On one of the overcast days, we went to the Boardwalk. We walked up and down. Little Miss couldn't stop looking everywhere. Then, she took a nap and we continued to walk. When she woke up, we had lunch. During lunch, she was mesmerized by the kiddie rides. We weren't sure she could ride on any because we weren't sure she would stay seated or like being strapped down. She'd also have to ride alone. So, we figured we could take her on the carousel. She wasn't sure she enjoyed it, but she stayed seated and Husband could ride alongside her for safety purposes. We were very proud of our big girl. Next year, she can ride most of the rides and I'm sure she'll love them.
Later, we took her to the Boardwalk at night. If she liked it during the day, she'd love all the lights and noise and people at night. She was super tired, but she loved looking at everything. We noticed on one of the kiddie rides that the parents were allowed to sit on a bench in the inner cylinder while the children rode the cars and trucks circling. So, we strapped Little Miss in while I sat a foot or so away from her. She had a lot of fun - though towards the end, she wanted to change cars and didn't like that she was strapped in. Then, because it was her first trip to the Boardwalk, Brother-in-Law, Sister-in-Law, Husband, Little Miss and I all shared a funnel cake. She liked it, but she had more self-restraint than all of us and stopped eating after only a few bites. She fell asleep in the car ride home and barely woke as we got her up to the hotel room.
