We went to Lake Compounce today! Our friends came with their 2 kids (8 and 5 y/o) and their friend's teenage son. He's the lead singer in a death-metal band and definitely looks the part (big and intimidating with long hair, black clothing, and spikey bracelets) and such a wonderful kid!! He and W were practically inseparable all day and K and J both wanted him next to them on every ride. The park is gorgeous, built on a lake and a mountain. We hit all the big roller coasters - my favorite was the Zoomerang. The tickets were free and I don't think we spent more than $50 in all today (lunch, dinner, a few games, junk food). We got there about 11am and left at around 8pm. I love theme parks!
