Six Flags (Oct. 21, 2006)

We took the kids to six flags. This was their first trip there. Let me tell you the excitement in their faces was worth it all!! I have never seen them so happy and excited in my life!

They started off riding the swings. They then got on the mindbender with James. We all rode the scream machine and went through monster plantation. James and Shawn rode the Ninja and James got on the Goliath with some of his friends. The line for the Goliath was 3 hours long. Shawn and Cody waited in in for 1 1/2 hours before they just couldn't take the wait any longer.

Hope is nicknamed "motor mouth" and she lived up to her nickname. That child talked everyone to death(lol). She got to talking to James' friends and had them all laughing at her.

They also played games and went through the gift shops. They loved every minute of their trip. There were people just walking up to Hope "giving" her things. There was one couple that walked by us and the man looked at Hope and said "kid - today is your lucky day" and gave her an Auburn Basketball. She lit up like a Christmas tree and thanked him. There was another couple that gave her a teddy bear because she tried so hard to win one.

We got there about 11:00 and left when they closed at 10:00. James and I were exausted. The kids fell asleep in the car not long after we got back on the interstate and slept all the way home. They don't even remember getting out of the car to come in the house (lol).

Anyway - I know you all want to see the pictures instead of hearing me ramble - so scroll down and enjoy.
