Just the two of us

Yesterday, Joey spent the day with the kids and I went to Six Flags, just me and my sister, Tara. I can't even remember the last time I spent that much time away from the kids. I also can't remember the last time I had some sisterly time with Tara. It was nice to get to hang out with her and scream together(well, okay, I was doing most of the screaming and she was laughing at me:). Anyways, it was LOTS of fun! We found happiness with the camera throughout the day that I thought I'd share with you. . .enjoy.
There are these weird signs throughout the park. I thought I'd have Tara imitate a couple.

Tara didn't want to go topless for this one. What a party pooper:)

My "I'm having fun riding in this big log" face. Tara flirting with the photographer with her sexy scrunched up nose. Ew Tara, that photographer was me.

Tara and I think we are the queens of facial expressions. We love to try and see who can look the most ridiculous in photos. I'm not sure who won on this one. We both look pretty hilarious. I bet the workers at Six Flags thought we were mental.

It was getting sunny and quite hot, so I used my map as a makeshift sun visor. I also was trying to make a Napoleon Dynamite-ish face. Basically, I just looked stupid.

3-D adventure ride. I loved these glasses so much that I wanted to take them home with me. I didn't......or did I? Thats something you'll wonder the rest of your life.

The story behind this photo: For one of the rides, there is this sign(see pic below) that says there is a standby entrance for "flash pass" and "single riders" which we have used in the past and gone as single riders. It saves having to wait in the huge line, only downside is having to ride separately. So, anyways, we go up there and the guy tells us its only for flash pass users. We argued a little bit saying, well then why does the sign say single riders? Why is it that just a few weeks ago we came up here and used the line as single riders? He didn't seem to get that the sign said so. Idiot. Anyways, here is me with my angry face looking at the sign that proves me and Tara were right! Change the sign if it ain't right people!

A little something we saw on the ground as we were walking to our cars. Disturbing...why yes! I immediately had Tara get her camera out and take a picture. I mean, how often do you see a chewed off baby doll foot in the middle of a parking lot? I'm still laughing about this. . .nice photography Tara....you are so artistic.

And a special thanks goes to my wonderful husband, Joey, for being Super Dad for the day. He took the kids to Chuck E Cheese, 2 different parks(one to go on a walk, one to ride bikes and play), popped the girls popcorn for their movie they watched together, played legos, put together a 100 piece puzzle, and made them dinner and root beer floats. He really went all out for his Daddy Day with the girls. I guess I need to step it up a notch now:) Thanks Joey-I love you! It was a much needed break!

I was in the process of blogging our adventures as well. But then I thought to myself, why? I'll leave the bloggin' to you sis. Why do I need to blog the exact same thing. I'm glad we got to hang out together yesterday. I had a lot of fun. Next time, we'll go on Runaway Mountain as soon as we get to the park. Take you Excedrine!!!

You are soooo awesome. I love that you went to six flags with your sis. I always save the fun stuff for my kids. Your pics are great! And it was great reading about your adventures. You better find a good way to pay back your husband. Let me know if you need any ideas. Ü

Joey is THE MAN! Every woman who reads this blog will glare instantly at their hubby and envy you yours!
Glad that you had some free time & some sisterly love! What a blast- and no kiddie rides, YEAH!!
ALSO, the hacked off doll foot is beyond creepy. But what a shot!

What a dreamy day. I get sad everytime I go to an amusement park because I am always stuck on the kiddie rides and I just want to have some screaming good fun. Oh, and a dreamy hubby too. ALlen is definitely going to be made to read this post. And totally disturbing doll foot.

That sounds like such a blast!!! My sister and I would have so much fun doing that!..Too bad she lives far away... :(

Love your crazy faces! You are such a fun gal, looks like you had a ball! I especially like the chewed off baby-doll foot! Hilarious! You should have picked it up and made a key chain out of it!

Mindi said...

okay, my favorite part of that was the doll foot--you can't make that crap up!!
i've never been to an amusement park with just adults since my grad night at disneyland, but i think i need to try it out--looks like you had a blast!
