We had a hard time deciding on what to do for our birthday bash extravaganza this year. We have three of our birthdays within four days of each other every August. This year we opted out of traditional birthday parties with friends and chose to do a number of activities as a family. We took the kids to Six Flags. Our kids have never been to Six Flags. They don’t even really know what going on a roller coaster, eating a funnel cake or downing an Icee means. Once we pulled up to the parking lot it all became clear. We went on nearly every roller coaster, ate in between while walking, hit every arcade, game, misting station and food stand. My feet were swollen, pruned up and in pain, but I wouldn’t trade that day for anything. We reconnected, laughed until our belly hurt and had so much fun. I don’t remember the last time we did this. I love my camera, but this day my pro camera just wouldn’t have made it through the Tidal Wave dry. I opted for our point and shoot Nikon CoolPix. I have to say, I was just as excited viewing and editing these images as any images I take. And this morning my oldest says “Can we go back to Six Flags again today, mom?” Happy Birthday to my family.
