I spent the week in Salt Lake for work, and am going down to California to visit my boys for the weekend. It means 6 days in hotel rooms, but it's a fun adventure.
My gf is coming down to Cali with me, and joined me in Salt Lake Friday. We decided to go to Utah's 125 year old Amusement Park, The Lagoon.
The Lagoon was a fun trip, but not for the conventional "Disneyland-esque" ways. For example, Lagoon has rollercoasters, and Disneyland does not.
In fact, one of Lagoon's rollercoasters is called... wait for it... Roller Coaster.
There were other roller coasters, as well as a good handful of water rides. Within hours, we were soaked and smiling.
Some of the other attractions at Lagoon were the people. It was almost more fun to people-watch than to ride the rides.
Mormons were everywhere and easy to spot. Even with a water park, you'd see 'modest' girls wearing a tanktop with a t-shirt underneath. Men had polos on, side-parted hair, and perfect posture.
If they were exiting from a coaster screaming "Gosh that was a scary ride!" you knew what you were dealing with.
Imagine 11-12 year old girls wearing tight skimpty booty shorts, a cutoff button-down tshirt, with the middle as open as possible. There was a pair walking around with bling-ish "Babydoll" necklaces and showing as much skin as possible. One had on a polkadot bikini top that at least covered her boobs up. The other (poor thing hadn't 'blossomed' yet...) had on ahalf-sheer bikini top.
My gf wanted to know what their necklaces said, so I tried to peek while being sly. They were hard to read, but I eventually got "Babydoll" from the cheap rhinestones. The bad part was I also inadvertently saw preteen nipple because of the sheer bikini top.
I still feel dirty. I've showered 3 times and my skin is raw.... WHY CAN'T I GET CLEAN???
Overall it was a fun trip, but I'm looking more forward to hanging with my boys this weekend. Maybe I'll take them to Knott's Berry Farm, and show them a REAL amusement park???
