50 Days of Summer: Day 25

Y'all...it's July. 
How can that be? 
We are half way through our 50 Days of Summer already. 

We kicked July off by heading to Six Flags. The girls each earned a free ticket by doing the Six Flags reading program at school. They log 360 minutes of reading. The girls enjoy reading (for the most part) and I love free tickets so it works pretty perfect. I found a coupon code online that got Bryan and I tickets for $20.00 each so we didn't have to spend much for a day at Six Flags. We picked a great day to go. The park was not very crowded at all and the weather was pretty mild considering it's July in Georgia. We had a light rain shower that lasted less than the time it took us to eat an ice cream so we really lucked out. 

We had a great time and enjoyed our time together, but I just have to get this off my chest. Six Flags is NO Disney, which I knew, but still...they aren't even on the same playing field. Yes, their rides are very thrilling, but overall there is no wow factor at Six Flags. The place is dingy, run down and the service is just blah, but we did have fun so I don't want to come across as a Debbie Downer. I am glad we didn't have to pay full price because it would have been a huge disappointment. 

Disney has spoiled us. 

The girls had fun riding a few things they had never been on before. Sydney is tall enough to ride everything, but Goliath so she got on a few more rides than she did last year. Jordyn got to try a few new rides as well, but she was so bummed that she couldn't ride Mind Bender because it was closed.

A few pictures we took on our phones. We traveled light and didn't bring one bag into the park. Just phones, germ-x and lip balm. 

 Dare Devil Dive. This was our longest wait and totally worth it. 

 Waiting in line for Batman! 
She got to ride two times in a row since we did a rider swap. 

 Mine Train.
 See ya next year Six Flags...maybe...
