The title is a bit misleading, but that’s the slogan for Lagoon amusement park in Farmington, Utah on all the TV commercials. Growing up in California, we attended Disneyland, Knott’s Berry Farm, and Magic Mountain. So Lagoon isn’t anything fancy compared to those parks, but still, we had fun. Gotta get dressed up in hot and itchy costumes for western pictures too. And of course it was 102 degrees last Friday, June 28th 2013. Hot-ter-than-hell that’s for sure. Thankfully, Utah’s heat is dry. But still, no likey.
It was Paul’s company’s celebration for 40 years in business. Hence the matchy-matchy shirts like we all attended the same day care.
Here I am, trying to stay cool at the company picnic dinner with a Nestle crunch bar. The runny mascara is due to all the waterslides. Again, just trying to stay cool! Notice I wouldn’t wear the extra thick and extra dark man t-shirt. Too hot. Cool is the name of the game.
The kids (and I think Paul) loved the Vomit Vortex. I don’t know the real name of the ride, but that’s the outcome so who cares what it’s really called.
For all the misery the heat wave has brought for nearly a month now, I tell myself, it’s one less day of snow. And that’s what summer is all about. The absence of snow. Unless I’m eating it. In the form of ice cream.
