Kings Island!!

On Sunday we got up early, picked up Glenn and Whitney and headed to Kings Island near Cincinnati. Once we arrived Glenn convinced us to go on a roller coaster called Firehawk. He assured me my feet would not be hanging, however he did not tell me that we would be laying down strapped in and feel like I was flying. It was an awesome ride! Declan stayed with Nana while we rode. We went on another roller coaster after that one. It was like space mountain and was also very fun. We all took turns riding the Beast, the largest wooden roller coaster in the world.  Declan played in the arcade while we rode the Beast.
After eating lunch, it was Declan's turn for fun. We watched the Peanuts sing and dance. Then Declan got to meet each character and dance with them. He loved it.
We met up with Glenn's daughter Laurie, Sean, Kate and Cameron. We took the three kids to Camp Snoopy to go on the rides. They all had a wonderful time driving cars, flying in planes and laughing.
Once the kids had done the rides, we went on the log ride with Whitney and Sean and got soaked! It was so much fun.

Glenn, Lynne and Whitney headed for home. The rides were shut down a few minutes after they left due to thunderstorms. We had wanted to go to the water park, Soak City but it was also closed. We went back to ride the carousel and a few other Snoopy rides. Then we headed back to Columbus stopping for dinner at Steak and Shake. Declan loved his chocolate shake!
