Day 371: Noah's Ahhhhhrk!

Saturday, the last hurrah of our staycation, we drove to Wisconsin Dells and played all day at Noah's Ark Water Park with some friends (Ryan, Mel and Sadie Jackman; Shawn, Huiminn and Hobson Call; and Richard and Jenna Thorsted).  We all had a blast!!  As is usual, Clinton hung out around the wave pool and avoided almost all of the rides however he did venture down the Kowabunga and the Quadzilla.
I, on the other hand, was feeling quite adventurous and went on the Anaconda (it's a flippin' roller coaster, but on water...way awesome!)
The Half-Pipe (I about pooped my suit on this one.  It's a super steep drop--you totally free-fall before landing on the slide--but man, what a rush!)
The Lazy River (not so adventurous, but definitely relaxing)
and the Time Warp
I don't think I'd have felt half as adventurous if it weren't for my friends.  It was so much fun spending the day with them and I am so grateful for my home-away-from-home family!

Ha ha:
For rather obvious reasons I don't want this to become my new nickname, but I was labeled "the screamer" at the park by my friends.  I was having so much fun on all the rides that I'd scream and scream until I started laughing.  Oh man, I had an absolute blast!  My throat was totally hoarse from all of the screaming-turned-laughing.  What a great day! :)

  1. I remember when 4 of us came down from that racing slide, I couldn't see you but I could hear myself and you screaming our way down, and THEN your laugh even before we hit the bottom! LOL. It was so much fun!!
