Road Trip

1200 miles to Gramma's house. I am the lucky one who gets the 3rd seat to myself (for a little while, at least)

Almost there!
First see Gramma then go directly to the candy store.
It was the girls birthday so we took her to her favorite place-Red 'Lombster'

Back to Gramma's for candles and cake:

Usually we go to Holiday World, but this trip we decided to go to King's Island instead. It is bigger than I remember it as a kid (things change a little in 25ish years) with lots of roller coasters-I had a major coaster hang over by the end of the day.

This was waaaaaay up there. Been there, did that-won't ever have to do it again.

The kids spent a good amount of time getting soaked on the bridge:

I remembered this train from when I was seemed much more exciting then. I remember a western town and a shoot-out but nobody else remembers that.

This ride was fun. Look at all the little feet in the air:

Delaney Lake

All the kids were out there hopping, flipping and flopping off the diving board, but as soon a grown woman does a cartwheel off the end, suddenly it's too unsafe...give a teen-ager a whistle and a red swim suit and they become bossy and power hungry...

Its a beautiful placePoor Alexander-it's rough being the little guy

(the big kid is NOT rib punching the little kid-he's just shooting him...with a water gun)

Ohio River

One trip to the candy shop is not enough-we had to get a milkshake and make sure we had enough 'red hots' for the long drive home .
