Yesterday was a good day

Every September Mike's company has a family fun day at a local amusement park. Usually Mike and I go and ride roller coasters all day. We eat tons of food and drink lots of soda. We inevitably find at least one poor sap that shows up in his buisness suit and have a laugh at his expense. We usually have a grand ol' time. And it's a completely free day.


We knew this year, our first with a baby in tow, would be different. We didn't even know if Will would be able to ride anything. But we figured it would be a fun way to spend a Sunday. So we went.

We walked around and met some new friends.

We found a kiddie ride and decided to give it a try. I strapped Will in, and, since he seemed fine with the whole thing, took my place OUTSIDE THE FENCE.
Photobucket Around and around he went. All the while Mike and I stood there clapping and yelling and waving. Our cheeks hurt from smiling so much. We were so proud of our big boy.

Photobucket There were no smiles. But there was no screaming either. Success!

We found another ride for him to try. This time Will rode with a little girl.

Why isn't she smiling? Um, probably because Will kept pulling her hair.

A family ride on the antique cars.

And, of course, the carousel.

The day started off cloudy and rather yuck, but by afternoon the sun was out. It was a different kind of amusement park experience for us, but, yeah, it was a good day.

Until next year...

And look who was waiting for us to get home...
