|"Look mom & Grandma. We made a saw mill!"|
|The boys with Kenny.|
|The pagoda was designed by an uncle and his coworkers.|
(I put the "bug" in Pumpkin's ear about being an architect
with all his drawing & designing.)
|A wall of water from the ride The Pittsburgh Plunge.|
|One of Pumpkins faves! Fireball Coyote "doesn't like getting wet".|
|Put your hand up on the Whip! WEEEEEE!|
|This is the first year Fireball Coyote could ride the bumper cars.|
|Ready to ride the Jack Rabbit ~ roller coaster.|
|Riding the Kangaroo is another favorite of everyone.|
|The only ride of this kind still in operation.|
|Fireball Coyote ride this about 10 times through out the day, if not more.|
|The Parachute, alone.|
|Fireball Coyote's speed, kiddyland.|
|A laser show at night with funnel cakes. One was topped with ice cream & strawberries!|
A great day!
|Pumpkin after a while got tired "chasing balls" and quit.|
At the park there is also a NICE stone sprinkler and playground equipment,
it was well used.
While in Latrobe we went swimming, visited the
at St. Vincent's College.
|The uncle who help design the pagoda at Kennywood, did this project.|
|Here we watched a short video about how the mill began, runs, and is still in use today.|
|They learned about the different pigments in butterflies, too.|
These iridescent butterflies are different than the pigment butterflies, in that their coloring does not rub off.
These type have even been see from space!
|Male and females.|
On Saturday, our last night, :-( the boys played Yahtzee with grandma and mom went to lunch with a friend. YEAH! Thanks mom!!! Then we went to a local church carnival in the evening.
|One of our favorite stop on eh way up &/or back is the|
New River George Bridge.
|There are sometimes rafts that go down the river. |
We are always curious on how to get to the roads below.
When we returned, pretty much all week, all the boys did is play with their Legos. TONS of story plotting, character building, language and more happened.
We did go to the library one day during the week. When we were there I noticed a poster for the movie Big Miracle. We definitely came back to see that!
On the Saturday after we came back Pumpkin and I did grocery shopping and went to see A Mid Summer's Night Dream at a local library. He really doesn't need Literature just yet, but I figured why not start now and maybe he'll understand and like it better. Happily, he liked it and enjoyed it!!! :-)
Fireball Coyote, go to "hang out with dad" and do tractor things.
