Several weekends ago, our family headed a few hours north to visit one of my good friends from college & her family. We ventured out to King's Island one of the days, and met a few more friends there, including Dora:
we rode some rides,
ate some blue ice cream that was super yummy!
some of us just couldn't take all of the excitement & had to rest a little while.
we ate some more snacks
and by the end, we were plain tuckered out! then, it started pouring down rain as we walked (ran) to the car!
the next day, we spent a little time relaxing because our zoo plans were spoiled by the prediction of even more rain.
thankfully, it only lasted a little while and we enjoyed the festival we went to that night. claire rode her first roller coaster & LOVED it! yes, he's trying to play with her hair...the fettish continues :-). This was one of the only things she could ride, but Grant rode all night until 11 pm. Round about that time, I felt the need to ride a "big person" ride. My body and my neck did not thank me the next day! I'm glad there's no picture evidence of that moment in time.
at the festival, we got tattoos
rode a camel
AND a pony!
and some of us spent LOTS more time than we wanted to in a stroller!
We had a wonderful time and can't wait to visit again soon! There's so much more to do at King's Island that we never got around to.
