Holiday World

Last Friday we spent the day at Holiday World. They give you free drinks all day long. Kyrie loved it! We spent most of the day at the water park there. It was tons of fun.

It really didn't take anytime for Kyrie to get the courage to go down a water slide. Once she got started there was no going back. She would go down a slide then run to the top to go down again.

This was one of Kyrie's favorites. She would wave to me at the top and say "bye, bye!" then head down to dad waiting at the bottom.

I was really impressed with Holiday World. It was really clean with plenty of fun things to do! I still can't get over the whole free drink thing all day. That was amazing! We went down only one roller coaster with Kyrie and she loved it. Afterwards she kept saying "more, more again, agian" The line was too much for her to handle. She really didn't understand the whole concept behind the line and kept trying to cut in front of everyone. We did have a little adventure with our car keys, or rather our lack of car keys. We thought we had lost them somewhere in the park and spent quite a while looking for them. We went out in the parking lot to find our car and take a look through the windows and guess what we found, our keys! Answer to prayers! It was great day at Holiday Word and tons of fun spending the day with Brian!

Mel in town

While Brian was gone to Utah, Melanie came out to Kentucky! Kyrie loved her and actually started screaming "Me me me" as we were pulling away from the airport after dropping Melanie off. Kyrie kept saying "Where'd she go?" when we got home and began searching the house, starting with looking under the couch cushions. It took a while before she finally realized Melanie was gone and not coming back. I had tons of fun with Melanie here! Thanks Mel for coming all the way from California to Kentucky to hang out with me!
So, while Mel was in town we went to the zoo. Kyrie was all over the place as usual, but she quite attached to her "aunt me me me". Just a few of the cool animals we saw while at the zoo. It was so hot all the animals were content to just lay around so there wasn't a lot of action.

Melanie, Kyrie, and the Rhino's

Kyrie spent more time pushing the stroller then actually sitting in it. Whatever.

Of course no zoo trip would be complete without a nice refreshing ice cream cone.

Melanie and Kyrie just seeing how they measured up to a full-grown gorilla.

Me, Mel, and Kyrie at the zoo!
By the end of our zoo trip we were hot and sweaty. It was a hot humid day but tons of fun.
I'm so glad Melanie was able to come out. She was such a big help, and even gave me a facial which was amazing! Mel is so much fun to be around I love her. I am so grateful for sisters! (Brothers too) Having five sisters is a blessing. I love having "built-in" best friends!
