Calaway Park 2011: Part 1

On Friday of the August long weekend we took the kids to Calaway Park. We camped with The Russells and Grandad and Grammee at the Calaway Park Campground. The next two days we rode every ride in the park a million times. It was so much fun. The kids loved it!

In the morning we went over to Grammee and Grandads trailer to cook some breakfast

A Close up. I love this picture! They are having so much fun!

Onto the swings.

This is a truck I drove when I was young! The girls driving the front and Zach manning the back

The gang watching Sue and Dad go on a crazy Adult ride. It goes in circles and then shoots you out over the park. Very Cool.

Dad's not sure what he got himself into

I am pretty sure I posed in front of this Mammoth when I was Abbys age

After a hard day playing at the park we headed back across the field and had dinner at the trailers.

After dinner we went back to the Park for a few more hours to take in a few more rides

I love that picture of the three of them on the Baja car with their arms up! Except Zach kept one hand on the steering wheel. Good job Zach - love, Granny xx
