Summertime Fun

amusement park ride

Part of the ritual for the Summertime vacation
is enjoying rides at an amusement park.
And, a hidden part of that ritual, is getting dizzy,
losing our lunch and screaming in terror
while on that ride.

Roller Coaster Heaven

I avoid roller coasters except for the occasional photograph.

My idea of a thrill ride is a rocking chair.


amusement park ride, child, little girl

A summertime vacation ride at an amusement park
should be fun and exciting for a little girl.
So why is this little girl crying?
Because she doesn’t have the front seat on
this two person ride. Which goes to show,
even when you have everything you want,
disappointment is still a possibility.
