Photo Opp

Here is a few shots from our little trip to Lagoon... With our Utah Kids Club Card that Gator won in the diaper derby, we got into the park two for one. So we saved a grundle and couldn't pass this by. The Kids loved it. Ry was able to ride a bunch of things because she is so tall. Gator loved the kiddie rides, he even rode the "puff" ride which I wasn't and am still not sure if he should/can because of his heart, but he seemed to fine. I am not sure if he will ever be able to ride the big coasters?

I miss Lagoon!! I remember 8th grade Lagoon day, holding my "boy" friend's hand while we rode the rides.. so many memories there.

I've always wondered if the rides will really affect those with a heart condition? I think I'll ask as well. We can all compare notes.

My daughter whom has trunchus arteriosis with interupted aorta arch, rode on the puff dragon rollercoaster and a few other kind of big kid rides, and she tolerated them well. They always warn you "NO HEART CONDITIONS" blah, blah, blah, I think you have to just do what feels right. Don't push it to far, and let the kid govern the rides a little as well. Kinlee is 6 and just had her 2nd surgery in July. Marvelous doctors they have at Primarys I tell you.
