7:30 Summer 1997 = the last time I visited an amusement park. Alabama Advntr, here we come!
7:45 just had a divine appt because I took the wrong exit! I make plans, but God directs my steps.
9:00 We’re in! The $10 tickets are for real.
9:15 Sitting on the curb…gonna people-watch for the next 45.
9:30 The folks taking advantage of cheap tickets are an interesting bunch. People-watching is my favorite!
9:45 Far too many girls walking around w/front of pants hanging open. What’s up with that?!
10:00 bathroom, lockers, tubes, sunscreen

10:40 Two words: giant. bucket.
11:00 Lazy river — man, I’m getting old.
11:30 UpSurge! Longest line evar!
11:45 1 man in line has taken it upon himself to be the tube police. I’m torn…
11:45 He’s getting on my nerves, but I appreciate his keeping the tube thieves in check.
12:20 AT THE TOP! 8 yr old boy crying on the steps. he’s scared to go down the slide.
12:25 Boy’s mom just pointed Abbey out 2 him. “Look at that little girl. She’s going!” Not cool, mom, not cool.
12:30 UpSurge was worth the wait. Awesome slide!

1:00 feeding bread crumbs to pigeons in the parking lot
1:15 sunscreen, bathrooms and stroller rental; $12?!? After the next few hours, it will be worth every penny.

2:45 I may go home with a blister, but I refuse to accept a sunburn. Time for more sunscreen!
3:00 Abbey is fearless. She wants to go on the upside down ride, but she’s not big enough.
3:02 SO GLAD I DON’T HAVE TO RIDE THAT ONE
