Leaps and Bounds

It is hard to believe it has been three years since we attended my company picnic at Rye Playland. Last time around, in 2007, LP was a new walker and not really interested/scared to death of most rides. Oh, how things have changed!

Last night, despite the threatening weather, the Hoos picked up the girls and met me at the amusement park for not-so-great food but lots of fun. Fortunately, we had wristbands which qualified us for unlimited ride, because LP could not get enough. She was pleased as punch that she could be independent on most rides in "Kiddyland" and ran off of one ride and on to the next. Because of the overcast skies (which fortunately did not turn into rain while we were there) the park was mostly deserted and many times she was the only kid on the the ride.

AK was pretty adventurous, but, alas, she did not meet the height requirements for most rides and there were only a handful she could go on with an adult. I was that adult. Most of the rides in Kiddyland that could accommodate me were spinny rides. Let's just say it was a good thing the food wasn't so great and I didn't eat much.

Next time the Hoos gets the unlimited ride bracelet and I get the spectator one.
