So, after a good meal, socializing and a good night's rest, we headed out on Day Two to a little place near here called Heritage Square. It's basically a run-down small amusement park but do you know what they have? An ALPINE SLIDE! Gravity's roller coaster. It was a must-do and we must-did it.
Here are Elizabeth & Lexi (belonging to oldest bro Dave, for those of you who need me to label everyone) heading up on the chairlift.
And the whole group of us at the top. We are kind of clustered by families (well, except TBone) so you figure it out. You might wanna click on the picture to get a better look.
All lined up & ready to go. I think it's funny they make you show your ticket at the bottom AND at the top. I say, if someone hikes up that thing they deserve a free ride down. But I'm way nice and stuff.
Ttocs Nosppej ready to go.
After cruising down the mountain a couple of times we headed over to do some go-carting. This is where some family competitiveness reared its ugly head. Unfortunately SOME people had faster cars and there just isn't anything you can do about that.
Here is my dad after having just take over Dave to move into 2nd place (as indicated by his fingers, obviously).
He then set his eyes on poor Gty who never saw him coming. What is with the tongue??
Gty expressing his opinion on the matter.
Kip did what he could to keep my dad at bay (i.e. keeping him pinned against the wall) but it was no use. Dad's car was the fastest. Luckily he was super humble about it and stuff.
Here he is acting bored cuz it was so easy to pass everyone. Way humble.
There was then some mini-golf playing.
And some little rides taken (due to having leftover tickets). Gty never quite recovered from the Tilt-O-Whirl. He felt sick the rest of the night. JBird & Beebs were unfazed.
We then headed back, ordered pizza for the kids, left the big cousins in charge and went out for an "adults only" dinner at Hacienda Colorado. Goooood mexican food. Huuuuuge diet cokes that never get fully empty before another is placed before you. Fuuuuun conversations. My stomache ached at the end due to over-eating, over-drinking (soda) and laughing so hard.
LtoR: Tonya & Dave (my oldest bro & wife), Mom, Dad, Landee, Gty, Blondee & Kip (youngest bro & wife, pseudo names), Mignon & Scott (the middle bro, just older than me & wife).
You may have noticed Kim isn't there. She was ::ahem:: unable to attend. We missed her & her live-in boyfriend/finace RodTodd immensely and intensely. Maybe next time. ::saddy face::
