Happy Friday Lovelies!!!!! Is it me or is it true that no matter what’s going on in the world Friday’s ALWAYS make LYFE seems better???!!!

With that being said, last Friday my hubby & I decided to do something we have NEVER done before and that was to hop in the truck & take a road trip! Nothing was actually planned we just said we were going to do it. And, guess what??? WE DID!!!! We had talked about doing this throughout the week and made the FINAL decision on FRIDAY. I told ya’…  it’s just something about FRIDAY’S!!!!

It was soooo HOT that I didn’t feel like dealing with my hair & wanted to be comfortable for the ride so I threw on a Sundress, Flip Flops & my BIG HAT! With the girls in tow... we ended up in Tennessee and went to Lake Winnie Amusement Park. We had a BLAST… I felt like a kid again as we enjoyed the rides, waffle cones, coca-cola floats, French fries, ckn tenders, funnel cakes, cotton candy & FIREWORKS!!!!

Rode Trip Successful... we made it to Lake Winnie!!!!

I think I can BEAT the HEAT!

A few rides...
My daughters were actually own this ride when this picture was taken!

It's the kid in ME!!!!
Lake Winnie has been around for years & is making history

This was by far the BEST Ride... The Cannonball
My Loves!!!!

My Thoughts
It’s ok to be a KID again; even if it’s just for a DAY! (I DID)
Step outside of your comfort zone… do something you have NEVER done before!
