Santa in August

We got up a bit late this morning, not a great start to our time with the in-laws! After a couple false starts, we got on the road for real… only 2 hrs later than we had thought… not too bad. With the short drive, we were here by lunch time and after grabbing lunch, in the park by 2ish.

We are in Dale, IN… the middle of a bunch of corn fields. Really… this water/amusement park, a Denny’s, a hotel and town folk are the only thing out here… that’s not a corn field. For a warm summer day, there were not very many people here…oh, yeah, it’s Friday… I bet we are swarmed tomorrow.

I am thinking about my friend, KC, today… see her daughters tried to bring her shopping for her birthday a couple of years ago…this park is called Holiday World, and it’s in Santa Clause, IN… KC loves her holidays! And it would be a great place to shop for Christmas stuff… except it’s a theme park… the rides are all named some type of 4th of July, Christmas, Halloween, or Thanksgiving kind of name. And there’s not much else here, so to be here in the off season… well, let’s just say there wasn’t much for the ladies to do.

So, KC… bring the grandkids during the summer. They would love it! And, for a theme park, they have some very cool food things… like unlimited, free soft drinks all day long. NO, really… stop laughing, ‘cuz I’m not kidding. They have Pepsi (another bonus) Oasis set all over the park. You walk in, grab a cup, ice, and drink and out the door. They’re set up like any restaurant where you can get your own drink. To top it off, even the food price is not too bad… the in-laws ate there yesterday… four adults for $20. Wow!

I will put pix up… probably after we get home ‘cuz I’m just too tired right now. I’ve got 5 people asleep in this hotel room, and I need to do the same. I’m having a senior moment… and I’m much too young for those… I know there were some great things said.. I am just not remembering them right now… Maybe tomorrow…
