Six Flags

Yesterday, we took the boys to Six Flags!  They had gotten Read to Succeed coupons from school.  We learned that they could upgrade those coupons to season passes for $35.  Score!  We ended up getting season passes for all 5 of us.  This first visit was a bit warm for my liking, but I sure am looking forward to Fright Fest and Holiday in the Park when it is cooler.  :)

The boys got me on Batman and Mr. Freeze first thing.  Holy Moley - my stomach was in the throat!  I *may* have said, "I cannot believe that people pay actual American dollars to feel like this!"  Haha!  I decided to be a bit more cautious for the remainder of the day and stuck to rides that were less likely to make me feel nauseous.  :)

The little boys rode Harley Quinn's Spinsanity over and over and over again.

Wade & Clayton rode the Riddler's Revenge.
 We all rode Judge Roy Scream.  I had talked it up and told the boys how much I loved it when I was a kid.  Drew & Owen didn't love it.  Drew kept leaning over to me and saying, "I don't like this.  I don't like this."  He was quick to lean back and console Owen in between telling me how much he disliked the ride.  He would say, "Owen, it's okay, Buddy.  We're almost done!"  Then he would go back to, "I don't like this.  I don't like this." to me.  Bless his heart.  He was trying to console his brother even  in the midst of his own angst.  Sweet boy.

 Mine Train
 The Log Flume
The Shock Wave now has a Virtual Reality element to it where you can wear a headset during the ride.  Apparently, it makes it feel like you are a fighter pilot.  Wade & Clayton loved it!  The littles and I were content to watch from the sidelines.  :)

 The Antique Cars

 The Swings

 The boys were dying to go to the midway and play some games.  Owen won a hat and a sword.  Drew won a stuffed animal.  Everyone's a winner!

We finished off the day with a carousel ride.
It was a super hot day o' fun, but we had a good time!
