Ah, summer is over! Not officially, I know it’s not September 23rd yet, but for all intents and purposes. The kids are back at school, the tourists are gone, the weather is cooling off (well, sort of), and Funland is closing up shop! So SAD.
To enjoy the last hurrah of Summer’s Bounty, this past weekend while Kris and Craig were visiting, we took Ollie and their daughter, Emmeline, to Funland in Rehoboth Beach. The babies had a blast riding all the kiddie rides and getting jacked up on boardwalk delicacies like funnel cake and cotton candy while the four of us adults had enough people-watching to make a trip to Wal-Mart or the Circus seem boring. My only beef with the amusement park was that they didn’t let me go on the kiddie motorcycle ride with Ollie because, as an adult, I was “too big.” Nevermind they had a two ton ten-year-old denting the bikes with his giant ass right before I requested to ride (no joke this porker must have weighed in at 250), but I guess rules are rules.
So alas, now that it’s September, we’ll have to wait until next season to head back to Funland. And by that time, Ollie’s obsession with the Super “F*cks” will most likely have waned, or at the very least, he’ll be pronouncing the TR-sound in their name by then, which for some reason makes me sad to think about.
Though I love fall, it’s always hard to see summer go….
