Kings Island, Back To The Pool, Memorial Day Parade

Kings Island

Our first visit to Kings Island in 2024. We had a great time. That Sunday during Memorial Day Weekend is a great time to visit the park. Couple that with the threat of rain in the afternoon and you can have the place to yourself. We definitely had that in our favor. We saw the new Camp Snoopy Land addition and ate at their new dining attraction. The new roller coaster there was not up and running though so we were not able to do it. We’d also hoped to see Leslie’s cousin perform in one of the entertainment options but he was not working that day.

I thought the food was OK. We tried the all beef hot dog with cheese and bacon bits and the chicken tenders. The s’mores cake wasn’t really good in my opinion but everyone else seemed to enjoy it. Again, another year of watching kids ride at Kings Island. Ben is getting a little taller though and can do a few more rides but he’s a little slow to sign on. Ted is a little afraid but only at first, he will ride eventually and then the ice breaks and he’s willing to try more rides.

Back To The Pool

We went to Silverlake for the Pool Opening and we nearly froze our butts off. The same happened with the visit to our local HOA pool. We are blessed to have access to two pools. I don’t know how much longer we’ll keep our Silverlake membership. We are thinking of scaling back on some things and this would get cut. The first issue is that it is just not close enough to the house to use more often. Traffic getting there is getting a little hairier. Obviously not a problem during weekends/summer but I’m not sure a monthly fee is worth it when we’re only using the facilities for 12 hours a month.

Memorial Day Parade

I took our Webelos into the parade here in our hometown. This is the last year my Webelos will be here as Cub Scouts. If they do not join the Troop then it will be the last one they’ll ever be in as Scouts. Sad day but my youngest son was also in the parade and it was his first. This is a fun tradition, I am glad we get to take part in it every year.
