Waterparks = Love

Um, hi. :)

Thanks for all the congrats on Shane and I being back together! It means a lot to me, and I know he reads the blog (I asked. :) ) so I'm sure he gets a kick out of it, too. Right now I'm just watching the seconds tick by (way too flippin' slowly!) until I can go visit him next month. :)

This weekend I went to Wild Adventures with my family and my friend Baylee. Baylee is the other counselor at the summer camp I work at, and we've become pretty fast friends. Wild Adventures is a theme/water park in Valdosta, Georgia, and we have season passes. It's only like a 45 minute drive from where we live in Florida, so it's not only closer, but cheaper than Disney. (Though Disney wins in quality! Every time.)

Baylee and I agree on one thing at WA. It's all about the waterpark!

So we spent all morning doing this:

I spent the morning going from this chair to the lazy river and back again. I sure do love waterparks. Baylee and I finally decided to ride a wateride, and we got all the way until we were the next people in line to get a float, and this happens....

They close the park for lightening. Murphy's Law, I tell ya. Baylee and I (and the rest of the fam) were huddled underneath an awning for shelter, looking like drowned rats.

Baby Bro took a different approach....

We were there to also see a concert that evening, (Casting Crowns, a Christian band) so we decided to go out to eat to give the weather a chance to clear. After doing a quick change in the truck (all while trying not to flash the old couple walking their dog....) in the Cracker Barrel parking lot, I did as much damage control as possible using a car door as a mirror.

Baylee decided she has more class, and actually went and did makeup in the bathroom. Show off.

After the concert, we stopped at a gas station, and I made some new friends...

I fell asleep in the car, and even though I was supposed to go to a party afterwards, I went straight to bed when we got home at midnight. I'm such a grandma. Oh well. My bed was comfy. :) No regrets.

The next day I met up with Izzy for a 3 miler, and I was super stoked, since I've been craving exercise like whoa. You know. Because I'm too lazy to get off my butt and go do it.

We were supposed to be running/jogging, but we had so much to catch up on (ahem. Like me telling her all the gushy details about Shane and I getting back together...) that we ended up only jogging like a quarter mile.

Oh well. We still walked (briskly!) 3 miles, and bonding with close friends trumps exercise guilt any day. :)
Other than that, just back to camp life. My kids were so cute today.

We were walking to the pool, and somebody (I think it was BabyBro) said I was old. I got super offended. I'm ONLY 24! So then they all started saying (which turned into shouting) "You're so pretty, and young, and skinny, and AWESOME!!" It was so sweet. Well at first. Then they were too busy shouting over each other, it was like they screaming it at me. Haha. But they definitely redeemed themselves for telling me I was old. Little buggers. :)

Tomorrow is my late day, and I have another hair appointment. (Cara, before you get onto me about too many, this one is special! :) So you'll have to read tomorrow!) I hope everyone has a great week! :)



  1. i was about to say! ANOOTTHHEERRR! you know how to make a girl jealous! hahaha xoxo love ya!

  2. Ha, I'm the oldest in my lab at the ripe old age of 25 (almost 26, technically). The guys make me feel like a grandmother.

    Hmm, secret hair appointment. That usually means prom, wedding, someone else's wedding. Now I'm super curious!

  3. You are so pretty. I'm glad you are having such an enjoyable time. I feel like I'm getting super old and I'm only like 20 ha. My brothers are both younger though so it feels that way sometimes.

  4. The water park looks like it was a ton of fun! I haven't been to one in a while and am dying to go before the summer is over!

    Oh, and 24 is super young and you have a lot ahead of you! I just turned 26 and I'm loving it! Definitely enjoying my years before the big 3-0!

  5. that looks like a bunch a fun in the rain. I mean youre already wet so might as well just go play!
    24 is young. I feel young but really I am almost 30, next year! wow, scary.


Leave Love! It makes my heart happy. :)
