All good things must come to an end.
Every beginning has an end.
Any more cliches you can think of? 'Cause I'm fresh out.
Anyway, we spent one last summer vacation day having nothing but fun. It was our last big hurrah before school, and it was a blast.
First, we went to King's Island. I made the kids pose a lot. I usually leave my camera at home so I can just focus on having fun, but today I wanted to capture exactly why we love this park so much.
We love the Eiffel Tower-wannabe, with its fountains and beautiful landscaping all around...
We love riding roller coasters together and letting Gabe stay in the locked area, taking pictures to his heart's content. We especially love when there's no line to get on our favorite rides!
We love "make your own Icee's", especially cherry and coke and sprite flavors.
(I love that the kids still let me coordinate their outfits to make for a good scrapbook page.)
After a day at KI, we ran home and grilled out some yummy pork chops, then headed out to the Southwest Golf Ranch.
Elijah's golf club was almost as big as him...
And even though it rained for the first fifteen minutes, we still had an awesome time. One of the best parts was hearing Gabe shout, "Not the bunker! Watch out for the rough!". The fact that he knows golf terms was cracking us all up!
We've been wanting to try a newer ice cream shoppe in town, so when the rain moved in again, we headed over to Whit's Custard and dug in. (Gabe was d-u-n getting his picture taken by this point.)
