It was sooooo hot and humid. I thought I was going to melt, and I was so glad I wasn't pregnant! (I was also so glad I'm not Muslim. I saw countless ladies covered, many in these heavy coat-like outfits, and I saw 3 in full black burkas. What really got me was their men, walking around in swimsuits, t-shirts, and flip-flops, while their wives roasted in a winter outfit. Ridiculous. Just thinking about it still gets me riled up!)
The 4 older boys went off on their own, with Craig, Joel, and Jonathan and Bob (for a time) with them. Christine and I took the 4 girls, plus Micah and Drew, as well as Caleb, who is not a fan of rides, or even of amusement parks in general (huh--wonder where he gets that from?!). The girls had a good time in the kiddie area, and it is so perfect that there are 4 of them to ride together!
We closed out the park, finally leaving the parking lot at 8:30. Nathan drove us back home--in the big van, in the rain, in the dark, on the Beltway. Advanced driver's ed! We were so tired--I think the kids are still recovering, LOL.
