For our Anniversary I packed Pat's bag, made all the arrangements, and early Friday morning we were on our way to UT, just the two of us. I didn't tell him where we were going, and when we pulled in to Lagoon, he started laughing. He doesn't love rides, and gets sick easily, so we haven't been to any kind of amusement park together. But he was excited and a good sport and rode everything once.
(except the Samarai)
It was a full day of laughing as I watched him turn into his father, as he would get super nervous before each ride took off, and then laugh his head off as soon as it started. We spent a big chunk of the day at Lagoon-A-Beach.
Saturday I took Pat to see Batman, hit up a couple of stores, mainly to find Ledger some shoes, grabbed lunch and decided we wanted to go home to this little guy.
(We take the Olympics seriously in our house)
It was fun being able to surprise Pat for once, and left both of us excited for Ledger to grow up, so I will have a riding buddy for all the big rides and Pat can watch from the ground.
