Niagara Trip - Day 13 - A day at the pool.

August 1, 2012

Today we drove from Ligonier, PA to Sandusky, OH.  It was an uneventful day.  The four hour drive took about six hours, but that’s pretty typical for us.  It included a lunch and grocery store stop, so that wasn’t too bad.  The kids are pretty used to the long drives now and even Zoe doesn’t seem to mind it too much.  For these last couple days we are camping at Campers Village at Cedar Point.  We have a great location right next to the pool and we can see one of the roller coasters from our campsite.  The campground is nice enough.  Other than the pool, it doesn’t have much to do in the campground and it doesn’t have any scheduled activities, but with Cedar Point right here there is plenty to do within walking distance.  Besides the park itself, there is also a water park, a go-cart track, miniature golf, a beach on Lake Erie and a few other things.  The one thing missing from this campground is campfires.  I can understand why they don’t want them since we’re right next to the theme park, but it’s not really camping if you don’t have a campfire.

After we arrived we spent the whole day at the pool. 

It was such a hot, hot day that the pool felt especially good.  There is also a splash area with tubes and buckets and stuff spraying the kids without having to be in the pool.  Jacob and Max hit the splash area right away while we were setting up camp.  It was great that we were right by the pool.   Playing with the kids in the pool now is very fun since Jake and Max are independent swimmers.  Ella grabbed a life vest that they had there and became an independent swimmer too (with the vest) so now we can play fun games in the pool.

Even after dinner Kyrie and the kids went back to the pool. Zoe and I took a walk around the peninsula. It was a longer walk than I expected, but it was nice. 

Jacob took out the park map and a pen to plan our day at Cedar Point tomorrow,  He circled the rides/coasters he thought he wanted to ride.  Someday he'll make a good ride designer and theme park tour guide!
