Today I took Tenley to Castle Park in Riverside while Mommy got to have some alone time at home for Mother’s Day. I figured since she had to work tonight that the least we could do was to leave her alone all day.
Tenley has talked about Castle Park for more than a year now. Every time we drive by on the freeway she yells, “There’s Castle Park. Am I big enough to go there?” They have lots of fair type rides that are perfect for her and I got her an unlimited bracelet for the rides. She went on the carousel, castle taxi, the train, flying airplanes and the tilt-a-whirl. The tilt-a-whirl was for bigger kids so I had to go with her on that one. Turns out that the tilt-a-whirl is almost too much for me these days but Tenley giggled through the whole ride and wanted to go again and again. After the ride was over while I was looking for my stomach, Tenley decided it was time for cotton candy. Let’s see, little breakfast consumed, no other food in our system…yeah, cotton candy sounds good.
