Costco Family Fun

One of the perks of working at Costco is that Andrew has the opportunity to be a part of their "employee club." He pays dues of a couple dollars a month and then when they have events/activities we can go for free. It works out great! This year when the store was closed for Labor Day they hosted an event at Mt Hood Ski bowl. We got free lunch and then free 2-hour passes for the "rides." The highlight of the place was of course the Alpine Slides. Andrew, Adrian, and Luke spent some time on that while I took the littles over to where there were some younger rides. It was one of those things where, for what it was it was a lot of fun; however, if we were paying full price I don't know that I would do it...I'm kind of a cheap skate though!
There were pony rides (with the most enthusiastic teen ever running it...note my sarcasm.)

Reagan especially loved this one because she is totally going to be a cowgirl when she grows up.

There was a canoe ride (Jonathan kept trying to stand up in the canoe when he thought we weren't looking!)

A mechanical swing ride (that at first Jonathan refused to go on since he was sure it was only for babies.)

There were a lot of other rides too: bouncy house (more like little tent), rock climbing wall, trampoline bungy jumping, go karts, and a "fun house." I pretty much stuck with the littles while Andrew and the big boys ran around trying to do as much as possible in our allotted time period.
When it was time to go Reagan was in a grouchy mood, but still darn cute!
We had a lot of fun with our last hurrah before school was to start the next day!
