Lagoon = FUN

We went to Lagoon for fun times with the family. We ususally do this every other year with my dads work, so this was one of those years! We started off with wicked, which.........was WICKED! My stomache hasn't felt like that since they opened the Samurai. The beginning is the craziest part! Anyway, we went on a lot of rides, but I couldn't go on many because I still had to work for a few hours that night. When I got back everyone was eating and as you can see in thep picture, the Archuletas are right in the background. My dad works with Davids grandma and we were hoping he was going ot be there...but alas. *sigh* Anyway. I am pretty proud of my mind control skills. We have been brain washing Justine all week that the sky coaster was soo much fun. She even had actions. She would point to three of her fingers and say "Lacie, Justine, Dad" then bring the fingers up high and swing them down just like the sky coaster. This imagery helped even when we were right there in line to do it, she was so excited. Usually we would never be able to get her to do that. The problem was that the line was waaaay too long and we were going to have to wait until next time. She was upset. Once the day was coming to an end and my dad had to leave, Justine FREAKED out! She wouldn't even move and was just yelling at me because she wanted dad. Finally I was just sick of it, so I took her to the car and we waited there for an hour and a half for the rest of the family. It wasn't the best end to the day, but I would rather that than have her sit and yell at me. It was fun over all. Lessons learned: 1. Go to the sky coaster first to avoid a huge line. 2. Make sure dad sticks around for the whole time, otherwise Justine will freak out. 3. Make sure David Archuleta is notified well in advance for Lagoon Day.

It was funny because Justine just ran up and did this pose right after mom said that we were taking a picture.

Eating ice cream. Notice the Arhculetas in the background talking to Dad.

Um, yeah the White Roller Coaster scares me...

A great example of Justine in her "mood"

Bumper cars, gotta love em.

Lace it seems you had too crazy of a lagoon day. So i decided that you and david would make a great couple. Even though he is younger than you i think you guys could just sing your lifes away together. Sound like a plan? i will be the first to buy a ticket for that performance!
