So last night's trip to D-Land didn't go exactly the way I planned. First of all, it was HOT. And Muggy. Ugh. I mean, the kind of hot where sweat is dripping down your face. And it was seven o' clock at night! So we only went on a couple of rides. I really wanted to ride Splash Mountain, because it had been closed for a couple of months and it had been a very long time since I had been on it. Joe didn't really want to wait thirty-five minutes, but I talked him into it. They changed the way the line goes, and they changed the seats so six people fit in each boat and you each have a seat with a back rest. I liked the old seats better, when you could lean back and snuggle with the person behind you, but whatever. The ride itself was the same. Except for the huge hill. Now this ride has always gotten you wet at the end, but I have ridden it many times and really only gotten splashed a little bit. Well I don't know what they did, but when we hit the bottom of the hill, a huge wave of water engulfed the entire boat and we were soaked! Soaked to the skin! It was like we had taken a shower or jumped into a swimming pool with our clothes on. My hair was soaked as were my shirt and pants(front and back). Even my bra and underwear were wet(I know. Too much information). Joe was none too happy. Of course it was all my fault, because I am the one who insisted we go on it. I tried looking on the bright side and said, Well at least we aren't hot anynmore! He wasn't going for it and decided we should leave. It was pretty uncomfortable walking around in soaking wet clothes, so I agreed. We stayed about two hours. We maygo back on a cooler day after all the kids are in school. That's the beauty of having an annual pass.
Today I had lunch with my Dad, then Joe and I headed out to one of my favorite restaurants, Lucille's for dinner. Miss K's mom gave me a gift card as a thank you for watching Miss K all summer, and of course it was burning a hole in my pocket. The food was great, as usual, and they had live music and we had such a good time.
Oh, here is something I have been meaning to post for awhile. Look what Sophie's Aunt Lisa got her. Isn't it adorable? I love the colors in the pants. I can't wait to see Sophie wearing it. Thanks Auntie Lisa!
































My three thanks for today:
I am thankful for my Dad. Enough said.
I am thankful for an evening out with my husband
I am thankful for good books. I just finished "The Kite Runner". I really enjoyed it, even though it made me feel a bit sad.

Sorry about Dland! I did hear that is was WAY too hot yesterday down there, but I'm sure Splash Mtn felt good! Funny you went to Lucilles (at Victoria Park)...I went there in the begining of the summer when I was down and ran into Christy and Mia from www.tomiawithlove.blogspot.com It was the first time I ever had the nerve to ask someone if their child was adopted from China.

Isn't this heat just awful? I'm thankful for my central A/C - don't know what I'd do without it.
