Our last stop in Chattanooga before heading home was the Incline Railway. It’s pretty fun to ride down and it gives an amazing view of the city. We waited a bit to be able to sit in the first row.

We went to see Rock City this morning. We got in just before a school-bus full of kids. We had yet another day of amazing weather. It was hot out there, but the sky was pretty. We had a great time wandering around the gardens and we ended up spending at least twice as much time there as I had thought we would.
A quick drive this afternoon put us in Chattanooga, and we were able to go to Ruby Falls with no wait at all (which was a huge improvement from when we went years ago and had to wait a really long time). It wasn’t crowded at all, and we moved through the cave very quickly and got to the waterfall. It’s a lot more enjoyable when you don’t have all that waiting.
I hadn’t been to Kings Island in nearly 20 years, so it was good to be back. The kids had never been before. It was even better that their cousins Joe and Mike could come with us (and Monkey Grandma, too!). And a special thanks to Kevin for the tickets!! We spent a lot of the day in the water park, and I didn’t really take many pictures, but here are a few:
We made our annual trip to Holiday World and had an awesome time. We were there from open to close (a first for us). The weather was perfect — sunny all morning and a little overcast in the afternoon. We spent most of the day in the water park (and got to ride the awesome new Wildebeest) and so I didn’t have my camera much, but here are a few pictures:
We went to this amusement park in Bowling Green, KY. I hadn’t heard of it until recently. It was very close (at least, relative to other places we go) and there was almost nobody there. We could get right on rides with no lines. It was a pretty fun day. The weather, which was supposed to be stormy, turned out to be beautiful for us, so we were lucky there, too. I didn’t bring my camera, but here’s a shot of us on the roller coaster (Kentucky Rumbler) and two pics from my cell phone.
