This is one way to spend a Sunday afternoon...



Yep, that's me on the far left of the "Spring!" ride at our local amusement park. (It really deserves its exclamation point...) This was my first time on it, despite being season pass holders to this amusement park for the past two years, and Hubby had to capture the moment for posterity as he couldn't believe I was actually willingly partaking of this ride. (The kiddo, who rode the Spring! with me, had been on it before.)

In case you haven't read through my archives, I have a bit of a thing about heights. (Hence Hubby's astonishment at my willingness to get on this contraption.) I'd like to say I was brave and confident enough to make it through the approximately 2 minutes that the Spring! bounces up and down and up and down and up and down.........


Sorry the close-up is a bit grainy - Hubby was shooting with our new camera for the first time and was playing around with various settings. However, even with the fuzziness, I believe you can still clearly see that yes, I am screaming my fool head off.

The things we do for fun........

(The Spring! still beats going on the Tilt-A-Whirl or the Spinning Teacups, both of which fall squarely in Hubby's domain.)

Oh you brave, brave woman. My teen son has been begging me to go on our theme parks version, Tower of Doom, with him. No Way!

I've been on rides like Spring! and they certainly aren't my favorite. I do like the Tilt-a-Whirl though, and pretty much any roller coaster I can get on. =)

Wow--amusement park rides kinda scare me. I guess you could say I'm just a big ol' Fraidy Cat! Looks like you had a lot of fun--and that's what it's all about, right?

Mayet said...

Heather LOL at your close-up piccie and so impressed you did this! I also have a fear of heights and pigs would fly before I'd do this!

Thanks for calling in on a fellow SITSta!

OMG, I would have been screaming my head off too! That looks exciting, but pee-in-your-pants scary too.

Thanks for visiting me on my SITS day Monday!

You couldn't pay me enough money to do this... It scares the daylights out of me!

Thanks for stopping by yesterday and for your nice comments.

Good luck packing on your trip to Florida!
