Mikko wasn't sure what he thought of the roller coaster…
…until he got on it. Then he went on it probably fifteen times in a row.
He still talks about it often, 3+ months later.
Don't let his expression fool you — that's his posing face, as you'll see.
Why does big brother get to have all the fun?
Fortunately there was a baby section.
And I was able to sneak Alrik onto a slow-going, mini-carousel with me by noncommittally answering the question of whether he could walk. (Real answer then: "Not far.")
Fortunately, he's a happy baby.
Thank goodness for babywearing to get around in a large, busy space!
It was Sam's turn to hold him, and my turn to ride…
Woo! Watch as I emote for both of us.
Mikko called these swings "monkey bobo swings," for no reason we could fathom, and insisted we also ride them a dozen times. Until I was dizzy enough.
Sitting up front to ring the bell!
(Alrik wasn't even allowed on this mini train here that went, like, 2 miles an hour.)
Good thing there were brothers around to tickle fight!
Clearly only one of us knows how to pose properly in a theme park photo op.
Yes, exactly, Alrik! That's how it's done.
That was a successfully amusing day.
I'm giving away 5 copies of Poetry of a Hobo Mama for my blogiversary!
