Oh boy what a day!!! I am wiped! before I tell you about it I will tell you a little about yesterday. My parents drove over this way and we went to a graduation ceremony at Bobby’s work, and they wanted to see the campus/where he works etc. Then we went to dinner at the buffet at the Palace casino which is so yummy! It was our second time, and my parents liked it, so we have a winner! About halfway through the meal it dawned on me we were running a 5k the next morning at 8:00 am. Here we were stuffing our faces with things like fajitas, mashed potatoes, and ice cream. Oh yes, we were doomed!
This morning we ran the miserable race (recap will be up Monday!) and then we got free admission into the waterpark for running the race, which was cool, because the race entry fee was $13.00 and that included a t-shirt and waterpark admission (which is usually $29!) I love waterparks so I was excited to basically get a “free” day at the park after a hot run.
no this is not the entire waterpark, just part of it!
After the run they had refreshments inside the park, and we changed into our swimsuits and claimed two chairs. They did the awards ceremony then opened up all the rides.
We got in line for this really cool looking water coaster that shoots you up and then you go down crazy drops all in a double inner tube. It was a lot of fun! After that, we floated around the lazy river, twice, before deciding to get some lunch. We sat under a pavilion and ate our overpriced sandwiches, before settling in in the sun and reading our books. We were lounging right by the wavepool, and kids kept running by and slipping and wiping out on their butts. We counted, and about 9-10 kids did this in the span of an hour, right in front of us!
We occasionally got in the wave pool to cool off, too. Around 12:25 it was getting REALLY hot, and I could feel myself baking even wearing SPF 45 sunscreen. We were zonked from the race and the sun, so we decided to call it a day and go home to the puppies. (I took more pictures but somehow they got deleted…ug!!) Anyway, it was fun. The waterpark is small, so the lines for the rides were all really long and we didn’t feel like standing in them. We enjoyed it just long enough to not get sunburned or bored, which works for me. I love a good waterpark, and sadly this one was just meh, ok. I wouldn’t pay the $29 to get in for sure.
Now I am about to start packing!!!! It’s almost here!!
QOTD: Do you like waterparks?
