Taste of the Bluegrass

Last night Mike and I went to Taste of Bluegrass with some friends. We had a great time trying a bunch of different foods from local restaurants and trying all of the different bourbons and wines from Lexington. My favorite was the Four Roses Rosarita!

King's Island

We decided to get away for Memorial Day weekend, so we packed up the car and headed north to King's Island theme park in Mason, Ohio. It's a huge park, and was not surprisingly packed with people that weekend. Aside from Drew having stinging red eyes due to the sunscreen, we had so much fun and were completely exhausted by the end of the day.
Jack surveys the scene in the Nickelodeon Universe.

This was Jack's favorite. It's kiddie coaster that whips the kids around a couple of corners. The first time he was a little scared, but the remaining 5 times he had a huge grin on his face the whole time! Click on the video below to see him in action.

Snack time!



A great picture of the boys riding together in the little yellow jeep. Drew was very proud of himself and turned to smile at us every time he went by.



Trying to pose for a picture, just as the "drop tower" started to drop!




The end of the day, as if it isn't apparent from the exhausted look on his face!
