South side Water Slide--this has been on my summer to do list since Andrew was about 3 but we never actually made it over to do this waterslide . . . this year I was determined to get it in. It was kind of expensive for the amount of time we were able to enjoy it (you pay by the slide . . . but the kids LOVED it--even Gavin who I thought wouldn't go down it at all. You are supposed to go down sitting on a purple raft . . . not sure what happened to Gavins but he just kept shouting "I wost it, I wost it . . . its gone!" LOL
Dinner picnic . . .
Daddy even got to join us for this final library activity, a magic show with Ronald McDonald.
Policeman Picnic with Daniel and Cherith at the waterpark. (Lakyn even won a stuffed animal prize!!--Daniel won a BIKE!!!)
Butterfly house . . . Andrew (surprisingly) always LOVES this!!!
This picture was so hard for her. She was so frightened of the butterflies (as she is with most living things . . . ) but was determined to hold one . . . this is what some perseverance, help from Grandma and holding your breath can get you . . .
Tim and I got a weekend away and found ourselves again at the Ohio State Fair . . . not necessarily trying to make this a yearly tradition, but did enjoy the time away. Tim especially enjoyed the butter creations in honor of the Cavs this year.
They had a new show this year that we really loved. It was a diving show with Olympic quality divers . . . made us really nervous watching them dive into such a small pool, but, the show was excellent.
