Tuesday 2nd April 2013

[Note: Yes, there was probably a Monday 1st April yesterday. Can't remember much of it. I think we went to China Buffet for lunch and I had hot and sour soup for the first time and loved it, and the children all went nuts for fortune cookies. Apart from that it's a blank, though. What do they put in that soup?!?]

Picture of the Day: OK, so this is yesterday. Gregory with dessert. It didn't come out in the picture but he had  a huge plateful piled high with chocolate doughnuts and ice cream.

Thing unexpectedly found to have sugar in it of the day: Bean and cheese burrito.

Aquatica today, a water park better than Wet'n'Wild (not difficult)  but not as good as the Disney ones. The problem for me is that I'm terrified of heights, so while I'm generally okay with riding down a flume, I struggle to walk up the stairs to get to it in the first place, especially if those stairs are open. Disney waterparks are built around a mountain so rather than climb steps you wander up a meandering mountain trail, thus removing all the terror for me. Aquatica was all about the flights of steps, so I was limited in what I was able to go on.

Florida was too hot, and my girls and I all got horrendously sunburnt. I screamed all the way down one of the rides, much to the amusement of Gwen and Hari.

Everyone Else Version

Our family loves waterparks, and today it was a really relaxing day. We enjoyed the wave pool, rapids, lazy river (which takes you past dolphins and tropical fish) and the kiddie area was especially good, with flumes the adults could enjoy too. Food and drink was better value than the other parks had been too, and we all did the all-you-can-eat all-day buffet which was pretty good.
