|This is an actual wave from Saturday.|
It's about a 3 hour drive down the lovely Garden State Parkway from my house to Wildwood. 3 hours in the car with a 5 year old is lots of fun.
It's worth the ride, if for no other reason than for the snacks. In the 48 hours we were there, I indulged in ice cream, a sausage peppers & onion sandwich, fried Oreos and funnel cake. Also on this trip, I found out my bathing suit, the shorts kind that are so popular now, doesn't really fit and every time I bent over the button popped open. That was also fun.
Friday night was pretty chilly and though I packed enough stuff to be away for a month, I forgot to bring a sweatshirt. You can't get a plain sweatshirt down there for less than $25 and the Boardwalk is lousy with places that will iron on decals for about a zillion dollars per inch. I managed to find a discount rack of discards for $5. I was able to pick up this gem. My husband then proceeded to speak to me in a brogue for the rest of the trip.

The Boardwalk has lots of rides too. Nathan is trying very hard to overcome his fear of rides. He tried a new one this time around. It was an oval track and he was in a rainbow race car. When the car took the first turn though, the boy was whipped around and freaked out. He screamed so loudly that the chick working the ride actually stopped the ride. I felt badly that he got so scared after I told him it would be fun. I had to retrieve him and carry him off. I said, "Oops!" to the woman giving me the stink-eye as he sobbed into my shoulder, but she was unsympathetic. It's not like they didn't restart the ride for the other kids. Sheesh.
