My company's Lagoon day was this past weekend. Despite the fact that it was organized in the strangest fashion that I've ever seen, and despite the fact that the weather reports were calling for 50% chance of a thunderstorm, I decided to go. 

We arrived at the park just in time for the lunch part of the day. Marrdy's son took a picture of the two of us in our company t-shirts, but we both look so terrible in that picture due to lighting and angle, I decided to spare us the humiliation. My new skimmer shoes were digging at the back of my ankles so I had to hunt down some band-aids, but as soon as the band-aids were in place, all was well. 

After lunch, Sean and I took off to go on some rides. Despite being easily prone to motion sickness, I love rollercoasters.

After riding most of the roller coasters, we went walking through Pioneer Village. Despite the many, many times that I've been to Lagoon and Pioneer Village before, there were a couple of places that I had never seen before.

Shortly after this last photo was taken, it started pouring rain. Sean and I took shelter inside the "Rock Church" while we waited for the worst of it to pass. After the rain let up, we decided to take off.

I am pretty bugged though because I lost my O-gloss, again! I guess I should just stick to the cheap lip glosses because those stick around in my purse for a long time. As soon as I spend $22 on a lip gloss, it's gone forever.

That looks like so much fun! I get grossly motion sick on spinning rides (like the Zipper and the Matterhorn) but I love roller coasters. I wish that any of the places I've worked did fun stuff like that.

I updated swap info. Think you can be ready to post stuff by Thursday?


What a coincidence that while looking at your post i was listening to it's a Small World after all.. How fun!!!

Thanks for the comment .... lol.. is that really true , people on chictopia don't like cropped clothing items? How do you know?

Bless you my child for not posting the picture. I honestly look like I ran into a witch doctor who shrunk my head. I thought you looked good though!
