Amusement


In the midst of it all -- a day of normality! The clinic Vampboy is treated at held a summer festival for current and former patients and their families. VB had a few joyous firsts today: First kiddie-ferris wheel ride, first merry-go-round ride, and first ride on a pirate boat swing (above). It moved much faster that it looked, and I wasn't sure which one of us was going to make it without losing our lunch (I don't do amusement park rides very well). In the end, lunch stayed intact, and a perfect day was had by the Vampfamily.

I'll take it.

AHHHHHHHHHHHH! WHAT FUN!

And, that is an awesome photo. I'm glad you got to feel a day of normality...

Oh, & the older I get, the harder those rides are for me too. When I was a kid---practically fearless. Now, I'd puke on those big boat rides. Seriously.

normality...is that a word?
my brain is not quite "on" today...& I'm too lazy to get a dictionary.
