Riding in style in Cinderella’s pumpkin carriage
Mike took a Friday afternoon off work, and we made the three-hour drive up to Story Land. We got a hotel courtesy of Mike’s business travel hotel points, and had a great time Saturday as well before driving home at closing on Saturday. The kids had a wonderful time – it’s the perfect park for their age range! Somehow they had the energy to stay awake for all but the final hour of the drive home…
In the car, on the way to Story Land:
Johnny: Daddy, are those your sunglasses?
Johnny: Where are your moonglasses?
At the dinner table:
Johnny: I wish K and A (friends who are 4yo twin girls) were boys. Then I could play with them.
Mama: You can play with them even though they are girls.
Johnny: I don’t play with girls. I don’t like girls.
Dada: Girls are better than ice cream.
Johnny: But I don’t very like to eat girls. I don’t like to eat people. Cause people are icky.
At Story Land, waiting – somewhat impatiently – to ride the Whirling Whales:
Lily (holding out her hand): Whales, stop! I made a stop sign!
As we’re driving home:
Emma: When can we go to Story Land Again?
Lily on her favorite ride: the antique hand-carved German carousel at Story Land, where the horses rock instead of going up and down.
