School starts next week for our kids. My friend and I were off on Thursday. We decided to make a trip to Wild Adventures. We had just been there two weeks ago on a Thursday.
Elayna and I made a dozen sandwiches. We packed our swimsuits and towels and sunscreen.
We all loaded up in my friend's car, along with his daughter, and drove to Georgia.
And we arrived to a scene eerily reminiscent of this one.....
It seems Wild Adventures closes during the week once the school year starts in their area.
Which I have never heard of. Living in Florida, the land of theme parks, this just doesn't happen. Some of our parks change their hours during the fall, but mid-August? Closing completely except for the weekends?
Who does that??!!
Wild Adventures in Valdosta, Georgia. That's who.
But....we made the best of it. Our plan was to spend the day at Wild Adventures, then take my friend's daughter to her Grandmother's house for the weekend. We were to meet up in St Augustine. So, we just went to St Augustine WAY earlier than planned, and spent the day there, hanging out and having fun.
The girls were great sports about it all.

We don't call this Putting the FUN in DysFUNctional for no reason!
