Canobie Lake Park

Tuesday, August 4th 2015

In an amazing turn of fate, I was able to accompany the kids on their annual day camp amusement park outing.  Color me IN!

Upon arrival, le Rendezvous:

Happy Campers


Then we’re off!  Gavin takes me strait to “Zero Gravity.”  The best part is listening to him repeatedly yelling “AWE-SOME!!!” the whole time.  (Watching the clouds whirl around  in circles overhead is also pretty sweet.)

Then it’s a series of boingy-boingy and twirly-whirly things for me and the boys, while ClaraJane peels off with Daddy in tow to pursue rides better suited to the sensibilities of one who is not yet 48″ tall.

Kiddie Canoes, for example


Including some that permit one who is yet 81″ tall:

Girl & her Imaginary Friend


The boys meanwhile exceed the 48″ tall requirement:

DUH!  Pfffft… ***OB-viously***


So they get to do this:

My nephew behind the wheel


As I feel my future flash before my eyes:

My son behind the wheel


At least the girl isn’t ready to drive yet.  Wait:

Born Ready



No SIR.  They are TOO YOUNG.  That would be against the LAW.  They must face JUSTICE.  Public humiliation even;

they are filled with…

They are filled with Fried Dough.

They are filled with Fried Dough

Some major splash n’ play time around “Castaway Island” water park… then God sends down his own waterworks (and fireworks too)… and it’s time to beat our retreat.

We'll be back!

But first, more Fried Dough


It’s possible that from the whole day, my favorite ride was the bus trip up;

Girl + Monkeys

Girl + Monkeys


Endless entertainment.  In any case, we’ll be back!

    Gosh, everything gets bigger and more elaborate — the cars, the fried dough.
    Thanks for the Travelogue; I feel like I was along for the trip.
    If the kids don’t go next year, will grownups be allowed to go on the camp field trip to Canobie Lake as “unaccompanied seniors”?
    Getting rained out was probably a blessing — everyone had to leave before they were completely exhausted.
