Last week our family had the opportunity to visit Kennywood and it was an absolute blast! I want to share some pictures from our day and encourage you to go before summer ends!

We got there right when the park opened at 10:30a.m. and headed straight for our oldest son’s favorite ride: the Jack Rabbit roller coaster! Then we were off to our second son’s favorite ride, the bumper cars!
Our younger two loved the race cars and Kiddieland!
The smiles tell the story… 🙂
It was a hot day, and we discovered the BEST way to cool down and relax: the movie short Ice Age: No Time for Nuts 4-D! Wow! This is probably a $10 value per person for free right in the park, AND it was air conditioned! The kids loved it, and we all enjoyed the chance to sit and relax and even be sprayed with bits of water during the show!
We cooled off at another point in the afternoon with some ice cream and a blue Icee…YUM!
I felt like our day at Kennywood gave me a chance to see a side of my kids that I don’t usually get to see. I couldn’t believe that our eight year old did just about every wild ride in the park, including the Steel Phantom, The Racer, and the Jack Rabbit! He loved it all! He’s quite the daredevil. 🙂
Our youngest absolutely loved the Carousel. He is seen here riding it for the SIXTH time!
This was such a fun day for our family. It was the perfect way to celebrate the end of summer before school starts. Grab your tickets with the discount at the top of this post and go this month! Trust me, your kids will be thrilled!
