Dollar General Picnic

Today was the Dollar General Family Picnic. This year we went to Beech Bend Park. It's an amusement park in Bowling Green, KY. They also have an area called Splash Lagoon, but we didn't go into that area. We got to the park and road a few rides, ate lunch, and rode more rides. The kids had a blast. Alex is centimeters from the height requirement to ride all the rides. But Janie rode them all and had a blast. She got to ride the Sea Dragon which was purchased last year from Michael Jackson's Neverland Ranch. She thought that was pretty cool.

We took a break from some rides to go play bingo, which is always a hit at the picnic. Check out our loot!

We got a DG fleece blanket. A DG racing golf umbrella. A camouflage DG Racing cap. A travel coffee cup, and a DG racing helmet that is for chip and dip. And Janie got a Nike Golf Polo that is from the Dollar General 300. I say we made out pretty well.

After bingo we rode even more rides. Last but not least we went to the petting zoo, and got to feed some goats. Janie is definitely prissy. She cried so much about the goat with the horns that even the people working there were calling her by name. I'm not sure we will ever let her live it down! It was a great day. We are all worn out and ready for bed.

Can't wait till next year!
