"Because there's six flags on the sign"

And that's why it's called Six Flags, Shawners says.

We've had the awesome opportunity to go there two. weekends. in. a. row. - for less than the cost of one person per time! Last weekend we had three free tickets and only had to pay for Brando's ticket. The four of us went and enjoyed the kiddie rides and the water park with the boys. THIS weekend friends of ours were going and wanted us to come with. Saturday night I discovered we could go for $10/person as a friend with their season passes. Awesome.

So yesterday we went and this time rode the coasters. There were three of us couples - two of us were married and the other are boyfriend and girlfriend, our boys, and one of the couples little toddler girl. So we all took turns watching the kids and rode Tony Hawk's Big Spin, The Poltergeist, Superman, and the big water slides in the water park. It's been years since I rode a rollercoaster - Aime said I whimpered on the Superman, Rian just laughed at me on the Tony Hawk's Big Spin, and Brando laughed at me on the Poltergeist (0-60 in a few seconds) with my alternate screaming and laughing. I'm pretty sure my throat was soar after that one.

Justinbustin went on his first roller coaster and big water slide ever yesterday! I asked him how he liked it and he says, "Fun and scary." He went on one waterslide, loved it, and then went on the The Twister waterslide and screamed the whole time. He totally went on a different waterslide afterwards though. I am so proud of him.

I've never had so much fun with two couples in my life! One of the couples is a couple who have been coming over the past few weekends... at 11pm at night and staying until 3am or 5am because well, that's when we have time to hang out these days : ) . And they rock. The other couple we actually met the couple who has been coming over through and were clients of Brando's a year ago. This is the second time we've been able to hang out with them because they live way down south, and it was so much fun. We introduced them to our favorite, Chipotle, after the park, and Chipotle's fabulous $3 margaritas, and had a great time at dinner. Brando was singing Adam Sandler's first CD "Mop, mop, mop all day long. Mop, mop, mop while I sing this song." in the voice Adam sings it in, and Aime says, "A year ago when we met Brando I never imagined I'd be sitting here listening him to sing a song in that voice. He was so professional." Brando says we all have the different hats we wear.

I had so much fun! Now with today off I'm kicking back with the kids and finishing up studying for my final exam on Wednesday. Unfortunately I skipped out on studying with the group yesterday when I went to Six Flags, and they weren't able to meet in the evening. So I'll go over to one of the girls house today and go over the review and homework with her and that'll be good. Tomorrow I go back to work. Brando went back to work today and I so still haven't found a babysitter for Tuesday and Thursday. My Starbucks girl is busy with company this week and I'm so screwed if I don't start making some phone calls!! Ahhh!!! I think figuring out somebody to babysit is the hardest part of working!
