Waterpark Birthday Fun

For McKenzie's 11th Birthday, she got to take a couple friends from school to the waterpark.
We spent the entire day there and then came home for cake:
Here is a look back at our day....

Addison is all sunscreened up, hair and all....ready to go!
Daddy and Addi ready to go dip their toes in the pool.

McKenzie and her friends Tiani & Kaili
This was a rare moment. We let them loose in the waterpark and only saw them when they were hungry, thirsty, or happened to be around the same ride.
A few friends of ours also met us over there.
Zach & Lesley Rashman
Julie Svatek
Drew & Alaina Ladner
Alaina's sister Anna & husband Jeffrey

Addison held out as long as she could, and finally fell asleep in the early afternoon while Julie held her.
Below are us girls getting ready to race down the water slide.

My mat got stuck at the beginning, so you can't really see me in the far left lane behind Julie, then there is Alaina and Anna.
Ahhh, finally finished!
The boys going down the waterslide

And here are the girls carrying up our 4 women tube for the TORNADO!
Me, Anna, Alaina & Julie
And here we go...

And here are the boys...
Nick Drew Jeffrey & Zach
(we learned later that there is supposed to be a 700# limit...oops!)

Great expressions from Lesley, Julie & Anna on the Tornado
A few of us brave souls rode on the Shaka, and YES, I said "us" because little chicken Kim overcame her fears and in a moment of weakness, gave in and blurted out "I'll ride it with you Anna!"

Here is Nick & Anna (Alaina's sister) on the Shaka

Nick & Julie
(you can hear Addison say "Daddy" twice in the background)

Me & Anna on the Shaka.
No one told Julie that the camera was in video mode, and so, thinking she was taking pictures, you only get a blip of my brave ground breaking experience! Which is probably good, because I did a whole lot of screaming, and because of that, Addison started crying on the side watching us. Poor baby!

Nick (left) & Drew (right) braving the Cliffhanger.
Notice Nick is a little slow in getting up...

After taking the picture of McKenzie and her friends, Trevor said, "Mommy, take my picture!" So I told him, go stand over there, he did...when I looked up, there he was, all ready for his picture: (no prompting at all)

Addison and Trevor drying out and eating Cheetos!
As you can see, naked Addi is VERY excited to be snacking on Cheetos!
Here lies Andrew & Alaina Ladner
This is what happens when you have too much fun at the waterpark:

"Addison, it's time to leave!"
