Saturday was family day for Toyota Motor Manufacturing Kentucky. They buy out King’s Island, an amusement park in Ohio, for the entire day. Everything is free–tickets for everyone on your health insurance plan or an equivalent number of guests, parking, and unlimited drinks.
Tyler and Rosie go every year, but this was the first year Ada has been. It was Henry’s first year too, of course.
Tyler’s parents also came along and brought my BIL’s daughter Lauren. Rosie and Ada adore their cousin! She’s three, so she fits right in.
The park was decorated for Halloween. Extra fun.
Lauren was a little apprehensive about the Halloween things everywhere.
I snapped all of these pictures with my phone, so some are better quality than others.
Lines, lines everywhere!
Look, we’re waiting in another line. Woot!
I tried to tell them not to kiss on the lips. No one listens to me.
Riding the kiddie helicopters with Rosie. They go about 2 miles an hour on a level track. Thrilling!!!!
Henry is like the easiest baby ever made, sometimes at least. He didn’t cry once the entire day.
Tyler said he was going to take a picture of me wearing Henry in the Tula. Then he handed me my phone and he’d taken this picture…of the man behind me.
Here’s what he was supposed to do the first time:
Look and smile Henry. LOOK AND SMILE.
Ice cream break.
The view from up on the tower!
Stupid pimples can pop and die right meow.
All of the kids together.
Man, that coaster was killer.
Rosie’s favorite ride there: The swings! (Last year someone threw up next to Rosie on this ride. Gross.)
After 7 p.m. they opened up the place to the public and the monsters came out. My favorite part!! Unfortunately the kids were too little to go in the haunted corn maze or the haunted house, so we had to skip that. Just seeing all of the people dressed up with the fog and creepy noises was pretty funny anyway.
It started getting dark out, but I took blurry pictures just for the heck of it.
One guy working at King’s Island got in a fight with someone who yelled in his ear. We thought they were joking at first, but it turns out…nope.
Ada loved it. Ada was terrified. Ada loved it. Ada begged to go again next year to get even more scared.
Har har har. Wish this wasn’t blurry.
