Fun at Blue Bayou

A couple of weeks ago we went to Blue Bayou in Baton Rouge, La. My sister and her family live in Kentwood, La. We decided to go down to their house and spend the night and get up really early and go before the crowd got there. This is Garrett (my little boy) and Chase, my sister's little boy. (They are exactly 3 weeks apart.) They ended up sleeping in the den...what little sleep they got. lol They stayed up half the night! They love spending time together. It's hard to believe that they are already 9 years old.

They love making 'silly' faces.




This is one of the big water slides...one that I DID NOT get on. Way too scary. I did go down a couple though. We stayed at the water park side all day and went to the amusement park later that afternoon.



Garrett sliding down the big slides. He had a blast! You see that black and white water slide to the left? They talked me into riding it. NEVER AGAIN! lol




Stevie riding the bumper cars.





Garrett loved this one too. He kept slamming into me!






Me and my little man on the swings. I wasn't going to put any pictures of me...you know...no make up. lol But Garrett said that he wanted this one on here. It had been years since I'd gotten on the swings. It was fun.







He started getting tired so he decided to ride the carousel to rest. He picked the one with roses for me. I didn't tell him to either. That was so sweet. He knows that I love roses.








Stevie and his daughter Hailey. Can you tell that she got a 'little' sun? This was taken on the Ferris wheel and I was so nervous taking this picture because I don't like heights at all.









That was a huge Ferris wheel.










Isn't this pretty? The little train depot. I loved it.











It looks so old and Victorian. I love the little cars too.












We were on the train when I took these.













Carousel in the background. I love the light posts.














Ferris wheel at night.




Me and Hailey after a long day. We had a blast. We were waiting here for the light show and I just had to rest a little. All that playing wore me out. Hope y'all enjoyed the pictures. We are going again before the summer is over.

That looked like SO much fun! I don't mind water slides as long as it's not too deep at the end...I sink much better than I float! :)
I think the carousel is more my speed! lol I do like ferris wheels though, I have to admit that...and I'm not crazy about heights either. Just something about being so high up in the air and being able to see it all. :)
You really should try the freezer jam recipe! It is SO SO easy, I wish I had done it years ago. (but then I'd weigh more than I already do! lol) :) I smile every time I open my freezer and see my pretty little jars all in a row in the door with my jam just waiting for me! :-)
Hope you have a great "rest of the week"! Talk to you later!
Blessings

It looks like lots of fun, but tiring too! I remember being a kid and going to these kinds of amusement parks. They hold many happy memories. I'm sure your son will always remember them too!

We use to live near there. We drove by it all the time on the way to the outlets in Gonzales. Glad you had such a great trip!

Now this wore me out just looking at it!! I don't know if I could spend the whole day at a water place and then do the amusements...there is something about sun and water that tires me---a nice relaxing tiring, however.

It looks like you all had such a fun family time!

We did have a blast. Im so glad we got the chance to spend some time together. We made a day of it:)
