Water Slide


Mom mentioned this park in the comments section of the last post.

Here is what she said.

"My favorite water slide was the one in Jeffersonville - not for the slide itself - but for a memory made there.

That is where Dad lost his mat and went running down the slide after it --- I laughed so hard I cried and was unable to talk.
I got that way every time I recounted the scene. I can still break into a giggle with just the thought of Dad out of control..... a few seconds in time - that although probably could have caused a serious injury -- it evokes such joy in my heart!

I am sick, aren't I?"

I think it was after this event that Dad sat out and took these pictures of us.



Mom sliding fast.


Me being tricky.

I noticed a can of TAB can sitting outside the guardrail in that last slide.

Nice brace face.


Backwards Brett.


Here is another water park we went to, Wet and Wild in Florida. I see Chad on a raft.

Oh great! The photos brought back yet another memory. Dad remembered this one about me. That orange suit I was wearing! I had forgotten my suit when I packed. I quick trip to the nearest K-Mart for the cheapest suit I could find - didn't turn out that great. I am thankful the photos don't reveal that the suit became see-through when it was wet! Luckily Dad noticed that right away and I was able to wrap the mat around me like a donut as I walked up the slide after the discovery. It was another one of those lessons on "you get what you pay for".

Also - Dad and I agree - the Wet and Wild was not in Florida. It too was near the triple slides. I think it was across the street. It was a different time - but the same vicinity and our first encounter with a wave pool.

Although we only have had the one trip with you guys to Holiday World a couple of years ago - it has it all and SO much fun. Our our fav now is the Lazy River!

I wondered if you were still out there Brett.
