LAGOON AMUSEMENT PARK (end 'o summer 2008)

In late August 2008, right before school started for the kids, I took Emma and Adam to the state-famous "Lagoon Amusement Park" about 70 miles north of Provo. First, however, we stopped to visit Aunt Caren at her place of emploi, the entrance sign to which you may peruse below:
Here is Caren doin' the work thang, runnin' the show, bouncin' all interlopers who don't possess official clearance to be there, and pretty much organizing the whole office by herself. She's amazing when it comes to this stuff.

And in case you didn't realize it, this is where you came from: point #1, or Africa and thence north. Of course, some people think the world is only 6,000 years old and every scientist in the world is misguided and that this genetic map stuff is thus all wrong; those people are called "idiots," or "Sarah Palin."
After we got the office tour from Caren, we went to an early lunch at a cool place near where she works. Somewhat surprisingly, Salt Lake City has its fair share of cool places to eat. In the coolest places of all, they don't kick you out when you try to do straw tricks like Adam is below.
And from there, it was off to Lagoon! The following shots all have some of the different rides we did throughout the day and into the night, though the best ones -- the spook house rides and the wicked rollercoasters -- you can't really take pictures in. Suffice it to say it was a fun, wonderful day in all ways and a great way to end the summer for all three of us.
