Everything about this picture cracked me up - we were not expecting a big drop and splash - one person is even holding their cup on the ride, which shows you how "mild" this ride was, that they let you hold things while riding it. And the mom comforting the kid in front of us, with the "I'm going to die" look on the sibling next to her was too funny.
Needless to say, we were soaked. So we went on it again the following day - here's our "after" picture:
We could (and did) wring out our shirts, they were so wet.
Another feature of most of the water rides on the Islands of Adventure side of the park was that you could squirt a water cannon at riders as they floated by - Sam and Allie had way too much fun doing that, and I will say it was very entertaining watching their glee as they squirted the unsuspecting riders. I think it cost something like 50 cents per squirt; money well-spent considering the laughs we all got out of it.
The other set of pictures that I have to show you are when we were eating lunch at Mel's Diner. We were sitting there when suddenly Beetlejuice slammed up against the window and scared Allie:
Allie jumped, and then Beetlejuice and Sam shared a moment making fun of her...
She then recovered and calmly ate her burger while Beetlejuice tried to make her laugh - I love the staredown she was giving him...
He was making the rest of us laugh, that's for sure!
I'm sorry that I'm not using collages at the moment for my posts - I still haven't found the right program to replace PicMonkey. I miss that program, but it crashed my old computer all the time due to Flash. Any suggestions for a Mac? I really just need a program where I can make photo collages - being able to add text would also be nice, but I can do without if need be.
It's been a couple weeks since I've posted pet pictures, so here's a double dose, with an extra shot thrown in for good measure:
I guess our short-lived cold front made for desperate times with Paco and Kip, because they actually slept next to each other on the couch. This was in the beginning - eventually they ended up touching each other, which never happens, but they must have been really cold.
Whenever someone is sleeping in the guest room, Kip takes advantage of the door being open to sleep on his "princess pillow" as we call it - he LOVES this particular white sham. He was very happy when Allie was here over Christmas, as he got plenty of time to sleep in his special spot.
And of course I had to include this shot - Paco sleeping like a tiny little puppy! Just like babies, animals are extra cute when they're asleep.
Well, the weather forecast has been all over the place for our half marathon on Sunday - first it was looking to be cool, then heavy thunderstorms, then just plain rain (and a lot of it), but with warmer temps. So who knows what we will get for race day...it'll be memorable, that's for sure.
Have a great weekend!
