I must admit that I don't love huge crowds and I get motion-sickness fairly easily, but I had fun at Lagoon on Saturday. The biggest reason was the addition of my nieces and nephews. John and Jen brought Lauren, Alison brought Isaac and Aaron (Jordan had to work,) and Jeremy brought Sid and Wyatt (and Britnie joined us later.) Now that the "triplets" are able to walk and rides the rides, it was so much fun. Sidney was fun as usual as she got to go on some "big kid" rides with her parents and one with me. The first ride that Isaac and Lauren went on together was the boats. They both seemed a little shocked at the motion but were ok. Lauren hated the planes but was ok with the boats, cars, and merry-go-round. Wyatt didn't really like his first ride, the whales, but seemed to love the boats, planes, spaceships, and merry-go-round. Isaac went on everything and didn't want to leave. I believe the quote was as follows: "Isaac, lets go find Mommy and go home." Isaac: "No...plane, train, car." It was fun to see them run around on the grass and through Pioneer Village. Aaron was a little trooper. Despite the long day in the stroller, he was full of smiles for everyone. All in all, the little kids lasted much longer than I would have though. Isaac fell asleep on the 7 minute ride to Nana and Poppy's house.
I think Mom, Dad, and I had the most fun watching the little kids run around. Everyone enjoyed the train, which was ridden more than once, and even managed to eat a little at lunchtime. I am sure that Dad and Jeremy got some great pictures. (How can we convince them, especially Dad, to load them all on the flickr sight?) We didn't get home until after 9pm and I stayed and regaled my parents with stories from work until past 11pm. I got home around 12:30am and slept very well.
