Summer of 2011 is quickly drawing to a close and over here at BIDWTF we like to document the end of summer happenings.
Like Kings Island.
She trusts him. It's something to behold, that sweet big brotherly protection and the adoration in her eyes.
I was witness to a father's love. It's a tender thing. They reach for a hand and it's already outstretched before the two intertwine. The world is as it should be when Daddy's around. No monster too great, no fear too small.
There were bumper cars (which Isaac calls "bumpy cars"... love that), airplanes and carousel rides.
We watched the Peanuts perform, rode the train and "drove" cars with the help of a big brother.
Gabe was super brave and rode the roller coasters. Isaac rode it and then asked if it was really a kids coaster. He went white as a ghost after we went screeching down the first hill. Gabe couldn't get enough. He thought it was better than ice cream and ice cream is hard to beat! I love that last picture of him, intently listening to the instructions.
And this little one. Well, she took the best care of her "baby". A pink and polka dot bunny she got for Christmas last year. She made sure that baby was well loved. She was a trooper, not wanting to miss a minute of the fun. And the boys did great including her in everything.
Last Friday night we headed out to Yellow Springs for one of our favorite places.
Where we ate yummy food and chased it down with sweet tea.
We went down the big slide and checked out the batting cages.
We played putt putt and fed the goats.
The last week of summer break we enjoyed lunch on the front porch.
We are tired.
But it was worth it, it always
It's been a good summer.
