Day One Hundred and Seventy-eight (Night)

Continued from other post…

So the ride Kristyn decided she would go on was the swings and that’s cool because we both like that a lot. THE PROBLEM was that my ass was way too big for the swing. I couldn’t sit flat down in the swing! This freaked me out because I have ridden those swings before with no problem. Momma needs to figure out something to do with her ass situation STAT.

After that delightful fiasco, we went on the below ride which is called “Montezuma’s Revenge”.  This is where we saw OctoMom last time we were here in 2009.

20110626-062433.jpg

While walking through the queue to the line, three boys just totally cut us off on line.  I got mad and was like, “So you’re really going to cut us off?”  And the one kid laughed and was like “Yeah I guess so.”  And I couldn’t even stop myself from saying, “Well you should be ashamed of yourselves.”  And the kid kind of laughed and his friends turned around.  And I was like “I’m not kidding.  You really ought to be ashamed of yourselves.  There’s three of you and two of us and we’re girls to boot.”  They really didn’t say anything or like go back behind us but they were REAL QUIET the whole time standing on line.  It was like cutting someone off to get to a red light.  The three of us literally cut us in line but got directly in front of us only for us to wait in line TOGETHER for like fifteen minutes.  Idiots haha.  Anyway here we are on that line haha. Der.  Krissy looks cute though.

This is a big blow-up Snoopy.  It’s actually one of those bouncy-castle thingmies.

20110626-062528.jpg

 

And here’s Snoopy Camping.

20110626-062541.jpg

And I spose Linus is landing on the moon?

20110626-062553.jpg

And this is a waterfall lit up blue.

20110626-062608.jpg

And you can walk over a little rope bridge into a cave and get behind the waterfall.  Here is Krissy trying to make a shadow haha.

20110626-062620.jpg

Krissy’s grill again. This picture is out of sequence but I don’t know where else it goes so let’s just keep it here, alright with you?

20110626-062804.jpg

This picture was taken walking out of the cave.  We wanted to get the lights and the lit up tree.  Cute picture.

20110626-064752.jpg

Here I am looking decidedly less cute and a little more worse for the wear haha.

20110626-064800.jpg

Here is Schroeder doing his do.  We went into the store that this is behind and found out that everything was lit up because they it was actually like a weird event.  You could buy glasses for a bean that showed all the lights as hearts, stars or snowflakes.  Only the kiddie section was lit up (which is what we were in above).  I got hearts and Kristyn got stars but the stars sucked so we switched it out for hearts later on.

20110626-064818.jpg

Once we realized that we were SUPPOSED to be looking at the lights with the glasses on, we wandered back into the kiddie world.  Kristyn still had her star glasses on at this point so it wasn’t as awesome for her as it was for me with the hearts but that was okay because we ended up walking through this land like three more times and Kristyn had hearts for at least two of the three times haha.  For some reason the regular camera on my phone quit working.  I’d been using that one because it takes up less battery than Hipstamatic but that camera was frozen so from here on out I just took Hipstamatic ones, battery be damned!  Here’s Snoopy again.

20110626-064910.jpg

Here’s Kristyn with her glasses on in kiddie lit up world.

20110626-064920.jpg

Here is a weird picture of me with my glasses on.  Turned out cool right?

20110626-064933.jpg

And I love this picture of both of us with our glasses on although my double chin is edging Kristyn out of the photo.

20110626-064943.jpg

This was a SUPER ANNOYING gigantic cellie in the middle of lighted kiddie world.  Lighted kiddie world or (Camp Snoopy as I spose it’s really called) was HELLA CHAOTIC.  That stupid cellie was literally ringing off the hook.  And then there was the Peanuts gang song but a weird version of it and then some really sinister music.

20110626-064955.jpg

Lucy’s grill.

20110626-065009.jpg

This is a picture I tried to take of the swings through the lens of my heart glasses. If you look closely you can see the hearts.  It looks cooler with the glasses on.

20110626-065110.jpg

And here’s another heart one.  We didn’t take one with the stars I don’t think.

20110626-065119.jpg

Sally’s head!

20110626-065130.jpg

Kristyn in her glasses.  Cute picture.

20110626-065222.jpg

Snoopy camping again. I just thought it was cute. Sue me.

20110626-065234.jpg

This was the land.  This picture doesn’t do it justice.  It was REALLY COOL.

20110626-065246.jpg

Another lit up area and a roller coaster.

20110626-065257.jpg

Kristyn in front of a lit up area with her glasses on.  Not everyone knew about the glasses though so I kept hearing people say stuff about our 3D glasses haha.

20110626-065310.jpg

After that we were gonna go on a roller coaster called the Ghost Rider but it was a 45 minute wait. No way.  We decided to finally get our funnel cake and go home.  We walked all the way around the park again and even though it was like 9:45 (and the park closed at 11), all the food stands had closed.  We had to go to one right in the front of the park to get this.  That’s boysenberry topping.  This tasted like nothing.

20110626-065332.jpg

Here’s Kristyn “enjoying it”.  Haha.  We threw like half of this out (more probably).  Yeah we didn’t go on any rides other than those two.  Mostly we just wandered around like weirdos looking at lights and taking pictures.  It was fun though.  We realized we aren’t into rides anymore on this trip haha.

20110626-065345.jpg

We were SO TIRED when we got home that we went straight to bed. Even though we didn’t go on any rides really, this was a GREAT day. *HUGHUGHUG Kristyn!* Thank you for making it happen!

Day One Hundred and Seventy-eight (Day)

We decided to go to Knott’s Berry Farm yesterday. We figured that we could go to Universal with my Mom and this way we could go to Knott’s Water Park. We got up and were out of the house by about 10am. I’d wanted to leave earlier but we had a problem with our power. I guess the whole block went out. I called LADWP and put in a complaint and they called to say it was fixed later on in the day. At first we weren’t sure if it was just us or not. It went out at like 9am so we really couldn’t ask our neighbors. We knew we’d paid our bill but double checked it just to make sure it went through (paranoid). We flipped the breakers too, nothing. Finally I saw one of our next-door neighbors outside and she said hers was off too so that gave us the A-OK to leave.

20110626-060433.jpg

We had to go to Ralph’s to buy the tickets and my allergies were starting to bother me so we bought some nasal spray at CVS.

20110626-061405.jpg

Here I am fresh faced and ready to g-o.

20110626-061446.jpg

Here’s Kristyn talking to her Momma on the horn on the way to Knott’s.

20110626-061459.jpg

This was right after we got there at the entrance.  Technically you are forbidden to take pictures here for some reason but I am bad to the bone.

20110626-061514.jpg

 

 

I couldn’t take any pictures in the Water Park because I don’t have a water-proof camera (yet) so you’ll just have to believe me when I say we had the most fun all day at the water park.  Mainly we were lazy.  We went in and went straight into the Wave Pool.  The water was SO nice and warm.  Kristyn hates cold water and she got right into this water. Sure we almost drowned but it was a fun drowning.  The wave pool was so crowded and chaotic that we felt like we were in Titanic.  (More fun than it sounds.)  After that, we went around the lazy river TWICE.  We just laid on the tubes and went around, it was so nice.  After that we had a powerful hunger so we ate shitty pizza and fries at their overpriced concession stand.  There was this one slide that Kristyn was DYING go on. There was a covered tube slide that slid down into this HUGE pink and purple funnel and you slide up and down the walls of said funnel.  Up to four people can ride it at one time on a tube.  We had a two-seater tube and I am here to say that that was the most horrifying water slide I have ever been on. The second we got into the tube, it flipped around so that I was backwards.  But the guy hadn’t really given me the time to fully get into the tube properly.  I think I was supposed to be laying down moreso but I was kind of sitting up so my back caught the wind and I was like lifted up out of my seat a few times.  When we got into the funnel, the tube flipped around again and when we went up the VERY HIGH wall, I was on top.  We went so high up that I almost fell forward out of the tube. I am never scared on rides like that but this really scared me.  I was shaking when we got off of it. We were going to go on something else but I was like, “Do you mind if we just go into the pool again for a while or something just so I can calm down and get myself wet again?”  Kristyn agreed and off to the wave pool we went again.  We were having such a good time in there that we decided we didn’t want to do anything else haha.  That slide as literally the ONLY slide we went on and the rest of the time we spent flopping around in the wave pool haha.  After that Kristyn decided she wanted a hot shower and to be dry so we got everything out of our locker and hit the showers.  We were at the water park for about four hours though so that was a pretty decent amount of time.

After we showered, we went back to the car to put on our makeup and get ready.  We’d put on dry clothes in the water park’s changing area but we needed to put on our sneakers and do our hairs, etc.  We talked to my Mom on the phone and I tried to fix my allergies.  OMG my allergies were KILLING me all day long, it was bananas.

Anyway, here is Kristyn de-hairing her clothes.

 

20110626-061528.jpg

 

And here I am, clean, dry and surprisingly lucid-looking.  Believe me I was not.  My allergies were carazy.

20110626-061540.jpg

Here’s Kristyn wandering back to the car because she forgot somefing.

20110626-061554.jpg

These chickens were outside Knott’s Berry Farms just SCREAMING trying to get in that gate.  I felt bad for them but also found them to be hilarious.  There are a LOT more chickens or rooster friends or whatever behind that gate.

20110626-061608.jpg

Knott’s Berry Farm!

20110626-061631.jpg

This was just the sign outside of Lucy’s restaurant haha.

20110626-061801.jpg

And I just took this because I love Sally.

Some dancers  in Fiesta World or something.  They were good.

Here’s Kristyn flirting with las damas.

20110626-064646.jpg

We were DYING to eat something.  They had no veggie options anywhere.  The Mexican food in the above-world looked kind of promising but we ultimately decided to push on.

I took a picture of this roller coaster just because I liked the way it looked in shadow.

20110626-061932.jpg

We decided on Johnny Rocket’s.  Kristyn (or I) would not normally be caught dead in Johnny Rocket’s just because we really don’t like the food much.  I will eat it but I’m never thrilled but to Kristyn, Johnny Rocket’s is on the “Hell to the no” list and she looks at me like I’ve really hurt her feelings whenever I suggest it (when we’re somewhere and it’s the only convenient option).  BUT we know they have a veggie burger so we decided to go there.  We were also SO THIRSTY.  Here’s Kristyn satisfied to finally be taking a load off and at our final eating destination.

20110626-061946.jpg

Here I am blurry and crazy.  The blurriness is apt for my mental state in this picture. I felt blurry.  God I have a serial killer face.  Why doesn’t anyone ever tell me I have crazy eyes?

20110626-061959.jpg

After we dined (and yes it was sort of gross), we wandered, bloated, out into the night.  I saw this dude staring daggers at me and needed a picture.

20110626-062047.jpg

I asked Kristyn if she wanted to go on this roller coaster or the one above and she firmly said “NO!”

20110626-062128.jpg

This one I didn’t even want to go on.  I went on it in Wildwood, NJ and once was enough.

20110626-062151.jpg

To be continued yo.
