As God As My Witness, I'll Never Ride A Dinosaur Ride Again


When Lamb was 6 yrs. old, we had a family reunion in Florida. We are never one to pass up opportunities so we made a side trip to Universal Studios: Islands of Adventure. Lamb just had to ride the Jurassic Park water ride. All was going well until we got to the big drop. All of a sudden, the huge T-Rex appeared in front of us, mouth wide open. Poor Lamb was traumatized. Thank the heavens above that the man sitting next to her is her uncle!
Because you can never traumatize your kids enough, we did it again when Bear was 6. Once again, we used the opportunity of already being in Florida & hit Disney this time. At Animal Kingdom, Bear wanted to ride the Dinosaur ride. I have NO recollection of it whatsoever. All I remember is how scared Bear was during the entire thing. When we saw our picture, we knew we had to buy it. Again, thank the heavens above that Big D had a grip on Bear or he would have been outta there! And, poor Lamb, was right there beside the big huge dinosaur that was waiting to gobble us. I guess I should have researched the ride, but what a great memory! Click on the pictures to really see the expressions.
Lamb has now declared that she will never again, as long as she lives, ride another dinosaur type ride. Never.Ever.Again.

That second picture is THE BEST! I crack up every time I see it! I don't know which kid is funnier - Lamb with that look on her face or Bear trying to escape!

Good parenting always involves terrorizing your kids.
