We went to Lagoon today and last night Jayden must have been really excited about it, because he had a dream. It was really cute, and he wanted to record it. So I thought this would be a good place. From here on out I'll just be dictating what Jayden says.
"In my dream, we were on a roller coaster. Courtney was scared. When we were done Courtney found a little carousel. It was a little carousel. It was so little, it could only fit three ponies. And then we all found a bigger carousel with all kinds of animals. I found a tiger, Ethan found a giraffe, Kayleigh found a horse, Courtney found a zebra. All of the sudden, my tiger went faster than ever. And then all of the sudden, Kayleigh's horse was going fast as my tiger. And then Ethan's giraffe was biting the metal on the carousel. And then, our animals came off of the carousel. Ethan's giraffe came off still biting the metal from the carousel. And then, the giraffe came with the other animals. And then my tiger scared away the people at Lagoon. And then all our animals came out of Lagoon. On the streets my tiger was scaring all the cars on the road. And then we went back to Lagoon. We got back on the carousel. The animals came back to their regular spot and they weren't alive anymore. The end."
Incidentally, every time Jayden rode the carousel today, he picked the tiger. And on another subject, he was quite the flirt. He talked to lots of teenage girls who rode next to him on the carousel, who passed him on the sky ride, as well as the girl that ran one his favorite rides, the ladybug one. I'm not sure what he said to one particular girl, but she pointed him out to her friends when she got off the carousel :). What a cutie!
Not to be outshined, Ethan had a moment today too. He was riding the helicopters, and he told Jay that there was a girl riding them too, and he said hi, and she smiled at him. Jay said it's probably because she thinks your cool. He said back, no she thinks I'm hot!
I didn't realize till today, but I better start keeping an eye on these two players! I had no idea I would have to start so young! :)
We all had a wonderful time and got really worn out. Even the girls, who were NOT impressed with most of the rides we started them off with. And though they didn't like hardly any rides all day, they found a couple of favorites. Kayleigh tolerated the carousel, and ended up liking the boats. She actually loved rattlesnake rapids too, once the boys talked her into going. But the winner for both of them was the one where they get to drive a car. Courtney went on it willingly, which was a first... and then, as they would exit, they would scream AGAIN! and run toward the entrance. They did this until it was 9 o' clock and the ride was closing. I can't even count how many times they rode it.
The boys were both troopers. Ethan was a little afraid as we arrived anticipating the scariness of the rides. But after a few rides he was sold and they both rode everything Jay threw at them all day (of course most of them were fairly tame). Rattle snake rapids, the dragon ride by the kids area, and the ladybug and dinosaur drop were their favorites. But they loved every one and wanted to ride them over and over. We didn't even get to ride everything they wanted to. We stayed till EVERY ride shut down and then reluctantly went home. It was a great day. Perfect weather, not too crowded, and super fun for the kids.
