Summer fun in the Sun!

Another GE perk!
GE had a company day at Lagoon on Friday. We all received free admission to the park (which includes the water park), a catered dinner with $6000 worth of prizes (10 total, and no, we didn't win any), and Jeff got a half day off of work!
We thoroughly enjoyed it (as we did last year as well). The kids had a ball. We went on some rides and then went to the water park for a couple of hours. Ate dinner and went back on rides until about 10:30 p.m. By the time we put the kids in their jammies and drove out of the parking lot, Reed and Bella were already asleep. Sofie was not far behind them.
Reed loved the rides - until they started moving. So he would scream and cry until they stopped, and then he would stop and be happy again. Needless to say, we only put him on 2 different rides and gave up.
The last ride of the night, Lagoon's new "Odysea". It was very much worth the wait and we'll have to go on it again next time.
Because it was 10 p.m. while we were waiting in line for the Odysea, and Reed was about to go out of his mind, I gave him this bag of potato chips. I didn't hear a peep out of him until we went to the car.
We will most likely go again (possibly get a babysitter for Reed), because it is "bounceback" days and we can go back this month for only $8/person.

Jack sometimes uses the potato chip trick on me too. Works every time.
