On the Fly: Young at Heart
As I mentioned in my previous post, I have family visiting. Yesterday, we took my young niece and nephew to a local amusement park known as Storybook Land. Once you walk through the doors flanked by toy soldiers, you're in a beautiful wooded area. The theme? Mother Goose rhymes. The fun? Kiddie rides, animated characters, and a few fun critters.
My five-year old niece conquered every ride, some of them twice. My two-year old nephew was fond of the merry-go-round and monster trucks. My sister and brother-in-law traded off riding with them and even I (who gets motion sick) braved a few spins. The most fun for me was watching them have fun. I'll try to share some pictures later. Just now I'm squeezing in writing before work.
Tonight: I wanted my sister and brother-in-law to have a night to explore the casinos. That means I'll be watching the kids. My plan? An at-home movie and popcorn. Wish me luck!
What have you done lately to entertain young ones?
