Tim and I, years ago, started taking our children to this wonderful place. We soon found out, after two years of disastrous trips, that some of our children are not cut out for the fun of a theme park. Every year we went as a family, Antonio was very sick the whole time from the heat. Zeke was having melt down anxiety attacks the whole time because all he saw around was people
in danger on all the rides. Also, Tim himself would be sick from the heat after a short time because the heat would take a toll on him with his Addisons disease. Tim always ended up camped out in a very small air-conditioned room they have there as a museum for the park history. He just as miserable as the two miserable children he had with him in there. The third year we got smarter. We did a change of plans and split up. Tim stays home and plans a wonderful fun day with those who don't do well out at fun parks and I take the crew that really can have fun and enjoy it all.
Thursday was that big day. I had a wonderful foster friend of mine keep baby "K" for us while we went to Lake Winnie. Thank you Mrs. "H"! It takes Baby "K" an hour to eat each feeding with lots of burping her every ounce or so or else none of it stays down. So Tim and I thought it best to have someone be totally devoted to her for the day, so Tim could totally devote himself to Antonio, Zeke, "B" and "T". Especially with "B" potty training and needing to be taken potty frequently. Tim had a wonderful day planned for them all of movies, pizza, pop corn, junk food and games.
I took William, Carolyn and Elizabeth out for the day to Lake Winnie.
The weather could not have been any better. No rain but overly over cast and very little humidity. The lines for the rides were amazingly short too! They got to ride all they wanted without hardly any waiting at all.
Williams favorite ride is these air planes.
Then of course there is this ride where they can go after each other in a safe and fun way!
They all work so hard at life, it is always so good to see them out and having a really good time.
They also have a water park included in the price. So before we leave we always go and let the kids play for a bit on that side. With Elizabeth's Cerebral Palsy she was not strong enough to get out of the current of the lazy river. William had to go in with Carolyn and do a non-emergency rescue. Well I am sure it felt like an emergency to Elizabeth, bless her heart.
They also did the water slides a few times.
God is so gracious to let Tim and I have another wonderful day with the children making happy family memories!
