First day of our vacation week, we went to the water park.
The middle of the week, we went camping (something daughter really wanted to do.)
On Friday, we had planned to go to Beech Bend Park (b/c that is something the son wanted to do.) But it rained all morning. We had nearly decided to postpone it for some other time when we saw the radar was showing clear skies for the rest of the afternoon.
So, we loaded into the van and took the two hour trip down to Bowling Green.
First, we rode the big wooden roller coaster.
Then they rode the bumper cars:
Then we rode the Wild Mouse Spinning Coaster. This is the photo from the website:Yes, if you're from KY you'll remember that the old version would sometimes throw the whole car off the tracks. The operator could remember it too. I didn't mention it to the kids, but my hiney sure did tighten as we came to the edges!
Then they got me on something called (of all things) Moby Dick. The operator took a photo for us. Can you see the excitement in my eyes? NOT! Before we left, the kids and I rode the wooden coaster one more time. That's me in the second car being funny.
As we reached the top of the first hill, I'm securing my bandana!
It was nearing closing time and we had ridden all we wanted. So we wandered over to their petting zoo. The baby goats were the best!
They were plumb tuckered out from a full day of play and people. We would give the ones who wanted it, a good rub where their horns were coming in. I had one to almost fall over with pleasure and exhaustion while I was lightly scratching his forehead. I wanted to take them home with us.
Our white cat, Maggie sleeps the same way... with her head butted up against something.
