Last days of summer...

For our back to school party this year we took the kids to Lagoon.
They had more fun and were more excited than we thought they would be...
Emily and Stephen loved every ride, wanted to go on every ride and were never scared. They waited patiently in every line and never once complained.
Annabelle was so, so brave. There were a few rides that she cried while standing in line because she was so scared of the ride she was about to go on. But she waited and loved every one of them! I was so proud of her for overcoming her fears!

Josh was so patient while waiting for the big kids to finish their rides. He was a little to scared for the big ones but he was also too small (thank goodness!) 
We made all the kids go on the Puff the Dragon little kid ride. Emily wasn't very excited about it. She had her arms folded the whole time but she also had a smile on her face...so I think she secretly enjoyed it. Trevor and I enjoyed the mer man that was directly above the ride...we have no idea what the heck he was doing up there but he gave us a great laugh! 

All in all a great back to school party...my voice is gone from screaming so much but thats okay...
We realized just how good our kids really are. 
Thankful, kind, brave, fun, patient...
