Six Flags Over Georgia

We had a great time at Six Flags today! It was such a strange layout compared to other parks I've been to. It had lots of small pathways going every which way, LOTS of hills, and every so often, poof, there's a ride, and it was hard to tell what ride was where for sure. But it was still lots of fun!

Olivia and I love rollercoasters! We rode an incredibly twisty and loopy one first, and then a wooden one later which we rode twice. There were hardly any, if any, lines!

Braeden is into "meeting friends" and becoming "best friends" with them, it's so cute. He ended up riding one ride with the little boy on his left in this photo. This ride was next in the kid area, and he just plopped himself down between these two, it was so funny!

This is the Wheelie. Not sure what it's called elsewhere, I know we have one at Great America but I have NEVER wanted to ride it!!! It goes in circles which I can't do, then stands up and goes upside down, so crazy! But I also knew that now that Olivia was big enough, she would LOVE it!!! So she went on it and smiled all the way! :) She wanted to keep going, but we moved on! Mom couldn't stand watching again! :)

The kids got to choose one snack to buy, we brought the rest with us, and the choice of the day... Dippin Dots! That was a temptation for me, I LOVE them! :)
Had a great day, only one or two small melt downs. :)

For dinner we bought a whole pizza from Papa John's - much cheaper than a few small meals. I thought there was no way we'd use even half, but if you can believe it, Olivia and Braeden EACH ate THREE of these pieces!!! I could NOT believe it! Grandma had one, and Liam had half of one.
And here was MY dinner! :)
I had had a banana earlier, and a Clif bar in between. I didn't feel hungry at all, and ate a small dinner when we got back. :)

Very fun!!! :)

About Me

I am a single mom to four amazing kids; each of whom just happen to have been adopted. The first three were adopted through foster care, and we just completed an international adoption from Haiti. Our family has grown through adoption and I am all the more blessed to know each of my children. I worship a mighty God, teach Special Ed, love bargains, and am inspired by Pinterest... come along with us for the ride!

What you should know about HIV

-HIV can NOT be spread through casual/household contact. HIV is not spread through hugging, kissing, shaking hands, sharing toys, sneezing, coughing, sharing food, sharing drinks, bathing, swimming or any other casual way. It has been proven that HIV and AIDS can only be spread through sexual contact, birth, breastfeeding and blood to blood contact (such as sharing needles). - HIV is now considered a chronic but manageable disease. With treatment, people who are HIV+ can live indefinitely without developing AIDS and can live long and full lives. - People who are HIV+ deserve to be treated with love, respect, support and acceptance as all people do. Additional information on transmission of HIV can be found on the Center for Disease Control website: http://www.cdc.gov/hiv/resources

Little Did I Know

Little did I know that the road would be so rocky
Little did I know that the trip would take so long
Little did I know that my heart could hurt so much
Little did I know that God is never wrong

Little did I know that love could be so powerful
Little did I know that a dream so far could go
Little did I know that God would place the right ones
Little did I know that my heart, so large, could grow

Little did I know that a dream has it’s own timing
Little did I know that this day would finally come
Little did I know that four souls would be sent to guide me
Little did I know that they would choose to call me mom

But God knew all along and He had a plan to follow
God knew all along that my dream would soon come true
God knew all along that we five should be together
God knew all along that I’d share it all with you
