Holiday World

We decided to take the kids to Holiday World in Santa Claus IN. The kids had fun. Unlike Six Flags there are not a million people trying to ride the same ride you are. The kids never had to wait more than a couple minutes for a ride. Many rides they jumped on over and over again. We did the ride part Thursday and did the water park on Friday.

Jon and Josh

Joe and Alison

Joe Jon and Alison
These are Joe's kids. Spin them, drop them, flip them over... back in line they go!

Kelsey and Josh
This was their ride. They did it 20 times I'm sure. These are my kids nice and safe and not sick to their stomachs!

Josh a little cold
The weather wasn't quite warm enough for the water rides. That didn't stop the kids though!

Kelsey waiting for Jon and Alison so she could ditch Josh and have real fun. Love you Kelsey!

Jon is trying to avoid the sun we finally got on Friday.

If you notice...Alison is in hardly any photos. That girl loves her a theme park. She came back twice. Once to eat and the second when we told her we had to still drive 3 hours home and we had to go. I know she wishes we lived next door.

Crazy Kids

So summer break is here and we have rain. I guess with the combo of that we get some interesting ideas.

Jon found some tape

Should have given them some shampoo. They were soaked!

On Monday night (May 4th) Alison was riding her bike and fell off face first. She wouldn't let me take a picture until now. You can see it was pretty bad. At least now all the swelling is down. Her lips looked like collagen gone seriously wrong. She managed to chip two teeth but no root damage. She didn't go to school the rest of the week. She did go for a few hours on Friday when I was there volunteering.

For whatever reason, we can never get my parents to vacation together. Or at least that's the way it seems. So this time it was my dad who came out to visit. We had a good time. Saturday we went down to the Arch and to Union station. We ate at Hard Rock and took a carriage ride. I totally forgot the camera so there is only one photo from this weekend of Jon and my dad on Sunday before church. Next time we have been promised a trip with both grandparents at the same time. I'll also do better with the photos. Thanks dad for coming out!
