Schlitterbahn (Galveston)

We were forced to take a vacation day yesterday because the kids' school was closed for their annual teacher in-service. We decided to make the best of it and take the kids to Schlitterbahn Galveston. We knew it would be smaller than the NB version but the reviews were good online so we were optimistic about it.

Those kids are definitely mine. Not that I was questioning that, but they are both completely fearless on rides, slides, everything there. It was fun because we could take them on any ride, even if they didn't meet the height requirement, as long as they rode with us. So we basically rode everything except the generic slide at every waterpark that's basically a vertical drop. (Tyson did ask to ride it though...) They would shriek in excitement when a ride went fast, had a drop, or anything. It was fun seeing them so excited. The lazy river was the best one we've been on - it has different paths if you want to go through rapids or waves.

The quote of the day was on the way there - Hailey was getting bored with the longer car trip and started randomly screaming. Tyson said "she's making me DIE." I cracked up. He didn't appreciate it, but I couldn't help it!

Hailey made it through the whole day without a nap somehow, and fell asleep as soon as we got in the car. It was fun, but we're still wiped out today! No pictures... didn't think it was worth trying to keep the camera dry and messing with that drama! We did break our streak of "the kids have never been sunburned" though - Hailey's cheeks and arms got burned, but they are better today thankfully.

Happy end of summer! (But not end of heat... we wish!)
