It was the end of the day after our visit to the Dinosaur Park on Sunday. We’d given in to double-nagging & had stopped off at the play area.
It was a trike racing track for 3- to 6-year-olds, a bit like MotoGP viewed through one of those extreme slow-motion cameras.
It was actually quite funny, in a cute sort of way.
Children were getting their vehicles stuck on the scenery, & on each other, & were having a lot of trouble trying to work out how to free themselves.
Then of course there’s the inevitable child who, for no apparent reason, is determined to go around the wrong way, causing chaos as they go.
Ours being at the lower end of the age-scale I had to intervene several times!
Ellie in particular really took to it & was zooming around (slowly) like a pro. Jake didn’t really get the hang of it: which is odd, as it’s the other way around with their trikes at home.
Jake ended up manning the petrol pumps, although he was a bit remiss at taking payment from his customers!
A family with 2 children came in after us, with 1 child older than the other. Only the younger one went in as the older child was over the age limit.
The Mummy explained.
“So what am I supposed to do? Just stand here?!” was the response.
“Yes. Welcome to my world.”
Couldn’t have put it better myself!
