Exploring SC: Frankie’s Fun Park

I took Thursday and Friday afternoons off while my guests were here, and we visited one of the three Greenville County water parks,  Otter Creek. We had a great time until we were chased away by a thunderstorm that caused them to clear the park. No photos taken at the water park, so that’s all you’re hearing about that (same for our trip to a second water park a few days later).

On Friday afternoon, we decided to take enormous truckloads of money to Frankie’s Fun Park, where they were exchanged for a minor and temporary reduction in whining and complaining. Really, it was fun, but it was expensive.

We began our visit to Frankie’s with outside activities, trying to get those out of the way before things got too warm. We offered the girls chances to drive the go-karts, but they opted for bumper boats instead. Aly took a boat solo, and Rachel took pictures of Leah and I getting squirted by Aly.

From there, we headed to miniature golf course #1 and played all 18 holes.

Thankfully, Frankie’s has plenty of those. I believe I’ve mentioned this before, but our girls both have an obsession with plush. I’ve also mentioned this before as well, but Aly has a very strong skill at crane games. You can see where this is going.

Aug_07_2015__MG_9358 Aug_07_2015__MG_9363 Aug_07_2015__MG_9367Overall, Frankie’s was a lot of fun and a lot of money.

I’m sure we’ll do it again.
