Busy Day

Soccer first

Then we went out for ice cream to celebrate the win. The best part of winning was that the coach and parents in Lakeville were the worst we’ve ever encountered. Yelling at the (teenaged) linesman, lineswoman and the (adult) referee. The coach was so mad over (correct) non-call on offsides that he threw his phone in disgust, which happened to go in the tall grass that can be seen in the top of the photo above. Liam is not in the photo below because he was watching the football game on the television.

And then, once again, we went to Valleyfair.

This was in the haunted house. We weren’t sure if we were allowed to sit on this, but we did anyway because our guide was in a hurry and left us in the dust.

And then we went to somewhere new for dinner.

Helena got sprayed by the cannon by the family that was adjacent to me upon my request. She wasn’t sure what hit her.2014-08-30-19h43m54 2014-08-30-19h50m29 2014-08-30-19h56m28

My camera doesn’t do so well in poor light AND with motion so I told the kids here to pretend that they were moving although they had just stepped into the ride.2014-08-30-20h32m58 2014-08-30-20h33m32

Afterward we went on the nighttime dinosaur walk.

Still soaked on the Ferris Wheel. You can see the wet spots from the camera, unfortunately.

Ada didn’t want to go on Thunder Canyon, but she finally relented, and ended up on it three times. Still, she was worried about the waterfalls.2013-06-18-17h06m18
