The Lagoon

The day after Cambria's blessing my parents went back to California and we hopped in the RV and went to Lagoon. It was such a fun little trip that really felt like a getaway without really getting away. We parked the RV in the camp ground next to Lagoon and spent 1 night and 2 days there. The best part was that the campground was connected to Lagoon so I could walk to the RV anytime I needed to feed the baby or when it rained...which it did...a lot. Still me made the most of it and really loved every last minute.
Day one
By the time we got up there and parked it was lunch time. So we spent the first day doing whatever the boys wanted. Last time we came Trey was scared of every ride and would just cry.  This time he realized he was having fun and would try every ride that he was tall enough for.  Tatum blew me away. He rode every roller coaster with the biggest smile on his face, even rides with loops. If he was tall enough, he rode it.  There were probably only 3 rides in the park that he couldn't ride.
We spent a few hours at Lagoona beach. It was so refreshing to get in the water on such a hot day.
Again Tatum had no fear and would go on any slide.
Eric got an important work call so I took the boys through all of the old pioneer buildings while we waited. They loved this old church so much.
Day two
After a great nights sleep in the RV we woke up and were able to be one of the first people in the park. We hit up all of the big rides first before the crowds and took Tatum on Wicked, Spider and Colossus. Baby girl was so good the whole time, just happy as can be in her stroller.
Again we spent a few hours at Lagoona beach. Tatum went down the white tube slide probably 20 times and Trey spent the afternoon in the lazy river.
While we were in our swimsuits we went back into the main park and went on all of the water rides. I took the boys on the log ride and when we got off a huge storm came busting through. We ran into the Arby's and had dinner while we waited for the storm to pass. It didn't pass so I ran the baby out to the RV while to men enjoyed a few last rides. After that we called it good and headed home. It was such a fun little trip which we will have to do again every summer, plus the kids said it was better than Disneyland...score!
