6 Flags – 8/13/2012

More flags more fun? At least the kids think so. This is our first family trip to Six Flags ever, let alone since we moved to St. Louis. It isn’t that far from home. The kids don’t look excited in the photo before we entered the park, but I promise we had trouble keeping them from running to the entrance!

If you don’t know me well, then I should come clear that I get motion sickness. Not the normal kind of motion sickness after riding in a car on a hilly road for hours, but the kind where I can’t play 3D style video games for more than 15 minutes at a time. So I took half the maximum daily dose of a motion sickness pill about 2 hours before we got to the park.

When we got into the park, the first thing we did was go to the new Batman roller-coaster. Danelle and Corvin went while Sonora and I watched. I didn’t mind cause it looked too rough for me. Corvin looked a bit pale. The next ride was another roller-coaster that Corvin and I rode together. It did its worst to me, but I didn’t get sick. Of course I wasn’t feeling too good. So I took the second motion sickness pill bringing me to the maximum daily dose.

The rides continued and I was on the edge of feeling okay most of the day. Eventually we got to the kid rides and as much as they want to be big, they appreciated them!

In the end, I made it through the day, but I was asleep on the soft within 30 mins of getting home and still slept through the night. The kids and Danelle and the kids had a great day and I put up with it as best I could. They want season passes and I guess I’ll get more sleep…
