I don't know why things can't ever go normally...

.......but such is my life.

We went to Six Flags Fiesta Texas today.  It's the last week that the water park will be open for the season.  Why not, right?  Might as well get our money's worth out of that side of the park.

So, they have this meandering 'river' type thing where you hop on an inner tube and lay back while you float along.  Sounds easy enough and pretty relaxing, huh?!  Nice warm weather....not too much sun...... tra la la.

We had my kids, my sister, and my nephew (and Jesse, of course) along with us.  My nephew is 15 and is such a sweetheart.....he will do anything for me.  He said "Here, Tia....I'll hold it for you....and you hop on."

My intention was to put the inner tube behind me, hop up, lean back and off I'd go.


Oh.  Did I mention my swimsuit looks much like this one?

That being said, I held on, hopped up....and the back of my suit caught on the seam of the inner tube.

Andy, my nephew, shrieked and ran off.  Ryan started laughing.  Jesse started laughing.  I started laughing and trying to fix my swimsuit.  Who knew there would be a full moon during the middle of the afternoon?!

My only saving grace was that nobody else was around.  (Or if there was, I didn't notice.)

Now watch......I'm going to be in all my glory on somebody's vacation blog.

Eh.....what can you do except hope they black out my face.

(Six Flags' new campaign slogan:  More flags, more fun!  hahahahahahahaha)
