We had such a great time on Louisey's first visit to Idlewild Park. It was POURING for the first two hours we were there, but I had already made up my mind that morning. We were going to be a brave family, not a family of weenies who is scared of the rain.
Scouty could ride practically everything there. She even totally stepped outside of her comfort zone and agreed to ride things that scared her. She went on the roller coaster, caterpillar, the spider, the howler and the scrambler. She hated the roller coaster and the spider, but loved everything else. It was like I could see her self-esteem being boosted each time she conquered a new ride fear. She's the best and I'm so outstandingly proud of her.
The moment of the day that totally got me teary eyed, though, was Louise's first ride on a carousel horse. No more sitting in the boring old people seat with mommy. She was a total big girl.
The park is so big, we didn't make it to Story Book Forest or the water park before they closed. We could easily spend two days there.
How's your summer list coming along?
