Great American Summer

This spring the kids and I got season passes to Great America, which is not too far away. We like to go to fun places on our long Wednesday afternoons when school is in session, and we went nearly weekly this summer break—it feels so early to be wrapping up summer, but they go back Monday!

Note: I snapped a bunch of photos along the way and will share ‘em here, en masse. They’re all instagrams, about which I feel ambivalence. I like that I didn’t have to worry about the “big mama” camera when I had to relinquish my possessions more or less unattended while I was on a ride or worry that I’d be knocking it around a lot. However, they’re not the best photos. I decided since the photos will not be technically the same as I’d take otherwise, to have fun with it, playing with oddball (i.e. imperfect composition, when we only had one shot to conserve film) photos and filters just for fun. C’est la vie.

I’m really happy about buying the season tickets, overall. If he wears the “right” shoes, Cole is 48” by their measuring pole, and can ride anything he wants. It’s amazing what he does want to ride—and with enjoyment! Sometimes I have to hold onto his hand, more for me than him. :)
