Well, there's no way to beat heat this pervasive. But Magic Springs and Crystal Falls distracted us for a day!
Water slides require held breath. This is Cady Gray's version.
Nice to start off the day with this much enthusiasm!
Time to leave the water and head for some rides. I apologize for the preponderance of daughter pictures and relative paucity of son pictures. I am a bad mother.
You see my source of my problem. What a little ham.
Archer and his dad get ready to enjoy a coaster ride while Cady Gray and I wait our turn.
Hey, there's Archer again! Or at least his hat, in the old-timey car in front of us.
But enough about him. Here's Cady Gray driving our car, cool as a cucumber.
And waiting to ride on the airplanes.
Archer waited, too. The camera loves the back of this kid's head, doesn't it?
Both of them fed the giant mutant albino catfish in the lake.
And both of them ate an monstrous funnel cake with strawberries and ice cream. (But not all of it. We do have some parenting standards.)
And here's the photo taken by the kindly park employee that will be included in the nostalgic time capsule of this summer. Farewell, Magic Springs!
