This past Tuesday I had the great opportunity to have a sleepover at the store and travel to King’s Island with my coworkers and employers from RaeLynn’s Boutique. Being the newest employee and only having worked with a few of the girls, I was nervous about how I would fit in- especially since I was the oldest of the girls. Soon, however, I knew we would all have a blast.
The night before we left for the amusement park we all gathered together for a sleepover on the store floor with pizza and junk food. Not everyone could make it to the slumber party, but we did have a good turnout. We played music, danced around, took a ton of pictures, and watched The Hangover before falling asleep. I had a great time learning more about the wonderful girls that I work with.
We woke up early the next morning to hit the road and start riding roller coasters. We all piled into the big white van Alison and Bridgett rented for us to all fit into. We had a great trip up. I happened to bring my iPod so the girls in front played a bunch of upbeat music and we had a crazy dance party in the van. We probably drove Alison and Bridgett crazy with the loud, nonstop rap music.
Two hours later we finally arrived at Kings Island!! The first ride we rode was Drop Tower. This was the highlight of my day. We all pressured Bridgett into facing her fear and ride it with us. She was in terror. Allie and I held her hands on each side of her while tears streamed down her face. We did our best to comfort her through the journey. Before we knew it the ride was over and we were back on the ground. Bridgett made it through! I think Allie and I both lost circulation in our hands from Bridgett holding on so tight, but it was worth it.
By the time we got back to the car we were exhausted. We had a great time together. We rode almost every ride, got henna tattoos, ate blueberry ice cream, and took pictures with Snoopy. It was a great bonding experience for all of us. I got to know all of my wonderful coworkers more and they got to know the new girl more as well. It was so amazing that “Al” and “B” closed down the store from selling Prom Dresses and Tuxedos for a day to take all of us to King’s Island. It was a great break from normal life! I had an amazing time and I will never forget it.
