We had hoped to go on a week long summer vacation this year, but it didn’t work out.
So we decided to take a couple of fun “day trips” as a family this summer.
Yesterday, we went to Kings Island in Mason, OH. I went there a lot of times as a kid, usually with my church youth groups, and I was looking forward to going again to see how much it had changed.
Unfortunately, I was a little under the weather, but I took some medicine and “sucked it up” for my boys! I couldn’t let them down!
Here are a few pictures from our little excursion.
We arrived at the park when it first opened, and the boys were ready to go!
Here’s Eli on his first ride. We couldn’t tell if he was scared to death, or just REAL serious about driving his race car.
Of course, we had to get a picture in the Mystery Machine!
We spent a lot of the afternoon at the water park.
Here’s Jonathan and Luke coming down a water slide.
(Jonathan’s on the left, and Luke’s under the water on the right!)
Adam sums up the day…
And Eli lets us know that it is time to go home! (He started getting a little cranky.) Sweet boy.
