catch up, part 2 the lazy river
this, by far, was the favorite place for our girls at the water park! cherry hill is a pretty small water park. they pretty much have the lazy river, a inner tube rapid ride, and a kiddie area. again, lala loved the rapids ride and nani just wanted to float in the safe, non-threatening lazy river. we got nani to agree to going on the rapids ride twice, but it was with some protest. the first time lala went on the rapids ride with me, i think i was more nervous than she was, that she might fall out and get held under the water. and sure enough she did fall out of her inner tube, but she came up laughing and wanting more. i swear, that girl is a thrill seeker that has no fear! she adds spice to our lives, that is for sure!
kawena enjoyed the lazy river, too and even took a nap while floating along with mitch and the girls. she was also just as content to sit on the grass in the cool shade and eat grass.
that night we went to visit with one of my old roommates, amanda and her cute family. it had been a year since we had last seen each other and it was so good to be with her again. the girls had great fun playing with her kids and making a mess of themselves playing in the sawdust in their basement that is being remodeled. i just had to remind myself, "hey, we're on vacation! it doesn't matter that they are filthy, they're enjoying themselves!" we stayed pretty late and when we got home that night, nani was exhausted. on her way to the bathroom to get her toothbrush she didn't quite make it and fell asleep on the step.
now, that is a sign of a great day!
