With some friends from Koji's school, we went to Kiddieland The only bummer thing about it was, the coupons we were excited to use had expired. Otherwise, it was a great day!

First stop, merry go round.

A large section of the place was devoted to rides for tiny kids; even Izumi, at just over two, could ride alone, which was exciting for me.

I wish I had taken a picture of this whole Ferris wheel, but even if I had, I guess it would be difficult to appreciate how small and cute it was. Again, the kids loved it. The other moms and I just stood watching and cracking up because the guy running the ride seemed to have no rhyme or reason to the way he let the kids on and off the ride. Koji and Izumi got quite an extended ride, while other kids went for a couple of revolutions and were ejected. I'm still laughing thinking about it now.

All of the tiny kid rides I mentioned seemed to be some sort of mini transport that kids could sit in while said vehicle spun around a central hub. Plane, train, name it and the kids got to "drive" in a circle on it!

After lunch, which consisted of food that we had to buy from Kiddieland concessions (note to self, next time get your hand stamped and go eat lunch in the car or even at Denny's across the street...their food is NOT good...), we moved to another section of the park which consisted of a giant play structure and a couple of self propelled rides. This was one; Koji and Izumi sat on the raft and Koji pulled them back and forth across the "pond" with the rope.

After a water ride and a sit on a "proper" Ferris wheel, I was done, so I projected that the kids were too and we called it a day. I'm glad we went and I would like to go again next summer!
