Timber Terror!

I had 2.5 days off, and they (yet again) were full.  On Thursday afternoon before going to work, I mowed the lawn.  Afterwards I tried to mow the massive long weeds along the driveway, but eventually the big rocks broke my lawn mower and the blades quit working :(

Friday we cleaned house in preparation for visitors from Hermiston.  Saturday we entertained our visitors, and the kids really had a great time, while we chatted with the parents. 

Sunday was church, followed by a trip to Silverwood Theme park.  Grace told me that she wanted to go on the "Timber Terror" Rollercoaster.  It's clear that she had no idea what she was getting herself into, because she was terrified after the first drop...   She was close to bursting into tears, but she held it together!  Now she can brag about it, but I don't think she will be getting on a coaster again anytime soon.

After that we stuck with the log ride and shot rubber balls at the Battlezone boats :)  It was fun because she could fire shots at the plexiglass right in front of the boat driver's face, hahaha!  And in turn he could fire a little water cannon back at her.  Good stuff!

We had a pretty good day, and that's as much fun as I've had in a while!
