Fort Rapids Family VacationEvery year, my family tries to get together to go on a family vacation. We always went on a vacation each year growing up, so it's nice to be able to continue this tradition now that we're adults. It's one of the few times that my sisters, their children, and my parents get together, since everyone has their own families now. Below are a few of my favorite pics from our trip to the Fort Rapids waterpark in Columbus . :)

|A few effects added in Pixlr-o-Matic really capture how Phoenix felt when he had to leave the waterpark...|
and his family.
It was tough getting Phoenix to leave the fun of his cousins & the waterpark. So, instead of saying goodbye, we waved as we left, saying, "See you later." It's better to leave with the thought that you'll be back. And, we all had such a great time that I think we might be back sooner rather than later :)
