Kiddieland marathon

We just got back from a six-hour marathon at our local amusement park, Kiddieland--a lovely "traditional" park that's an institution in Chicago. Elliot and Astrid went on all their favorite "scary" rides--the Little Dipper rollercoaster, the log ride, and waterslides--multiple times. (Of course, these rides aren't scary at all to Elliot, but he still enjoys himself.) Elliot was also generous enough to go with Astrid on any young children's rides that he could fit on--which made the whole experience that much better for Astrid.

I went on the Ferris Wheel twice--at Astrid's request--which was one more time than my stomach wanted. But I did OK. Now we're beat, beat, beat.
