Schlitterbahn - Galveston

Since Will has been on call for 5 weekends in a row and we were out of town for so long, we decided to spend the day at Schlitterbahn Water Park in Galveston. It wasn't nearly as crowded as we expected, but there was still sufficient people-watching to be had. The lines were bearable and we all had a great time.

O & Mac were so excited they couldn't even wait for a big ride, they had to jump on the kiddie slide first. Still, it did not disappoint.
Will & Olivia taking a lunch break.
McIver getting the 10 second boogie-boarding tutorial. He has a BLAST!! His ride lasted longer than most of the grown-ups we saw. A full set of bleachers and everyone in line were cheering and clapping for him.
He had a great run - until the end, when his board finally flipped out from under him, he went spinning around and lost his pants! I worried that he would panic from getting so turned around, but the cheers from the crowd won him over. He pulled up his pants and began telling everyone: You've never seen a surfer as good as me!
Not to be outdone by his 4 year old, Will gave it the old college-try....
Now that is one tired kid!
