Family Fun: Knoebel's
Yesterday we did two things we rarely do.
1. We missed church
2. We went to an amusement park.
Knoebel's is an Amusement Resort. You can actually stay in the park. It is old fashioned in a good way. Fun rides, lots of trees, tons of benches to sit on! You also do not pay to enter the park, which is great for folks who are not planning to ride. You buy tickets for the rides. There are pavilions for eating your own lunches - I saw people with charcoal grills cooking their food!
We went as part of Tim's company picnic. This meant that we had our lunch provided for us. Hot dogs, hamburgers, and grilled chicken, slaw, macaroni salad and ice cream. All you could eat. Then the kids got gifts from the company. There were not many who chose to come to this picnic. The company has other events at different locations and on different dates. This event worked for us!
All of our children came, including Kayleigh and Joseph who are in law kids, and our granddaughter, Kamryn who will be 4 this coming Sunday!
We had such a good time! We had beautiful weather, rode until we were tired and out of tickets, and left the park with happy smiles!
Here are some photos from the day.
These smiling girls and I were waiting for the guys to bring the cars up when we were leaving. Tired but happy.
Tim and I are so thankful for the family he has given us. We recognize that these fun times where we all are together will be fewer and farther between, as the kids grow and start families of their own. We are delighted in the friendships we have with our kids, and tease them that when we are empty nesters we are going to buy a motor home and come park in each of their driveways for part of the year. With 6 kids we can spend two months out of the year with each of them! Hey! What a plan! ha ha ha!
We are blessed!
If you get a chance to go to Knoebel's I know you'll love it. We surely did.
