Of joy rides, fun times and childhood

I am back to childhood times, thanks to R and S, my niece. This weekend was full of joy rides for the kids and going back to fun times for the adults. There is a small lake near our house which has been turned to a small amusement park for kids with some boating and other small-time joy rides thrown in for a very reasonable fee. So, that was our outing for Saturday evening. Popcorns and excited and joyous laughter from the kids made it a very happy affair and my sister and I had unadulterated fun by reliving our carefree days through our children.



We woke up early on Sunday morning, had an early breakfast and headed off to another popular amusement park near by. The kids totally freaked out on all the joy rides. R frolicked around the well-maintained park areas meant to relax under chickoo trees that made a lovely green and cool canopy. It was amusing to see him run after crows in a bid to catch them! S and he had a rocking time playing around in the mud and making the most out of the few rare times when interference from the adults was a bare minimum :-)

 Chickoos....

A village scene carved out at the amusement park.



A dinosaur park- a sad one at that-had statues of different kinds of dinosaurs placed like in a sanctuary. There was also some sound effects thrown in for good measure to make it seem real! However, the effect was quite contrary to probably what was planned.


 The source of the blood curdling noises..LOL!

  
So, that sums up our weekend fun time. Hope you guys had a great weekend!
Happy Monday :-)
