We’re at the hotel in Suwanee, Georgia and man, it’s been a long day! We were up early and at Six Flags shortly after their 10am opening..and so were about 100 different busloads of kids from various high school bands.
That means that the weather may have been perfect for a day at the amusement park but this deluge of teenagers (about 8-10,000 of them) made it so packed that you couldn’t get on a ride without a 90+ minute wait. It was horrendous!!!!
We had so been looking forward to having a good time and riding rides all day but it was so packed that it made us all miserable. *sigh*
We did ride a few things but ended up giving up after Toad lost his wallet and the crowds just got to be too much.
Oh well, we’re really here for the race tomorrow but the really bad news is that I have kept an eye on the forecast and it is calling for rain at the track all day tomorrow.
Rain means no racing. No racing means a disappointed crew here with me and a hubby that will be crabbier than you can imagine.
I’m so hoping for no rain. Puh-leeeeze, no rain! Just let it hold off until late afternoon, at least.
I guess we’ll see.
I think I am going to close this and relax for a while before an early sleep so I can get up early in the morning.
Oh, and don’t worry…we’re still having a blast. We’ve had more laughs than you can imagine and we’re not letting the not so great parts of the weekend get to us. Slowly but surely I am convince them that attitude is 90% of every experience…it’s making the trip much more fun than it would be if they (we?) let the sucky parts get to us. Gotta see the good and not let the bad get to ya. Least that’s my thoughts on it.
Now, I’m really out of here for tonight.
Happy weekend, y’all!
Peace & Love,
