Six Flags with Sixth Graders

Alyssa's school went to Six Flags a couple of weeks ago, and I went along as a chaperone.

Because of Alyssa's special needs, and the large number of parent volunteers that went, we were a group of two.

We hooked up with a couple of other groups for most of the day.

Alyssa would not go get her picture taken with Tweety Bird and Daffy Duck.

She barely went over with Bugs Bunny.

They rode on the teacup ride.

And the Bucking Bronco ride.

And the Six Shooter swings. Shown in this picture are Alyssa, Alyssa, and Elissa. Yeah, it was fun keeping everyone straight.

The others all rode the recently rebuilt Texas Giant. During that half-hour, though, I sat in the train station with Alyssa laying over on my lap, asleep.

She wouldn't ride any of the big roller coasters or the Superman or Batman, but she did want her picture taken with the Batmobile.

I think I'll set one of my books at Six Flags. That way I can get a season pass, go back over and over again, and call it research.
