So the morning started out with a grumpy kid that didn’t want to do anything fun today. Finally, we talked her into going back to Water World. It is her favorite place on earth but she has amnesia about going back each time. Very strange.
As soon as she hits the park, it all comes back to her. Where did Syd go? There she is!
I let her know that I would be taking some photos because this was probably the last visit of the season. She kept posing, over and over and over.
Hey, Dad, get a picture of me up here!
Hey, Dad, over here!
Then I hear her yelling when I am across the pool with Reagan. She wanted ANOTHER picture. Notice the pose with knee bent and all. Geez.
We played on all the fun stuff throughout the park. Even got beat up in the wave pool for a while. Finally, it was time to go on the mummy ride again. Its like Raiders of the Lost Ark in a tube ride. This is Sydney’s favorite ride…but you wouldn’t know it by the way she tried to run away from the entrance and was throwing a hysterical fit. People around us must have thought we were terrible parents forcing our kid on such a ride.
So the ride is over and Sydney is now the fearless boss — we are going again! Huh? Dad, its not scary. Its pretend! So we rode again and again. Finally Reagan had enough so I took her out and Kim and Syd kept going. Kim then explained to Syd that the park was now closing and we could not ride anymore. Sydney just looked at her — What about it!?!?!
We talked them into letting us go 1 more time! Then the tears set in. She didn’t want to stop. She didn’t want to leave. Why is it closing? She didn’t understand. You know it must be fun when everyone leaves in tears!
