On Saturday, we packed up the car and headed to western Pennsylvania to meet up with my Mom and Dad in Ligonier, PA.  It is almost as exact to in between us and them as you can get making a good meeting spot.  And there's a park there so we made a trip out of it.

Idlewild is perfect for the 2-year-old set.  Aaron and I both described it as quaint and they have a large area dedicated to rides for little guys Nate's age.  I was bummed we didn't get to see Mr. Roger's Neighborhood (broken trolley) but we'll hit it up next time.

Nate's favorite attractions:
Watching other people ride the log flume.  Every time someone came down the big hill, he'd yell, "Mas!"

The potato sac slide with his Dad.  Notice he's holding his little arms in the air.

Riding the train.

And "driving" the cars.

He was also a huge fan of the jacuzzi tub in the hotel room Saturday night.

After we left on Sunday morning, Nate headed home with Grandma and Papa for a Bear's Vacation this week.  They'll bring him back on Friday so we can celebrate the big T-W-O.


  1. mimi really enjoyed her visit with him on tuesday. she kept saying, "that nate, he's a busy one!" with a chuckle.
    matthew had a lot of say in the decision making for his bday gifts. we hope that he likes them!

    1. Matthew did a great job, Nate loved them! We've watched Thomas a million times already.
