Amy and I took 3-year old Andrew to his first amusement park yesterday - Lakeside amusement park in Denver. Going to Lakeside is like stepping back in time to 1968, which is about the last time they installed any new rides at this place. It's so out of date now, it's almost hip almost hip again. Almost, but not quite.
We paid $4 entrance for the three of us, and then bought ride tickets at 50 cents a piece. Andrew loved the ferris wheel, which he rode with mom and dad, and also liked the various kiddie rides whick are all some minor variation of plastic or fiberglass vehicles going in a circle: planes, bugs, spaceships, etc. He rode the kiddie roller coaster by himself also. He was a bit scared for the first few trips around, then started smiling, but then looked a little overwhelmed as it kept going for another 4 or 5 cycles.
