Mental Health Day!!!

Sorry I have not had time to write in lately... this time of the year is just crazy. We have been busy with Lacrosse, Spring Football ( YIPPEEE it's Starting!!!), Special Olympics, and several big around the house projects. I feel like I have been going a million miles an hour lately.

That being said... yesterday we decided to take a "mental health day". I kept David, Jake, Ben and Caroline out of school and we went with friends to 6 Flags for the day. We bought season passes this year, so it made for a fun and inexpensive day. The weather was great and the kids had a blast! We were there at 10am when the park opened and stayed until 6pm when they closed! The kids rode almost every ride in the park.. including Caroline who has become quite a daredevil!! She loves the roller coasters. Some of the high speed ones she isn't tall enough for (which is fine by me!!) but she loves the wooden ones and wants to ride again and again.

Ben is a little more cautious, but got into it after awhile and tried some new rides.

David though.... That kid... there isn't a ride fast enough, upside down enough, shake your guts out enough... for him... the faster, the scarier... the better for him!

Yesterday he and 2 friends rode on what is called a Skycoaster... It's basically a 180' free fall bungee jump... he LOVED it and went not once... but TWICE!! It just about made my heart stop to even watch it!! Check out the video I found of a similar ride to get the idea of what I am talking about...

We had a great time yesterday!

In other news, Today is Ryan's 19th Birthday... sigh... my baby is 19??? How the heck did that happen?
