The highlight of J's year came, Stake Lagoon Day. He was so happy in church three weeks ago with the Lagoon tickets showed up. Apparently the boats were all he talked about in Sunbeams. I know Stake Lagoon Day sound bizarre to all you non locals, but really its just a marketing scheme. You get in for a discounted price one day a summer depending on your Stake, and then never see anyone you know the whole day. It is not endorsed by the stake, there is no greeting anyone. It just a marketing thing. J looks forward to Lagoon all year, for what ever reason. Actually you get in for free but can't ride any rides, so then you buy the discounted ride package, or tickets to ride individually. Of course we started off with riding the baby boats. Our kids are little, and we are cheap, so bought tickets for individual rides, we spent $26 the whole day including parking.
Then we ate lunch. What I love about lagoon is they allow you to take food in, so a lot of the guest bring in their own coolers, and they have tons of pavilions and grass for picnics. I love that I don't have to spend $30 on food and drinks. Not to mention my kids don't like fast food when they are hot. Still I'm sure more guest buy food than not.
Then we went back for a few more kiddie rides, the two things J was looking for was the baby boats, and (kiddie) bumper cars. I don't even know where he learned about bumper cars, he started asking to ride them before we got to Lagoon.
