So, we didn't exactly take a crazy cross country trip to Waaaaaaaaaallly World,
and we didn't exactly wackily wield a BB gun to board a thrill ride,
our trip to Six Flags over Georgia
was definitely an exciting time from start to finish.
we decided to visit Atlanta's awesome theme park
on THE hottest day EVER recorded in the city.
106 SQUELCHING degrees.
Just leave it to the Griswolds of the South
to trudge through a concrete jungle of roller coasters and sweaty people
during a record breaking heat wave.
As you can probably guess, though,
And we had lots of fun, too.
The very first thing we did was enjoy some waterfall action
on an old favorite, the Log Jamboree.
Hudson sat in the back with Daddy,
and the fellas left me to be flung around in the front of the floating log.
Down DOWN Down
and our little guy never made a peep.
He loved it.
We may have a little thrill seeker on our hands...just like his Dad.
Then we saw an awesome show called Illuminate,
where dancers moved around to the beat wearing state of the art light-up costumes.
It was pretty great...and the cool blast of air conditioning was a very welcome occurance.
After a visit to Bugs Bunny World,
where Hudson rode the Little Aviator and Convoy Grande,
we found another one of my favorites:
The newly re-named and refurbished
which was actually one of the very first rides ever created at Six Flags in the '60's.
Hudson was a little unsure,
riding through the dark plantation in a boat,
but soon he saw that this ride was
In the Lickskillet Section,
we ran across a Wild West Comedy Show.
I would venture to say that it was Hudson's favorite part of the day,
and afterwards he even got to go up and take a photo with the zany crew.
We took a spin on the Riverview Carousel,
a bumpy jaunt on the Hanson Cars,
and Will and Hudson braved the Rockin' Tug.
Then, the three of us boarded the
Peachtree Square Sky Buckets,
rode high above the park,
and landed just in time to board the train for a scenic tour of Six Flags.
Will was brave enough to ride the park's newest coaster,
DareDevil. Straight up and straight down....No THANK YOU.
But he loved it.
While he waited in line, Hudson and I watched the cars going up and down and
round and round,
until we finally spotted Daddy.
We watched him wave as he went up the hill,
then coasted down fast.
Hudson SCREAMED the entire time...I guess he thought Will was in danger,
because the tears kept rolling until he spotted Daddy safe and sound.
Before leaving,we thought we'd go through the beloved Monster Mansion
at which point, Hudson suddenly and unexpectedly decided that he was afraid of monsters.
He's been talking about a dreaded "Whistle Monster" ever since.
By the time the sun went down,
the three of us were soooooo hot and tired.
But as we hit the freeway into downtown Atlanta,
we had tons of good memories to take with us.
