National Lampoon's Vacation

This past Friday, we loaded up for a trip to Six Flags Fiesta Texas.  Aunt Sue was treating us. My mother-in-law a.k.a Mimi, myself, Brayden, Bailee, and Aunt Sue headed began the drive at around 10:45. Brayden had never been and was so excited to finally be able to go.  

Well.....  as we get closer and closer to the park grounds... we notice that the parking lot was empty.  I wasn't aware of what time the park opened and was just thinking we were one of the first ones there.  Not so.  The park was closed.  Brayden immediately said "hey, who planned this trip?"  After we had a good laugh, we made some calls and found out that Sea World was open.  

So off to Sea World we headed.  It was great fun!  Of course the costs were outrageous.... (thanks Aunt Sue for treating us!) $15 for parking and $20 for premium parking.... that is just to get in the park!  You can imagine the cost of food.  (Thanks for feeding us Mimi!)

Towards the end of our time there we stopped to buy water and cotton candy.  Mimi handed Bailee a hand full of cotton candy.  Bailee took it, blew her nose, and handed it back to Mimi. The poor girl is so sheltered and had never had cotton candy before!  She thought it was a kleenex to wipe her nose with.  We laughed till our bellies ached.  Of course when we showed her and told her to eat it, she couldn't get enough.  

Then on our way to the exit, we noticed a whole group of Barbies walking in front of us.  It didn't take us long to realize that they were the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders.  I was feeling really old because they looked like high school girls.  Ugh!  Check back for pictures from our day!  What fun!
