2nd Annual Family Fun Day 2016

Today was John's work's Annual Family Fun Day. Once again, it was at the local Amusement Park but they had 2 semi-fails: 1) they waited too late to rent the park, so Sunday was the only day available and 2) there was a chance of rain all. day. long.

The 2nd fail ended up working in our favor; with the chance of rain, we pretty much had the entire park to ourselves! No wait times for ANY rides and we were able to ride a few of them several times.

Just like last year, they provided the tickets, a goody bag (with shirt, water bottle and pad and pen) and lunch tickets. They also had really awesome giveaways, but all John won this year was a lousy t-shirt. LOL

And just like last year, we spent the biggest majority of the time at the Water Park, however, with the threat of rain and lack of people, we were actually able to ride the huge water slides this time. Unfortunately, with it being a Water Park and my phone NOT being waterproof, no pictures :-(

So, here's a few boring pictures of a few rides instead LOL

They've decided to do this every year and I couldn't be more excited! I LOVE amusement parks and love them even more when we don't have to pay to go! Haha

P.S. Today is also John's birthday. I told him I couldn't have planned a better "party" for him if I tried and to thank his work for "throwing him" an awesome birthday bash. ROFL

1. GENERAL CONFORMATION (a) GENERAL APPEARANCE. The Great Dane combines in its distinguished appearance dignity, strength and elegance with great size and a powerful, well-formed, smoothly muscled body. He is one of the giant breeds, but is unique in that his general conformation must be so well balanced that he never appears clumsy and is always a unit--the Apollo of dogs. He must be spirited and courageous--never timid. He is friendly and dependable. This physical and mental combination is the characteristic which gives the Great Dane the majesty possessed by no other breed. It is particularly true of this breed that there is an impression of great masculinity in dogs as compared to an impression of great femininity in bitches. The male should appear more massive t…

(Typed for easy reading below each picture which has made this post EXTREMELY long. Also, you *should* be able to click on the pictures to enlarge, but sadly still not enough to read the charts.)
