My post title isn’t a typo or some sort of joke or pun. It is what Scarlet says in place of “ride.” She loves to go for rides these days. So much so that during a trip to an educational toy store in town, she took a tiny toy shopping basket off of the shelf, put it on the ground, looked at me and pleaded, “Go for wide?” I couldn’t actually fit her in the tiny basket, and even if I had, I wasn’t about to sail her around a tiny basket in a store full of people, but I applauded her creativity. I always do.
I managed to get some pictures of Scarlet going for rides. From a technical standpoint, these photos aren’t the best. However, I find them to be fantastically blurry and blurrily fantastic. Do you think she’ll grow up to love roller coasters?
First I just have to throw these in because they’re cute:
The theme park starts innocently enough with bumper cars.
Then we go on Tilt-a-Whirl. She brought along a “friend” (and a book and business card, for some reason) to clutch during the big turns, and also, as a cushion for when she swings forward.
Next time I’ll use an image stabilizer lens. But honestly, I find these to be ok, just the way they are.
