Wave country

So for our excursion this weekend we went to a place called wave country. It is like a water park with a wave pool and a couple of water slides and a kid area. Our neighbor happens to be the manager and got us in for FREE!!! We always like doing fun things for free! Especially when it saves us about $40. So we decided that we would go right when it opened and beat the crowds. we got there at 10am and had a blast. Kambria saw the water park from the highway and said, "I want to go there mom!" When I replied that is where we are going she said "Oh, that would be great! I have always wanted to go there." I was so glad we could make her day. She was so excited that she got to go in a swimming pool where she could use her arm floaties, since the last pool we went to would not let her use them.

So we played in the wave pool for quite some time. Kambria enjoyed being with her dad and having him crash her into the waves. She thought it was GREAT! Weston and i hung around together with me in the inner tube and him laying on top of it holding onto my neck for dear life. It was not his favorite thing. He did not like it until I started to laugh and say WEEEEEE when the waves would crash into us...then he was a "little" bit better, but he would have preferred to not do it. So after a while we decided to go to the kiddie are. Kambria was splashing and jumping like a fish! She loved being able to go out into the water on her own and just have me sit back and watch her. Weston was still cautious about the water and sat on the side by Bryan and me., We eventually coaxed him in so he would stand in the water next to us. Bryan even got him to laugh when he had Weston look at his fish in his hands and then he would squeeze his hands and splash water in Weston's face. Weston thought that was fun.

After a while we decided we wanted to go down the slides. We found the water slide that would allow us to go with the kids sitting on our laps. So Kambria and Bryan went first and then Weston and I went down. Weston was a little nervous, but he did ok. Kambria thought it was so much fun and wanted to go again right away. So We went down a second time. This time when Weston and I went down, my foot slipped at the bottom of the pool and both him and I went under. Of course everything was fine, but Weston was down with going down the slide. So I went and got the camera to document our fun time. So after a couple more times of Kambria going down the slide Weston decided he wanted to do it again. I still wanted to document so Bryan took both kids up. He would go down with Weston on his lap and then wait for Kambria to go down and he would catch her at the bottom. They both thought this was fun.

This is after one of the first times down the slide. Kambria and Bryan. I don't know that you can tell, but Weston is saying "me" in the picture. I asked him where is Weston and he replied with ME? That is the only way i can get him to look at the camera by himself. Not bad though.This is Bryan and the kids waiting for their turn to go down the slideHere is Bryan and Weston. Weston looks a little nervous, while Bryan is trying to smile for the camera. And then Kambria went down the slide. I think Bryan is pretty talented to handle both kids in the water. This was one of the times with just Bryan going down and then catching Kambria. She happened to come out down at the bottom of the slide backwards. Then after a while Bryan decided he wanted to go down the BIG slide. It is a slide that goes up to 80 mph with a 40ft drop. So we waited at the bottom and took the video of him going down the slide. This picture is of Bryan after he completed the BIG slide. After Bryan did it, he convinced me to try it. It was quite the climb up to the top. But there was no wait time once I got up there. And I couldn't really turn around and come back down. Bryan told me to just not look down over the edge. So I can say that I did do it, but I basically got the poop scared right out of me...I got off the slide at the bottom and had to run to the bathroom. It was a scary ride for me. I did it once and that was good enough for me. I won't be doing it again!

This is the video of Bryan going down the slide. Sorry it is turned sideways. I can't figure out how to change it. But at least you can get an idea of what the slide was like.

So that was our weekend fun! And this next weekend we get the priviledge of going to UT to see my brother get married!!! We are so excited. We in fact get to see both sides of our family in one shebang! Bryan's family will be there for the 4th and then my family will come for the wedding. So we get to see everyone...well not Amanda since she is still in Jerusalem! We will miss her, but we know she is having a ton of fun without us!

What a fun day! You are so brave going down that slide. I would have never did it. The wave pool sounds fun though. Have fun in UT at the wedding! Tell your family hello for me.
