Six Flags 2012

We made our once-a-summer trip to Six Flags with our Read to Succeed tickets. The kids get a free ticket each year for completing their reading logs, and I also get one as a teacher. We found coupons for tickets for $34.99 for Hubby and E through the March of Dimes, and then you had to add in $20 for parking. You can bring in food and drinks...so we packed our lunch.

This year there is a new show at Six Flags at the Crystal Pistol with i lunminate. A girl from school was telling me about this group...so I wanted to check it out. We were told that this group that performs at Six Flags was trained under the original group that was on TV. We waited in line about 20 minutes to get in to see the show, and only 2 of the 5 of us got a seat. The other 3 people had to stand in the balcony to watch. I bet this is the first time in a LONG time that the Crystal Pistol has seen a line to get inside!

Here's a pic of the group after riding Thunder River. I have not ridden this ride since I was a kid, and I had no plans to ride it today. I've had my insulin pump about 10 years now, and I try to stay away from things that will get my pump drenched. However, I did ride Thunder River with strong encouragement from the group...wearing my poncho ...and I still got wet! My pump...it was dry! On another note, E got thrown out of her seat while we were riding. And that is why I gave this ride a "thumbs down." By the way, the kids were completely drenched and  loved every minute of it!
After we were completely dry, we decided to ride another one of Our Girl's favorite water rides...Log Jamboree...or The Log Ride as we call it.
Check out these great pics from the ride!
Here's E with the kids after the Log Ride. As you can see, we were wet again!

We ended our day of fun with dinner at The Varsity! It was a great last day of Summer Vacation for this Mama who goes back to work for pre-planning on Monday. Good-bye Summer 2012...you've been fun!
