Ok I thought I would blog about our day at the water park and slides with my brother and his family. The 1st one I went down was a blast. So I thought I would be brave and do more of the bigger ones. This is a picture of the 1st one I did. See ALL those stairs I climbed up? The end of the slide is at the back of this picture but you get the idea. It was a big one. I screamed the whole way down from excitement.
Then I went to slide number 2. It was a double tube ride slide so I thought I would be protected since my hubby was going to be on the tube with me. So I climbed on the front of the double tube and hubby got on behind me. Then we were off. The first turn was wicked and I screamed alright and then we rounded the 2nd curve. And that's when it happened!
Yep The tube went way up high on the side of the slide and I fell on hit the side of my head smack dab on the slide. Hubby fell off too but the slide was so steep that the water just pushed me down on my stomach feet first with the tube on top of my head. I was knocked out from the blow and as I went sliding down this big slide all I remember was the big splash at the bottom of the pool. I couldn't stand up or swim and Clay came splashing down right behind me so he tried to pull me out of the deep pool of water. He grabbed me and drug me to the edge where I could stand. I fell several more times back in the water as he tried to rescue me. The stupid life guards just stood there doing NOTHING! The spectators at the side of the pool were very concerned and checked to see if I had a concussion by checking my eyes.
My sister-in-law was watching for us to come down the slide and she witnessed this girl coming out and said "I hope that's not Lesia", then as I hit the water and she saw Clay grabbing me she said "Holy Crap, it is Lesia" And she ran to the side of the pool to help. LOL This is the tunnel that I came out feet first with the tube on my head. It doesn't look that big but believe me it was.
Needless to say that ended my excitement at the slide rides. So I went and hung out at the wave pool where I was able to just rock in the waves.Even with all this drama I had a blast and can't wait for the bump on my head to go away so I can get back on the slides again. Or better yet I am planning a jet skiing trip in a few weeks.
Never a dull moment in my fun filled life.
Clay had the right idea just chilling at the side of the pool.
