my family surprised me to go to six flags!! haahhah…
so yesterday my cousin, robin, and jake & i all met up at the spectrum to just hang out. we were supposed to go to the beach but earlier in the week i had to have a last minute doctors appointment which i couldn’t avoid. robin suggested that i meet her at the spectrum afterwards instead. we walked around, shopped a bit, and talked of course. =) she was getting ready for her trip to north carolina the next day to see her man. awww.
we hit up all kinds of stores and jake actually let’s me do a lil’ shopping as well. nothing big..just a few accessories from h&m and for love. he even bought some stuff. while robin and i were in the girly stores jake went to visit his favorite store: the apple store.
when we go there to meet him he is in awe of the iPad. he has been talking about it since it came out. at first he would deny that he wanted one but as time passed and as he played with the iPad at store more, i think he fell in love. he wouldn’t drop it. i would always tease him when he asked me if we should get one….but every time we asked if they had any available they were always sold out. so here he was at the store playing with the iPad and wishing he had one but he just can’t seem to get his hands on one. darn.
anyway, we have dinner at subway. robin tells me her flight got moved up and we should go to george’s (awesome breakfast burrito place!) for an early breakfast with the cousins. i’m down! then she says we can just hang out afterwards before her flight.
so today, jake and i wake up super early to pick robin up and meet at dino & celines’ place so we can go have breakfast. as we’re getting ready jake suggests that we should go to the beach after we finish hanging out with the cousins. i say ok and get ready for a day at the beach…swimsuit underneath, shorts, sandals, sunblock, and even a frisbee & dog toys.
we have breakfast, then jake says he needs to go to walmart to buy chocolate. by this time i’m already suspecting something like we’re all going to the beach for a fun filled day. we get to walmart and just before we go in everyone is huddle around me and staring at me like there was going to be an intervention. wtf? all of a sudden celine says she won tickets to go to six flags. i’m shocked and confused and surprised. earlier in the month i mentioned going to six flags for my bday but we never really talked about it again. i just figured we could do something else. so when they said we were going to six flags today i was really shocked. at the same time i was ecstatic cuz i have been wanting to go back for so long!! the reason we were at walmart was because jake didn’t pack my walking shoes, and because he wore jeans on a super hot day….especially when you’re going to a theme park. hahah… jake…. you’re funny.
so now i’m super excited and i just wanna go on every single ride twice and just feel like a kid again. happy. our first ride was X2. it was sooooo friggin fun!! it was actually a bit scary just cuz i’ve never been on it and i didn’t know what to expect. but i loved it!! if you havent been on it before imagine sitting down after being strapped up and then your legs get pulled under you and turns your body so that it looks like you’re in doggy style position. i’m sure the guys love this. heheheh. riding the rollercoaster like this is so different from just sitting down. so unexpected and so so fun!
the next ride was tatsu….also very fun.
the next ride was viper. i didn’t like this ride that much. only because the shoulder strap thing came up to my ears and was super hard so that every time we turned on the rollercoaster my head banged left and right and my earrings were stabbing me. so much that it caused me to bleed. it would’ve been a fun ride if i just wore different earrings. by this time dogz had joined us and this was his first ride. he came from the doctors because of a problem with his heart. i hope he is fine now.
the next ride was goliath. i’ve ridden this ride before and i wasn’t the least bit impressed. they made such a big deal over this ride that when i finally rode it the last time i was at six flags, it was a fail.. it wasn’t bad, it just wasn’t scary enough or fun enough overall. i decided to give it another chance and rode it. it actually wasn’t bad this time but it still isn’t my favorite. dogz and robin sat this on out. i think the steep drop was too much for them. =P
the last ride was batman. we waited about an hour and a half to two hours to get on this ride. we finally reached the end and as soon as we’re sitting down strapped up, something goes wrong. oh shit. robin starts freaking out that she wants to get off the ride. the mechanic wont let us off yet and it wasn’t until 5-10 minutes of waiting we had a choice to stay on or get off. we got off. there’s no point in risking our lives for a little fun. it reminded us of final destination 3. eek. even though i never heard of anything bad happening after we got off, i’m still glad we didn’t risk it. who knows?
so we just had a few hours to kill before leaving and we decided to play carnival games! dogz, jake, and dino played a basketball game. dogz was the only one to make a shot. he won a lakers basketball. afterwards, me, robin, celine, and dino played the horserace game where you throw balls into slots. robin won first place and won a monkey, i won second place and won a chicken little, celine was third and won doggy ears. poor dino. better luck next time? then the guys decide to play a ball throwing game where they break a glass plate. dogs won again!! he was on a streak! we were saying he should go play the lottery! dino had a funny first throw which i got on video! jake was pretty bad as well.. hehehe. =P overall it was a fun, fun day and i was super happy to spend it with my favorite people!! sadly, it was the end of the night and we had to drop robin off at the airport where she gets to go on vacation and we have to go back to reality. hahah… lucky.
thanks everybody for making my bday special and fun and wonderful! i love you all!
