Holiday World 2015

It finally happened...We went to Holiday World!
Aunt Lisa has been asking us for the past 3 summers to join her when she takes the Jr. Leaders on their achievement trip to Holiday World.  It hasn't worked well in our schedule before, but this year it did.  Of course, it had to be one of the hottest days of the summer, but we still had a wonderful time.  Unfortunately, Daddy wasn't able to join us, but I'm sure we will be visiting again because the kiddos loved it!
Julianne wasn't so sure about this ride - it was the first one she was on.
Reba thought it was awesome to be riding on her own
Finally, Julianne relaxed when she noticed Reba was having fun behind her
We then went to the carousel.  Julianne loved riding on the horse (which is one of her newest words)

They all enjoyed this rocket ride, but the seats were very hot on the girls' legs, so they didn't want to ride again

This free fall drop was a group favorite

Dallas and Reba then made their way to this Santa Sleigh, while Julianne went back to the carousel.
Then, Dallas wanted back on the drop ride.  He rode 3 times in a row before I made him take a break!

It was really warming up at that point, so Aunt Lisa thought they needed to ride something that included water.  Julianne was too small, so we found a place to rest and get a drink while waiting on the others to pass on the raft.

They rode twice because Dallas didn't get wet the first time, but he got soaked the second time!  We then changed into swimsuits, grabbed a pizza for lunch, and made our way to the waterpark.  Julianne and I stayed in the splash pad area while Aunt Lisa and another chaperone, Jeff, took the older two on some water-coasters.  It wasn't too long before Sugar crashed from the fun and sun.
About an hour later, Dallas, Reba, Aunt Lisa, and Jeff returned to play in the splash pad area.

The Big D and Little Miss enjoyed "racing" Jeff down the slides!
It was getting close to time for the Jr. Leaders to meet up to head home, so we made our way to the front of the park.  Then, the rain cut loose!  So, it seemed like a good time to take my group home too.

Until next time...
