Who doesn't love hanging out in the water when it's a hot summer day? Kilohana and Nani from my hula halau had the awesome idea of cooling off by going the the local water park in San Dimas, CA. We started off the day bright and early and caravaned over to Raging Waters just moments after the park opened at 10am. Kilohana had the ingenious idea of getting a cabana for the day so we could rest and keep all of our stuff in privacy. Our group consisted of Nani, Christian (her husband), Makana (her sister), Melissa, Brenda (her friend), Kilohana, Luke (her son), Lucas and I.
The whole day consisted of lots of rides and an awesome hour in the lazy river. Christian, Nani's husband, and Lucas bonded in the lazy river by stealing the little kids' life vests and using them to sit on so they could coast throughout the river. Don't worry the lifeguards loved their inventions and the idea soon took over the river and our group. My favorite ride had to be the race; its a ride where every person gets their own mat and gets to race other people down the slide. I won, naturally. Hahaha. The final and most terrifying ride had to the the one that seemed to be like a mile up in the air. Walking up all the steps wasn't the problem, it was the fact that when you get that high, you can really feel the structure shake. Needless to say, Melissa and I were very happy to get off that ride so we could get down from that structure.
We ended the day by grabbing dinner together at El Torito. It was a great day with great friends. We hope to do it again next summer!
