I am SO tired.
The kind of tired that can't be dispelled by any amount of caffeine.
However, that probably won't keep me from trying.
We took an impromptu trip this weekend to Six Flags amusement park in Kentucky with the girls.
It all started Friday evening actually.
We went to a movie.
I drank a coke.
When it was time to sleep, for some very strange reason (hmmm, the coke perhaps?), I couldn't sleep. Finally fell asleep around 5 only to be awoken at 7.
Babies show no mercy.
Saturday morning we packed up and were on the road by 9:30, which is Peyton's morning nap time.
Of course, nobody slept.
Our plan at the park was to just go until the girls could go no more.
They had so much fun! I have to admit that it was much more fun than when Nate and I went by ourselves last month—and we didn't ride a single adult ride. Something about their excitement is just contagious. It's like experiencing it for the first time, all over again.
Plus, they did really well. We made it to about 6:30, which far exceeded my expectations. After a nap while walking back to the hotel, both girls seemed a bit revived, so we even decided to push our luck by going out to eat instead of ordering in.
Bedtime was tricky. The girls have separate rooms at home, so being in the same room did not promote blissfully falling into dreamland.
All in all, a very good weekend.
But I am paying for the fun today.
I'll leave you with some pictures from this weekend!
This is Peyton right before the roller coaster. Charlie rode with her Daddy in the car ahead of us. She says it was fun, but refused to go again! I guess she yelled "Mommy" loud enough for the passengers ahead of them to hear, but I didn't. It was a pretty intense roller coaster for little kids!! I was surprised.
