Starting around age 11, every year I would look forward to Memorial Day for one reason: Kings Dominion. I went every year, rain or shine until I was 19 or so. Looking back, I am SHOCKED my parents let me drive down on route 95 with my friends when I was 16 (no tickets or accidents, I just got lost).
I associate a lot of things with Kings Dominion: getting lost, new relationships, wet shoes, lines, funnel cake, white trash...
We went on Saturday with the fam and some friends and it is completely different with kids. Boo and Little Man had a great time on the rides, at the water park, and eating ice cream. Luckily we went with enough people that those who wanted to were able to ride some roller coasters (that's right, this third baby is going to be a thrill seeker). Plus, it's scary, but I actually have a child who can ride a roller coaster (well, S. says The Avalanche isn't a roller coaster, but I say it is!).
My line tolerance has also changed. I wouldn't even wait an hour to ride my favorite ride, The Volcano. An hour standing in line?!?! Crazy. I have better things to do with my time--like watch my kids laugh on the kid Beserker.
