Last week The Wife and I spent the majority of the week with my family at Darien Lake Theme Park soaking up (too many) rays, listening to music, and subjecting our bodies to all manner of unnatural G-forces.
We week was enjoyable but took a physical toll on all of us, The Wife most of all, as she came away with a minor case of sun poisoning.
The adventure highlight of the trip was our first ride on the Skycoaster! We decided that we simply cannot stay at the park for 4 days without tackling the huge pendulum drop. So we budget in the extra funds that we would need and made the leap. Well. Worth. It.
We even had the good fortune to be camped directly across the driveway from Jim Kelly, or at least his family, because we have suspicion that he was only actually at the festival for one day for his presentation. Our good friend Jeff made the rounds with the celebrities, because a few days after this photo with Jim, he was able to meet Larry the Cucumber and Bob the Tomato!
By the way…ask him about his braids next time you see him…
We had the sweet little bonus of arriving home to a broken water heater and leaking plumbing. It was after midnight by the time the shiny new copper plumbing was sealed up again, but the water heater is still broken. It is a good thing we have that great big camper to shower in!
