They May Be Twins But They Really Are Different

Angie Seaman is hosting a Foto Find Friday blog hop today and this week's theme is water. I've done a lot of posts related to water recently, so I spent some time searching for photos that you have never seen before.

Earlier this summer, a group of us took 14 kids to a water park while we were in Charleston, SC. I am not a huge fan of water parks (except for Great Wolf Lodge), but the kids absolutely love them. Their favorite activity was the wave pool--for 15 minutes the water is calm and everyone floats around in these tubes. Then the waves start and they don't stop for at least 5 minutes. This is part of our group here.

The wave pool is always packed (which totally wigs me out) and there are bodies everywhere.

Once the waves start, people are flying off the tubes, getting knocked over and nearly drowning. It's great fun.

As you can see, Kellen absolutely loved it.

The rougher the better. He has always been a daredevil.

Ammy, on the other hand, was not too sure about the waves.

After getting bounced around one too many a time she spent the rest of the time screaming and crying to get out.

Turns out she's a wimp like her mother!

I'm with you...those wave pools FREAK ME OUT!! Actually, I've discovered that most water related activities involving my children send me a little over the edge.

This past weekend we were at the lake with my parents who happen to own a boat. Three of my four ended up tubbing...BY THEMSELVES. I WAS A COMPLETE WRECK!! But they loved it...go figure!!

So glad I found your blog on Angie's blog hop!! I love/relate to your title! HeeHee

I love tubing and wave pools but when it is too crowded it's a little scary!

Ah, yes....that would freak me out being around all those people.

I would be hanging with the other wimps. I am not ashamed either! lol

Thanks for sharing. Can't wait to see more in the weeks ahead. So fun!
