Quite The Ride!

This was the perfect escape from our cold and snowy winter.
But why is Eldest looking so uncertain?

It's just a little boat ride.
Just like a baby swing...

 But Eldest is anything but a baby.

 So Middlest talked her into a real swing.

A Merry Go Round and Swing in one!

Have I ever told you all that I get terrible motion sickness?
Well I do.
The Agronomist found out about it on our honeymoon...
at the Universal Studio's Back To The Future ride : )
It is amazing what you learn about each other once you get married.

It would seem that maybe Eldest might take after her mother.
While the lighting made her look a little yellow, she was feeling more green.
She was out for the rest of the day.

The two younger ones decided to give it a go on their own.
They had already sat down once, had a change of mind, and got out before the ride began.
Tears were shed over what to do.
I told them it was going to be fun.
Loads of fun.
Fun, fun, fun!
(I just forgot to mention that I've never been on a roller coaster... oops.)

I wonder if they realized there was no turning back?
They were so brave.
I wonder if they minded I was screaming calling for them to hold on tight?

 Really, really tight.

 Smiles are a good sign, right?

Looks of terror?  
Maybe not so good.

They made it.
I could breath.
Breathing felt good.

My babies... getting off the roller coaster all in one piece.
It's all a mother can ask for.

It was quite the ride.

For both of us ; )

  1. Fun! Those swings get me every time. I used to be fine going around in circles...

  2. I got dizzy just looking at the pictures!!

  3. I get sick on every ride now. That's just one of the long list of annoying things about getting older!


  4. FUN!

    I love to do these things.

    It's grabbing life before it's all gone.

  5. This is a wonderful way to spend a cold day!

  6. ok, what IS this amazing indoor amusement park?! how fun is that?! i'm envious - this would be perfect for us with the winter we're having this year ;-)

  7. LOL!!!! I get dizzy on a regular swing now....and I used to go on the BIG roller coaster there.......and I'd twist myself up on those swings so I'd not only swing around, I'd twirl.....

  8. Wow...that first picture is crazy good! I felt a little motion sick after looking at it! Looks like a fun place!

  9. Good heaves, what shutter speed were you using??

    Those are brilliant shots.

    I can barely get a decent picture of a sleeping cat.

  10. Love this - but very dizzy now. oy.

  11. This is wonderful! So glad they survived. I must say I have that motions sickness thing too. Found an underground roller coaster, and I loved it! I couldn't see anything! How perfect is that ?

  12. Your pictures make it all so real. I think I may be sick to my stomach too. I used to like roller coasters. Never loved them, but I could handle them. Then I had children. And that messed up my ear equalibrium or something...because when I spin them around in my arms I almost fall over from dizzy. I have 4 boys. What am I gonna do? Send Hubs. Looks like a lot of fun...for 2 of them at least.

  13. Those pictures are ALL crazy good! What wonderful memories!

  14. What a great escape from the cold!

  15. I'm with you and the eldest....but glad the others seemed to like it all. Cute Q post:)

  16. That looks like a lot of fun :) I love riding the rides but they also terrify me since I have a slight problem with the heights thing. Wondering now if I can still do coasters after having E....I guess I should find out :)

  17. you always always make me smile!

  18. I'm a speed freak, so I'd be out there with your two youngest. :-D

  19. Looks like quite a fun day!

  20. Woohoo I just love a good ride!!! What a fun time ya'll had...the faces in your great pictures say it all!!!

    God bless ya and have a warm fuzzy kinda day sweetie!!!

  21. I'm with you and eldest...not a fan of the rides!!!

  22. Great pictures! Your oldest daughters face in the first picture is priceless.

  23. I used to be able to handle spinning rides like the tilt-a-whirl in my younger days. Now, not so much. Sigh. Your girls are beautiful, by the way.

  24. poor Eldest!
    ps my husband is afraid of roller coasters! I have to go alone ;)

  25. Great photos and I felt like I was there too! Poor Eldest!

  26. quite exciting and dizzy to me...

    have fun with these rides.

  27. This was quite a stop on our little journey through Alphabe-Thursday's letter "Q"!

    I would love to ride on this.

    And the happy colorful pictures just made me smile.

    Thanks for a fun visit!


  28. O Wheee! Quite the day! Have to admit I get a little "green" after these rides too ;)

  29. Yikes! I got woozy just looking at the pictures! It looks like they had a lot of fun there!
