Where Has the Camera Gone?

Just before we headed back to Iowa from Utah, Aunt Dana treated us to a day at Lagoon. If you are a local, you know all about Lagoon....the white roller coaster, Colossus, the swings, Pioneer Village, JetStar 2, bumper cars, etc. Sydnee wanted to ride EVERYTHING and Christian was a little more cautious. Sydnee rode the Wild Mouse twice with Mom and Christian LOVED the Flying Aces. Our favorite ride of all was Rattlesnake Rapids.
At the end of the night, Jordan and Taylor talked me into riding the new rollercoaster, Wicked. I was very nervous, but felt that I could handle it with my nephews by my side. We had to wait in line for about 45 minutes and didn't know if we would even get on before it closed. The anxiety was building and we did get on and it is the best rollercoaster I have ridden since Speed in Las Vegas.
In the midst of all the excitement, I forgot to take my camera, with all of my pictures from the last two weeks, out of my pocket. Yikes! It had flown out somewhere between the 55 mph shot into the sky and the corkscrew. I was in tears! Luckily, the lady at the Lost and Found booth said that I had a 5% chance of finding the camera, much less the memory card. Thank goodness for Dana's quick thinking, Taylor and I went back to the coaster just after close when they were scoping out under the ride to find all of the lost items. There was a line of people waiting for their wallets, hats, cell phones, etc. We waited in extreme anticipation. The girl approached the desk with armloads of stuff and MY CAMERA and all of it's exterior parts was included. All I could do was hug her! The camera was in bad shape, but luckily the memory card was jammed inside. Phew! All of our vacation pictures were saved! Lucky, lucky day.
