So you think you can Dance

Friday Follow: Building Friendship One Blog Hop at a Time.  Go to Mamas Pixie Dreams and find new friends.
I just so happened to be flipping channels and came across the show, So you think you can Dance. I watched it a few years ago and have seen Lacey Schwimmer, the top 4 finalist become the Choreographer in 2009, Dancing with the Stars. This week a contestant on So you think you can dance is Alex, He is being accompanied by all star Twitch. Alex is a ballet dancer but watching this routine you would never know it. His routine this week was hip hop. I normally do not like hip hop dancing but this routine has changed my mind. It was BRILLIANT!!!! If all hip hop was like this it would have to be right up there side by side with contemporary dancing as my favorites.

Water Park, waves and slides

This morning we got up with the chickens to spend the day at Typhoon Lagoon in Orlando.  The park is only two hours away from where we live so it is very easy to just make a day of it.  

The Cisco Kid is very content watching the Shrek movie with his head phones on.  I have to say, I am also in the back seat watching the movie. 
We leave all the driving to the Chief. 
When we got to the park the first water activities the Cisco Kid and the Chiefs wanted to do is the wave pool. That is their favorite water activity.
Every minute or so you hear this loud pound sound producing this six foot wave that hurled towards you very fast. The Cisco Kid loves to ride the wave in and wants to get glosser to the front where the wave originates because that is where it is the largest. That won't happen on my watch. I make him stay back where the waves are about three feet high. The first three or four time the wave hit the Chief picked the Cisco Kid up so the wave wouldn't drag him across the bottom of the pool. Then the Cisco Kid got very use to the power of the water and tackled the waves by himself.
My favorite part is the Lazy River. This is where you sit in a tube and let the water guide you through a very relaxing tropical oasis. The Cisco Kid didn't want a tube he just laid back on his head and floated down the river.
This is a fun little water area to cool down.
        This turned out to be a perfect on day trip.

Cub Scout Camp

Sorry I haven’t made a post in a couple of days but I have been at Cub Scout Camp all day and by the time I get home I am exhausted. The temperature has been in the high ninety.  HOT! HOT! HOT! There is a saying, you can fry an egg on the road it is so hot. Well it is true. It has been that hot.

The Cisco Kid is having a great time with Archery, BB gun shooting and going on the water slide. Thank goodness for the water slide. It keeps them cooled down.

My group of boys.  Seven of the ten boys are the Cisco Kids friends from school and Cub scouts.

The slide was a life saver for the boys.
Their favorite part was the BB gun shooting range. 
The Cisco Kid hit #7 on the target.  Not bad for only shooting for the second time.
