4 year old Patton. We also went with my best friend Ashley, her husband, William (who also happens to be dental partners with Stan) and their 5 year old daughter, Mary Alice. Since there were 9 of us, and all of our cars hold 8 people, we had to take 2 cars. The ladies rode in my van with the children on the way there, and the men rode in William and Ashley's SUV with the children on the way back (they got the better deal b/c the children were wiped out and slept almost the entire way home).





One piece of advice - splurge and get the Flash Pass Gold - you literally walk up to every ride and get on. Will and I did not buy it, but the other families did, so when it came time to ride the big roller coasters that the children cannot ride, Will (who will not ride them) kept the kiddos and I borrowed a Flash Pass and we rode quickly - even trade off, don't you think?



The children rode everything they were tall enough to ride- including the Mind Bender - the upside down roller coaster!!!!! I was tickled with pride!!! Now, I don't think any of them will be getting on it any time soon - but they all did it without freaking out! Emma Claire started crying AFTER the ride ended, but she said it was because her head hurt from hitting the side of the car so many times - I completely understood what she was talking about - one word - NINJA - the worst roller coaster EVER!!!!!





The best ones - SuperMan - Goliath - Georgia Scorcher!!!!!





Thunder River is always a favorite too - Emma Claire and I got the wettest of all - drinched to be exact!!!! If only I had been brave enough to take my camera!!!!





After we got home at 11:00, I was tucking Emma Claire in to bed and she told me it was the "best day ever"!!!!! That's my girl!!!!!





Today she's been talking about going again, next time taking her brother, Wilson - so sweet! Wilson sat with me while I was looking at the pictures of FB - he kept saying, "I want to ride!" I want to ride!" - I told him he's got to start eating first, so he can grow tall enough!!! Maybe that will be something I can hold over his head for awhile - not that I bribe him, EVER!!!!!!
