A couple of weeks ago we went to my dad’s company picnic at a cool place called Remlinger Farms, Northeast of Seattle. The kids were extra excited, especially since they heard there was a roller coaster for them to ride on.
As they were standing in line awaiting their turn, both were talking about how excited they were to go on this roller coaster. The hubby and I decided to let them go without adult supervision – mostly because the hubby really doesn’t like roller coasters (I’m pretty sure his fear of heights has something to do with that, although the diminutive size of this particular roller coaster might not have been an issue).
I was going to ride with the kids, but since since that left an odd man out, I suggested they ride together – it would, after all, be both of their first time, and I would have a chance to take pictures to commemorate the occasion.
After we escorted them to the gate, the hubby and I hurried back through the crowd to find a good vantage point for picture taking. I found a great spot to catch them on two different sections fairly clearly. First time around, here they come:
Look at Little Dude’s face, though:
I couldn’t stop giggling at the look on his face, especially with Princess Nagger’s expressions being polar opposite. Once the ride finally came to an end, we met them at the exit:
Princess Nagger (bursting with excitement): “That was awesome!!”
Me: “Was it worth the wait?”
Me (to Little Dude): “So, how’d you like your first roller coaster ride?”
Little Dude: “Hated it!!”
I suspect he won’t be going on any roller coaster rides in the near future, no matter how small the ride actually is. Princess Nagger, on the other hand, can’t wait to move up to the larger ones.
Are you Team Nagger (love roller coasters) or Team Little Dude (hate ’em!)?
