Yo Yo yeeeaaaaaaugh!

No, I wasn’t nuts enough to go on this, but I did ride the carousel with my daughter. Twice. Jump back, right?

She went on the ferris wheel, the carousel, a couple of kid-sized rollercoasters, and a gigantic potato-sack slide, but it was this ridiculously simple up-and-down-in-a-circle fish ride which evoked this I’m-so-happy-my-face-is-about-to-explode happiness in her every time she went on it. And that was three times.

Perhaps it’s the Octonaut influence.
