Fun Day Out At Adventure World

Hello and welcome to The Cooking Wardrobe, where style and food intersect.  

To start off 2015 with a bang, oh sorry I meant BANG, hubby and I, my sister and a group of friends organised a day out with the kids to Adventure World.  I sort of got everyone hyped up about how much fun it would be, I was telling them to bring their swimsuits because there are lots of pools and water play for the kids, lots of rides and blah, blah, blah.  You see, yours truly is the biggest coward you will ever come across.  I am scared of heights and I can't swim, so even though I enjoyed the day out, I got back home with only one pitiful ride under my belt.   Even that ride my dear readers is another blog post altogether.  My girlfriend who is a bigger wuss than myself decided to go on the ride with me.  We were peddling this bicycle like thingamajig, on a thin rail like thingamabob high up with our eyes firmly shut. Can you imagine?  Anyway, half way through I opened my eyes, only because my friend was asking if we had reached the end and the kids where yelling and waving.

Most of the other guys gave it a go.  Okay, the little secret here is that most of us in the group can't swim, and those that can, have a unique way of doing it.  Take hubby for example, he can dive down and stay under the pool for a long time because he has mastered breath control however when he swims, his legs are all over the place in the water. Then there are the others who are good at standing in the pool, while I safely held on to the camera taking photos just to avoid being asked to give it a try.  Only the kids and Alton did a decent job of the swimming. Elma and Bernadine I officially crown water slide pros and champion give everything a go.  It was definitely a fantastic day out and I am ready to do it again.  

Thank you for reading, leave a comment and I will come and visit your blog. Have a great week!!!!
