Mr. Boy who won't ride ANYTHING other than the Monorail and Teacups at Disneyland RODE everything he could! This ride was one of those things where you think... I'm paying $6 bucks for my kids to sit in a plastic boat and go around in a circle. That is where I have to quiet my inner nerdy accountant with a funnel cake. Somewhere in this pic is my Mr. Boy's feet as he is spun around high in the air on this beautiful antique Carnival Swing. It was a GORGEOUS piece of art and the "carnie" told me the history of it. It was a work of art and was imported from Germany pre-war.
We walked AK home and Mr. Boy and I came back to indulge in some more rides. We stayed until closing time, which was hours after his bedtime, and walked home in the rain trying to catch raindrops on our tongues. I went to bed that night realizing, it's okay to bend the rules sometimes.... indulge the kids in some serious sugar, stay up way too late, and jump as hard as you can in the puddles.. for tommorrow the sun will come out and dry them up!
