Mark Waterpark off my Bucket List

We took the nephews to The Beach Waterpark yesterday.  I've never been to a Waterpark, so it was a learning experience.  Aaron took us on the biggest scariest ride first.  Thanks.  The Cliff is one big drop, and you will be airborne for at least an hour (okay, only a few seconds, but it feels like an hour).  We rode it once.  That was enough.

Aaron is so brave!

Sam is totally airborne!
After four hours of rides, we were hungry, sore, and totally worn out.  I'm so glad we didn't spend the whole day there. 

Last night, we went out to dinner with Uncle Ron.  It was so good to spend time with him and talk.  After dinner, we dropped by the Cincinnati Observatory.  After listening to a lecture on asteroids, we peered through the telescope and saw Saturn!  We saw the rings and stars above it.  From the portable telescope outside, we saw the moon.  It was HUGE and very clear.  There were craters visible, and the moon seemed to sparkle like diamonds.  What an experience!

Today is our last day in Cincinnati.  We really love it here and would move here.  But, there are no close trails for mountain biking and fishing is limited.  Hmmmm.
