"Jack, are you going outside in that?"
"Yea, it is ok mom. Nothing is getting wet."
That is because you have nothing on.
"Boys, it is time to come in."
Sam: "I think that is a good call, mom."

In Madison, the 4 of us stopped into 5 Guys (excellent burgers!!) for lunch. Jason ordered 2 large fries...so we could split them between the 4 of us. Sam is showing what 2 large fries looks like at 5 guys...just a brown paper bag FULL of FRIES!!!

There were Go-Karts at our hotel, so of course we had to head over to check them out. Sam was so excited, because he could drive one all by himself!!
I drove with Jack, who was not to happy about the Go-Karts, because he couldn't drive by himself. He wouldn't smile for a picture...big pouter!! They were fun, but I wasn't to hip on going in so many circles and some punk kid kept hitting my car which was clearly against the rules we were told at the beginning.
Sam loved it so much, that he wanted to go one more time before we left. So, on our last night, Sam primped up ("Mom, it is our last night here and I would like to look nice"..ok Rico Swavay!) and we headed to the track. Sam got right in his go-kart and took off. Unfortunately, after the first lap, there was a cloud burst and it started to POUR!! I thought for sure that they would have to take the cars off the track...water and oily streets do not mix and are very slick...and i really didn't know how much traction was left on thyose wheels!! But, they did not pull off the cars. Sam was way in the back and I really thought he was having car problems...but then he got off...
Poor Sam was SO mud splattered. His car wasn't having problems, he was trying to hang back so he wouldn't get more mud on himself!! When I saw him, I started to laugh...thank goodness he is so laid back!! So much for primping, Rico!!

Our last stop was the carousel. Jack jumped on a horse (i think) and Sam rode the wild rabbit.
These "animals" are pretty high and this wild five year old boy was trying to mount the giraffe beside Sam. (there had to be at least 40 other empty animals on the ride, but wild boy chose the one directly by Sam) The kid would only get on so far and then he would actually flop off and land on the floor of the carousel (due to the giraffe being so tall!) At first it scared me, but, being so smart the wild boy did it about three more times. Sam and I just stared at him...his mom was aways behind us, yelling, "John, be careful!" "John, be careful!!" He was fine and finally did get himself on the giraffe and as soon as the ride began, what do you think that kid started doing...yep, trying to jump off the giraffe and of course his mom was yelling at him again...we only rode one time. It was a good last day of summer.

...to another water park...
...to another water park. What was the best, was that all these parks were right at our hotel. We were always in walking distance to our room...that rocked!!
