Since we live about an hour away from Six Flags in IL we made the wise choice to go on Friday. David was cute and had a hot breakfast ready for all of us (I was a little skeptical if it would be "power food" or " puke food" for us on the rides but it turned out that nobody threw up or had problems :)
Some things that I loved about our Six Flags trip:
*The smell of ice-cream cones, nuts, cotton candy (bummer I have to work like 15 hours to pay for a small lemonade)
*The thrill of ride after ride-no matter how tired your feet are you always have a little more left in you to travel across the whole park.
*Walking as fast as I could to a ride without looking like I was anxious-I mean after all I am an adult :)
*Convincing Jordan that the Raging Bull would be an "experience of a life time"-funny how we always tell kids to not fall into peer pressure but then we're like "oh try this ice-cream it's my favorite", "come on you'll be the only one not on the ride-you'll love it I promise!"
*The slow beginnings of rides...AAAHHHHHH!!!
Some "not so good" things about the trip:
*Rain + wind = rides closed for 2 hours
*Eigth graders holding hands, hugging, cutting in line and singing along with the Six Flags music (if you can't tell I didn't like having bus loads of eighth graders there)
*Being stuck in the "flying" position on the Superman...it was still my favorite ride
*Having my head feel like a human pinball machine on the Raging Bull (will I go again? You bet!)
*The wonderful idea we had to go to the indoor Batman ride while it was rainy outside...seems like everyone in the park had that same great idea! 1 hour later we managed to get on our 20 second Batman ride! Hey atleast I was able to listen to those 8th graders sing while we stood in line!
*"cheap" parking that was still probably in WI...as if we needed to do anymore walking
*I hate getting wet on rides and then walking around with crusty jeans...sorry we didn't go with you on the ride Jansen...good thing you have a nice dad!

David and I caved and bought season passes. Is that childish? Yeah I thought so. Who cares, I'm SSOO excited to go again!
