Do you ride the rides?

I like taking my kids to the local theme park and water parks. Sometimes I will ride things with them, but other times I sit it out. The main reason I sit it out is because I worry that I will hurt my back or something, haha. I sound like an old lady, right?

Do you like theme parks rides and water rides? Would you ride with your kid(s) if they wanted you to?

    It has been a long time since we went to theme parks or water rides. Some of them, but not all of them. I love water parks so those wouldn't be an issue for me. I don't care for heights so I'd go on ones close to the ground.

      I only go on rides at real theme parks, not the moving carnivals. I feel the moving carnival rides are not as safe. I always ride with my kids, or my husband does. Maybe when they get older we will let them ride on their own.

            I would! I hope to! My husband is afraid of tall things, so that will be more riding for us!

              Pre-pregnancy I rode the rides at the amusement park and festival. We're going to a water park tomorrow, and I'm ONLY wading in the pool or doing some really swimming. I'm so close to delivering that I'm afraid that if something bad happens that could've been prevented, I will be overwhelmed with guilt and grief and will have a hard time letting go. Today, for instance, I had on my new water socks, and I stayed in the very, very shallow part of the river where water did not go past my ankles. I sat down and cooled myself off with some river water. I refused to go further out due to possibly slips, etc.

                Even when we are able to go, I get to be the one to stand with the stuff and take pictures from afar. I have horrible motion sickness, and I think the girls might be following suit.
