4th of July (long) weekend, Part 2

On July 3rd we loaded up the cars and headed to Idlewild with all the kids, snacks, water bottles, and sunscreen.  We had a great day climbing ropes courses, riding rides, eating carnival food, riding more rides, and having a blast with a lot of friends.

 Elizabeth LOVES the ropes course

 The doodlebug!

 They loved the boats 

 Ben snapped this while we were waiting for the water ride

 Caroline wanted to ride with Kylie in the wagon
 Carousel rides with Dad :)

 Lunch break!

 These kids had so much fun together

 Motorcycle fun!

 Caroline is so big! :)

 Parent selfie

 Love my guy!

 Parents tired of waiting in line ;) ...

 We call them dragons...

 but they are actually dinosaurs

 Learning how to spend the teacup

 They figured it out :)

 Fun and dizzy :)

We stayed until late afternoon and the kids were wiped out by the end of the day.  It was a great day and the kids had so much fun!  Thank you so much to Stephen for the discount passes!!

On July 4th, we celebrated the holiday with a pool party!  We spent all day and most of the night poolside and enjoyed grilling out, swimming, fireworks, sparklers, and catching lightening bugs.

 Our attempt at a family photo 

 Still trying...

 Happy 4th of July ;)

 Caroline and Kylie hit the pool all day long :)

 Kylie LOVED the big yellow duck

And Elizabeth loved swimming in the deep end

 Caroline and I took a popsicle break

And then some chips and salsa too

 Pool party!

 Our crew

 With four kids, we made several attempts at a photo :)
 After dinner swimming

 End-of-swimming photo :)

 Ring pops!!

 For the adults too!

 After ring pops, it was time for sparklers

 And then some fireworks before bed!

Love the kids reaction!!!

On July 5th, we packed up our stuff and headed back to Virginia.  We tried to get a photo with all three girls before we left, but Kylie was suffering from vacation crash and refused to participate.  To be completely honest, our girls were very tired and cranky the rest of the day as they too were suffering from vacation crash. :)

And that's a wrap on our July vacation trip to Pennsylvania.

Thank you again to Jared and Kelly for hosting us!
Thank you Nick for hanging with us all week!

Happy Tuesday y'all!
