Knoebels Grove

A few weeks ago, Grandma and Grandpa Ken borrowed Jackie and whisked her away to a family favorite vacation spot. Knoebel's Amusement Park in Elysburg PA. This was Jacqueline's first trip to a big amusement park. She had been on Carousel's and mini-train rides and other small amusements before, but this was the first place with a ton of kiddie rides, and she's big enough now to really enjoy them. Knoebel's is such a great family park we were happy to let her go with them on a day that I had to work. Alison stayed at home with Catherine, and poor dad was stuck in his usual 9-5 drudgery while Jackie got to do all this...

Jackie riding the fire engine.

This kid is alert!

Leading the charge to the five alarm fire.

Waiting on line to be next!

Probably my favorite picture, here she is on the kiddie whip.

Having a ball.

Can't wait to get around the next turn

Take away that kids license, she can't see past the wheel.

Riding the Panther Cars, this was one of dads favorites as a lad.

Going Buggy!

I can hear the music that plays with this ride as I look at the pictures, maybe we'll get a video next time.

Jet Sky Fighter Ride, another favorite of Dad and Uncle Joes

Hand Cars...I have it on good authority Grandpa Ken was out on the course pushing her along a little.

Jackie had such a good time, we're going back again hopefully in two weeks, this time I'm taking some vacation so we can all go, Baby Catherine will be along for the ride as well, but as Jackie would say "she's too little" for the rides.
