Kevin and Greg were waking back in the room and before long we were off
to spend the day at Six Flags Over Texas.
It was a nice walk over to the park. I had to explain what fire ants
were to Greg and Kevin so they wouldn't step in the myriad of nests on the
way and end up with their lower extremities feeling like they're burning
from being bit. Fire ants are definitely one of the things that I
don't miss about living in Texas.
Like most amusement parks Six Flags Over Texas opens their gates a little
early and then corrals everyone in the front of the park before they drop
the rope at opening time letting us all dash off to the rides. Since
we had nothing better to do we headed into the stores to browse around and
goof off. Here's Greg with his riding companion "Igor Rider".
