Last week Zayd and I made a duo-trip to Kiddie Park before the place got too hoppin with summer tots and the weather got so hot you'd rather die than sit on a hot metal toddler boat. He is still only big enough to ride the carousel but this time I let him ride on the horse instead of sitting on a bench seat with mom. Granted, I think he hated the freedom, and I was technically holding him on the horse the whole time, but it's still a sign that he is growing up. Before you know it, he'll pick his own carousel horse and ride without fear - one of Kiddie Park's famous 100 year old carved wooden horsies, that is.
