Getting there was an adventure in itself, because anyone in the car was stuck listening to me for about an hour and a half. (lol) I only wish I recorded it via phone so you could see the antics of family and friends, but I was sworn to secrecy. I giggled the entire time even though there may have been a point when people grew tired of hearing me say, "remember when?" Uh...then we arrived at the waterpark that cannot be named. (lol)
Even though I would never get on a ride at local fair that was built in a day, at least there was more than one. Ride that is. This park had a total of ONE (1) slide, and I'm not kidding. The rest of the venue included 4 mini-pools with perks for the Lilliputians from Gulliver's Travels, a place where you can float on a tube, one that you could ride on that had very questionable water, and the final one that was all of 2 feet tall was one you could sort of hang out in. There was a food shack, of which I passed on. That one ride was fantastic, of course, but then there was a thunderstorm forcing everyone to get out of the water as per the rules. After waiting a while, we (13 people) eventually picked up rainchecks and headed off into the sunset.
If you can relate, tell me if we're on the same page when thinking about waterparks. (lol)
The equivalent of where I was:
|Yes, I did a get a mini-tan on the slide-lol|
Meanwhile, try this easy Greek and very tasty recipe from Real Simple Magazine. I used it on a cheeseburger, but this relish may be used to enhance lamb dishes, or as a topping for hotdogs or salads. It only takes about 10-15 minutes to prepare and you're all set.
