The sunrise service was at 5:30, so mommy woke me up around 4:30, and I got ready to go and played the piano a bit before we left at 5. When we got to the beach, a bunch of people were already there, and they were just starting the service. We sang for a while, and someone talked, then we ate breakfast – lots of yummy food! Milli, Caroline, and I were running around talking and playing/wading in the water. We couldn’t go very deep because none of us had swimsuits, but we had fun splashing each other. Ashley and Meg came home with us, and we got ready to go to Dreamland, I practiced guitar and piano, and then we left. On the way there we listened to part of “Pilgrim’s Progress” on tape, and rested some. Dreamland was fun… we were the first people there, but by the time we were all ready to swim and go on the rides the H’s, Dennis, Dipak, and Jarod were already there. Sarah and I went on most of the slides and rides together, and Esther was with us for a while. We headed over to Hippo Island/the volcano for a while and were running around and swimming in there. Philip and Dipak were trying to scare us by saying there was a crocodile in the cavern pool. We were getting out when the Bs, Lisa, Zoë, Cs, and Nathan arrived, and we headed back towards the black hole and did all those rides over again, then went in groups down the 5slides, racing to the top and racing down. Nathan and Isaac were wearing their inner tubes around their waists as they ran up, and were bumping into others to try to knock us over. We played tag in the “Jacuzzi” for a while, which was really fun. I only got tagged once, because the guys were being unfair and only going after certain people. I tagged Nathan, though. We got out and waited for an hour or more to order and get our food, then ate. When we finished eating, we went back towards the black hole and dragons (near the beginning of the park). The dragons were great… they were a ride I had gotten really scared of last time because I didn’t know what to expect so got really scared; they’re dark, fast, steep, twisty, and small. But this time I went on them again and loved it… went down all 4 of them. Sarah and I went off and did a few rides by ourselves and then went around the lazy river once. We got out and found the others playing tag again at Hippo Island, so we joined in. We eventually ended up playing that if you were tagged, you were it with everyone who had been tagged already, and last person to be tagged was it for the next round. After taking a few pictures, we walked back to the lockers to change. On the way my wristband was really sticking to me and I couldn’t tear it off, so Nathan suggested biting it… I didn’t bite it off at that point, but later on I did. It was a fun day… I’m really worn out, though. Most of the rides were quite high, so you climb up tons of steps to get to them. And then I was chasing people around Hippo Island a whole lot playing tag, and just swimming around.
Good fun, all of it. Check my art and writing blog… I got some new stuff up there. I think it’s mainly artwork.
