This was Ashlyn and me getting off of the Enterprise. How funny is it that the other riders are all 12 year old boys? When I was 15 I once rode the Enterprise 7 times in a row at Myrtle Beach Pavilion. It was my favorite ride and boy was I proud of that record. I'm not going to lie, riding rides at 36 is a liiiiiiittle different...I was walking sideways for a while but it was worth it!
That's Ed (Ashlyn's husband, and J, her son) watching us relive our youth. My boys were off riding a choo choo train with daddy!
Speaking of my boys they had a blast too and rode tons of rides. Here's Little C and J riding the superman flying thingie. He loved it! I can't believe I have such a big boy.
Little C is in the picture above farthest to the right. He wasn't a big fan of the swings and I never have been either. He actually started crying when the ride started up and it was the worst feeling ever to see him scared and not be able to help him (they wouldn't let me ride with him because of my flip-flops). (And I should mention it's the first time we've ever let him ride something like this by himself.) I wanted to tackle the ride operator and stop the thing but Mr. C calmed me down. We all survived thankfully, my little guy settled down, and we even got a good picture out of it. But we won't be doing that again.
The Tilt-a-whirl operator let all five of us pile into one car. We were spinning so fast I was seriously afraid of losing my cookies. So fun but Lordy, this one hurt me.
The boys' favorite ride by far was the kiddie coaster--looooved it! It's so fun to watch them together. I really wish I could freeze them at these ages.
I did get one ferris wheel picture but I still want a night time one. Hopefully I'll get another chance this week!
We ended the day with lemonade for the boys and Blue Moons for the old people. Can't wait to go again!
