"For the last two years I've been told isn't nice to hit things. So you can imagine my confusion when I was handed this red bat and told to smack the pretty unicorn (which I had just finished petting a few moments earlier)."

Kennywood '08

Evelyn was very excited to go to Kennywood this year. We had to start by taking a picture in front of Garfield, just to compare it to the one from last year.

Soon we were off to the fish pond. It's twice as expensive now, but the prizes are twice as good. Evy had fun catching fish all by herself.

She kept going right from one ride to another, steering everything from helicopters to motorcycles to bi-planes, but I think Evy had the most fun on the Auto Ride. She enjoyed being the driver while her parents took turns holding on tight in the back seat.

Trust me, that thing goes faster than you think. Especially with Evy at the wheel.
