(Can you tell which child in the photo above is being uncooperative? That would be mine – ahem.)
The Boardwalk is a magical place.
Pizza and caramel popcorn and salt water taffy and then a bunch of crazy rides to make you throw all that delicious food up.
I felt like a kid again – seriously, some of the rides that my boys went on were rides that I went on as a kid. Not even kidding. And my mom went on them when SHE was a kid. I was tempted to ask guest services questions about the reliability of said rides, but thought, hey, why ruin the magic?
I was surprised that Happy Buddy went on so many thriller rides… He has always been quite cautious about trying new things. Especially new things that drop suddenly or spin in circles for extended amounts of time. His only condition was that I ride with him and of course I was like, “Aw no, I would rather not have any fun.” 😉
The only disappointing thing about the Boardwalk was that it was probably 150% humidity and my growing hair could have almost qualified as another theme park attraction.
Now that we are home, the boys ask me only 1400 times a day if we can go back and I tell them that one day we will go back and then one day after that they will go back and bring their own kids to the boardwalk.
But by then I imagine the rides will be so old they will have probably disintegrated.
I hope y’all had a happy 4th of July!
