Our first family(ish) trip to King's Island! Steve has lots of good memories of him and his family going to King's Island every year while he was growing up, and now he wants to create the same with our family. The babies are still too little and needy to go, so Steve, Elias and I dropped them off with Mimi and Papaw and headed out!
I'm not sure who was more excited about going...Elias or Steve. But Elias stayed in green on the Friday before, so he called Daddy and said, "King's Island, here we come!"
We had a fantastic time. Elias was sooo good. I didn't have to discipline him at all, he tried all the big rides, and he WALKED almost all day. The only problem came in at the end of the day. It is Halloween time, and the park becomes haunted at night. We thought it was only in one part, but instead, the whole park became dark, foggy, and scary. Elias flipped out, and would not let Daddy put him down. He wouldn't allow me to carry him. Only Daddy could protect him. We ended up leaving before nine. Normally, Daddy would have never allowed us to leave early. He refuses to leave before park closing EVER no matter what the conditions. He is adamant that he will get his money's worth! :)
