We found a spot near the kid waterslides, but we didn't stay there long. There is a lot to see. At the Lagoon they had these water bikes.

But Jackson still really wanted to ride those bikes. He couldn't think of anything else when I asked the kids to pose for a picture before we left the lagoon.

We walked back over a bridge where Jackson made us all stop and look back at the bikes. Man. I was feeling pretty mean not letting him ride them, but by now I couldn't just because he was throwing such a fit. We had to find something he would enjoy fast...
Atlantis did not disappoint. We went over to the big slides and the lazy river (although it was not lazy, but full of rapids). It was SO much fun. They even has escalators so you could stay in your tube and go back to the top of the slide. He finally cheered up when I let him take me on a few of the scary slides in a double tube. John said he could hear me screaming all the way down! We rode the river around for a long time and it was such a blast for everyone. That is definitely somewhere we could spend several days and not get bored of it.
Overall, I thought Atlantis was super cool and I wish we could have had more time there. 1 day was not enough to see everything.
Back on the ship, it was Pirate night for dinner. J&J and Elise all packed stuff to wear. The big boys were at least gracious enough to wear the bandanas provided in our rooms. I thought we were a pretty good looking gang of pirates.
