Lagoon Day

Well it was Lagoon day for Infotrax, my work, on Saturday the 9th. (I know...I'm a little late in posting about this. I would have posted earlier, but I wanted to put up some pictures as well, and since I've moved I haven't been able to find the cord to my camera that connects to the computer. So finally Kristen made me borrow my dad's card reader so I can post some pictures on here.) Back to the story...sorry, I get sidetracked easily. :) It was a fun day. Kristen also works at Infotrax, and we're allowed to bring someone, so I brought Andrew (shocker, I know) and Kristen brought our sister, Melodie. We met up at Lagoon with my friend, Kajsia, and her fiance, Mike. Now Melodie hadn't been to Lagoon in about 10 years--the last time she went was with Rosie and Derek when it was their work party for PGM, so obviously that's been awhile. :) She gets a little motion sickness, so she was very hesitant about going on most of the rides with us. When we very first got there we got a few of the bigger rides out of the way, and apparently that was just too much for her all at the same time. She did not feel well and had to lay down for awhile while the rest of us ate dinner. She finally felt well enough to eat something and while she ate the rest of us went to ride on Wicked. Amazingly fun ride. If you ever go to Lagoon, you have to ride it. So the remainder of the day we went on the smaller rides so Mel wouldn't feel too sick. It was a fun day though, and not even too hot since we didn't get there until about 3 that afternoon. :) So here are some pictures for your viewing pleasure.



This is Andrew and me right when we got there.




And Melodie and Kristen


The three sisters


And all four of us. Don't we all look so cool in our sunglasses? :) And for some reason we all decided to wear very bright colors that day...Mel and I did not match on purpose.




Andrew and me on the Colossus before we took off.




Melodie and Kristen on the Sky Coaster ride. Mel took one of Andrew and me too, but I don't have it. I'll have to get it from her someday.




Kristen in the bumper cars

And Melodie. Her picture didn't turn out too well. I couldn't get it right before the cars started.

Unfortunately I didn't get any pictures of Kajsia and Mike before they left. But Andrew and I also got pictures taken in one of the picture booths there at Lagoon. I've always wanted to get pictures taken in one, and I never have before. I forgot to bring those pictures from home to scan in, so I'll have to share them tomorrow, but be excited! They're pretty good and I'll give an explanation for why they turned out so well too. So there was our day at Lagoon. Hooray for free work parties!

Hooray for a free day at Lagoon! Um, I think it's been, like, 20 years since I've been there! ;) The Wicked ride sounds wicked! hehe... Maybe someday I'll get to go to Lagoon again. Glad you had a good time! Loved seeing the pics!

I'm so jealous, I haven't been since the time 10 years ago when we all went. We were thinking about going this year but decided against it since it's so dang expensive. Great pics!

Actually maybe you don't remember, but it was pretty freaking hot for the first couple hours we were there. :) It was a lot of fun though.
