Why would parents walk around for 12 hours in the heat without a drink in their hand? To see their kids smile. A few weekends ago we took a trip to Idlewild Park. We took Owen last year, but I don’t think it was as hot as it was this year. Last year Owen loved all of the smaller rides as well as Storybook Forest. This year he still loved all the rides, but he didn’t like Storybook Forest because he said there were monsters in the houses. Not sure where that came from.
Owen was really excited about all of the rides this year. He pretty much rode everything he could in the park, including the Ferris wheel with mommy. I thought that I would be ok with riding it, but I kept thinking that something bad was going to happen. The ride lasted so long, kept stopping, and Owen kept moving because he wanted to see everything. Needless to say, I’m not a fan of the Ferris wheel. Maybe next year he can bring a friend to ride all of the rides with him.
