So this past weekend, we were lucky enough to have a three day weekend. So, we packed the kids up and headed 'north'. To New Hampshire. Us and 8287218128128582010 and 2 other people. People LOVE to go look at the leaves...and drive..real slow to do so.
We headed up Saturday and were too early to check in to the hotel so we went further up the road towards Mount Washington and stopped at Wildcat. They have this very cool Zipline called the ZipRider. Little March and I did it. (here is a youtube clip of what it is like) Oh..not shot by me either.
Littlest March was too little to do that so we took the gondola to the summit and walked around some. To be one with nature as they say.
Saturday was the return to Storyland. It was okay, but both kids are almost just too old for it. Sure we did most of the rides, but the lines were so damn long..it never seemed like that before (see your opening lines there Mr. March). I didn't have the camera and Mrs March would not let me take a picture of my favoite signs of the weekend. In on of the attractions there are these foam balls that shoot all over the place. Its really fun. Well, you can get canvas bags to help you collect the balls easier..there is a sign near the entrance where the bags are kept.
"Place Ball Bags Here"
Awesome. Mrs March wouldn't have over the camera. I dare not search for it..but trust me..its there.
Also, at this "mostly geared towards kids under 5" theme park was one..umm...dad..wearing a t-shirt that had the old "shocker" hand sign and it read
"Shocker her...with your Shocker".*
Thank gods my kids didn't ask. Seriously? Is this the ONLY t-shirt you had?
*again, look this up on your own if you are not sure..
Monday we puttered around and sat in traffic. What a weekend.
Oh..and I celebrated my 12th Wedding Anniversary. Thanks for putting up with me Mrs. March..even though you called me a grumpy old man when I wanted to hit the road at 10:30 am yesterday.
