Vacation TIme - Indiana PA - Day 3 - Yellow Creek

It's Xia again. We had so much fun at Mack Pool, Mommy decided that on Friday 6/25/10 we needed to check out Yellow Creek State Park. Another place she spent a lot of time in the summers growing up. They have a great lake there with a small little man-made sandy beach. First we had to get ourselves motivated to get out the door as the day at Mack Pool really tired us out!

Here are Kira and I hanging out after first waking up:

Marlon can make numbers out of legos! Very impressive, but can we please go to Yellow Creek now?

C'mon Isa, wake up already!!

Finally we were all ready and we grabbed our towels, blankets, pails and shovels and off we went.

Isa didn't waste any time getting into the sand...

Neither did I...

We both had a lot of fun playing in this sand, but it sure isn't the same as sand at the beach. This stuff sticks to you like glue! But again I wasn't afraid of the water and ran right in to get the stuff off of me when it got to be too much.

Here's a pic with my lovely cousins...

Marlon made a really cool path in the sand for the water...

And here's a shot of him with Grandma. We are the luckiest grand kids around to have such a fun Grandma!

After sleeping in in the morning, Isa STILL needed more sleep:

Daddy spent the day in Pittsburgh at a great record store called Jerry's Records. He just loves finding original, interesting, so bad it's good music on vinyl. When he came to pick us up, we were having a blast at the playgrounds.

Here I am with Kira and Marlon on a cool tire swing. Man am I having fun!!

Then we had fun on a stand up see-saw:

Marlon does a cartwheel:

Next, I braved a VERY TALL slide:

And I just LOVE balance beams. I'm always making sidewalk curbs into balance beams, but this was the REAL deal!

Now this balance beam actually bounced, so I decided to ride it instead of trying to walk on it. That was a little too hard for me. But Kira and Marlon were really good at it.

Kira's telling Marlon to wait until she's ready to bounce! Whee...

Marlon really liked to bounce the thing...

And I LOVED riding in the middle:

Whew! We were all pooped at the end of the day. I just loved Kira's sock monkey pjs - so cute!

We all slept very good that night!
