The Bixler Family Road Trip!

About a month ago, Justin and I planned a "Bixler Family Road-Trip." Destination? Cincinnati.
When I was young - each summer my family would "Road Trip" to Cincinnati and take in a Reds baseball game, overnight in a hotel, and then hit the roller-coasters at Kings Island the next day. We decided to recreate this weekend with our little family of three.

This trip marked Jackson's first MLB game. I couldn't tell who was more excited - Justin or Jackson. Though we didn't catch a foul ball - Jackson still went home with an official practice ball. A big thanks to the "Hot Dog Guy" for scooping up practice balls from earlier that day and giving them to the "little Reds' Fans," like Jackson. He was thrilled!

Kings Island was a hit with Jackson. He instantly asked to ride The Beast...but we settled on the Great Pumpkin Ride. The only time we left Snoopy World was the take in the Water Park. Jackson loved the water slides and Justin and I loved the people watching! :)

The whole weekend was wonderful - three days with nothing but family time. It was much needed after such a busy summer.

I hate that I have gotten behind on the blogging updates - but it was nice to pull out these pictures a month later and remember what a great time we had. My favorite moment was sitting on the tailgate of the truck - watching the fireworks - eating Kings Island junk food because we never stopped riding the rides to eat dinner. Nothing beats a tailgate, Chicken nuggets, and fireworks at the end of a great family day!

Enjoy some pictures from such a fun weekend!

Jackson and Daddy!

Go Reds!

It isn't a baseball game unless you have a Hot Dog!

Jackson was so pumped over the ball!

...and then we hit Kings Island!

Not sure if this his "loving this ride" face.

So Fun!
Yep - I do love water slides!
