We've made this a yearly weekend trip and it just gets better and better each year we go! We met up went with our best friends from Cincinnati, the Cassidy's - Kevin, Linda, Alexis, Taylor and Megan, Friday morning about 60 miles from the campground, had lunch, then went to set up our cabins and campsite. We also took along our neighbors across the street, the Rock's - Mike, Jody, Amanda and Ben. If you like Halloween and/or Trick or Treating, you've GOT to take your kids down to Holiday World's campground and check this out - it's something we look forward to every year and it's worth every penny!!!
We finally broke down and splurged on the family cabins this year (we used to rent the RV's) - now we're really spoiled . . . and hooked! We've already reserved our cabins for next year!!!
Daddy, Evan and Grant - riding bikes and playing football!
Grant, Kevin, Blake and Alexis hangin' in the woods.
So Evan is way too young to know what the Bates Motel is, but he thought it was a cool thing to hang outside of our cabin. It's one of the few "decorations" we have left from our wild Halloween Party days.
Evan and Blake, chillin' on the couch inside the cabin. It's amazing that my kids never missed having a TV or XBox the entire weekend!!! It gives me hope that they really CAN live without it!
The Urban Assault Team - Another Evan (whose family was on the other side of our cabin), Evan, Grant and Ben
Daddy and Kevin playing football with Blake - he's actually quite good!
This was hilarious - Evan gave his plastic knife to Megan, and she kept trying to "stab" him with it, so he pretended to look scared so I'd take a picture of it!
Grant LOVES babies, so he loved every opportunity he got to hold Megan.
Blake, Grant, & I getting ready to make some sand figurines (fish of course).
Blake loved trying to pour the sand into the funnel on top of his fish, and Grant was a true pro with a little bit of help from Amanda!
Blake, Grant and Taylor fishing for prizes.
Blake actually liked the clown - Grant wasn't so sure, but he eventually got a picture with him too.
Evan picked out a turtle figurine to fill with colored sand.
Everyone costumed up and ready to get "the booty" (candy) as they called it.
Another great feature at Lake Rudolph is the golf carts you can rent. Makes travelling around the campground so much easier - cuz' it's a pretty big place. This is me with the girls (cuz' I have to live vicariously through Linda with her 3 girls, and she through me with my 3 boys) and Blake couldn't stand it, so he wanted to be in the picture too.
Blake getting some candy from Amanda.
The campsite decorations were unbelievable this year. Grant thought this one was cool, cuz' you had to reach into this slimy thing to get your "treat".
I think I'm going to be in trouble when my boys start driving!!!
Shawn and Kevin hangin' by the fire - and you should've seen the blaze these boys put together - good thing Smoky the Bear wasn't around or they would've been arrested for almost burning the entire place down!!!
Linda and I on the last night there! Love and miss ya already girlfriend!!!
