Last minute Vacation

We planned a last minute surprise vacation .........................
We stayed at a great cabin with a wrap around deck with its own personal cave right behind it in the centre of Hocking Hills. The whole area was absolutely beautiful with lots of hiking, caves and waterfalls to explore. The smell was amazing (a mix of pine and cedar).
The next day was a shopping and driving day............
............................and then the last day we spent at Cedar Point.
 B's first rollar coaster she went on was Millennium force (below) which goes up 310 feet and goes 93 mph.  L even tried 2 rollar coasters and loved it.

This was the coaster that the girls and I liked best, the Iron dragon. The cars hang and swing and twist and turn at the end over water which sprays off a nice mist.
Close to the end of the day it rained but didn't last more than 5 min. Some of the rides shut down for a bit so we ventured down to the beach.

A quick stop at the beach

On the walk down to the water E was full of smiles, picking up the sand and the rocks. Once we reached the waters edge he stops for a second to look at the water and then just keeps walking right in and stomps his feet as if it were a big puddle to splash it :)

.................and then he discovered the wet sand, picking it up and throwing it into the water, giggling at the big splash he made.

Horses, goats, pigs and chickens

I was excited to bring L and E to see the horses and other farm animals as I used to bring the older girls every year when they were younger.

Some weekend hiking

 We finally got around to doing some hiking on the weekend. This was one of the crevices along the path. It actually continues a ways underground.

Sand cakes and spring buds

We've been making a lot of these cakes in the sandbox lately, well I guess mostly I have and her big sister B has made quite a few too. L adds the finishing touches......sprinkling on the 'icing' and then cutting it into pieces, her favourite part of the whole process.
