My wife says that we are not going to any amusement parks this year.She says that she is burned out(can you beleive that)Plus it is hard to take a 1 year old to an amusement park anyway.Would all my fellow Buzzers do me a favor and ride one extra time for me.I will be there in 2003-Bank on it! ----------------- You will never forget the name........GOLDUST
Have you thought about asking to go by yourself or with other enthusiasts?
It may seem selfish but it's really not too much to ask to go away for one or two days during the summer. My wife goes with me currently but I can see where it's heading as she too is getting "burned out."
Perhaps she would go if you could find another couple, one of whom likes coasters and the other of whom doesn't, but is friends with your wife? That way you could go to parks and they could hang out, ride the bumper cars, whatever, while you rode coasters. This is another tactic I've used.
----------------- You can't spell "dishonorable" without "honorable."
We've been taking our daughter to parks with us since she was 14 months. They love it. Our son made his first park trip (to Sea World Florida) at just 32 days old. He's 5 months old now and to this day I've never seen be behave so well for so long as he did that day.
Heck, my wife was pregnant for the majority of 2001 (January thru the end of September) and in that time we hit BGT, IOA, SWF, all 4 disney parks, Old Town, Wild Adventures, SFWOA and Kennywood.
I can't believe the females haven't jumped in on this topic yet. I'm sorta in the same predicament that 2Hostyl talked about. I believe there should be "down-time" for each person in a marriage. If you and your spouse trust each other completely, she won't have any problem letting you go away for a day or so to the parks to relieve stress. You could be doing a whole lot worse things than hitting coasters. (you could be doing drugs, you could be abusive, you could be cheating) but your not..your just getting out to enjoy some down-time and to get away from the stresses of life. Just make DOUBLE sure that you accomodate her so she can take advantage of her own personal time away without worries. And never forget that now that you have a baby, you are now a family and are able to do things for the sake of the family. Isn't that what amusement parks are all about anyway? :)
----------------- God please let SFKK get something in 2002. ANYTHING!!
Ouch!, That hurts, please let me go!!!!! lol, J/P. You should just tell her your going to an amusement park to be amused and thrilled and just leave for a few hours. Or get a season pass to your homepark and just go for a few hours every once in a while!
My son was 3 weeks old when he first went to a park 2 parks actually dollywood and kings island I say visit your home park if you have one or take a day trip to a park I didnt get to travel last season due to finances so I intend to make up for that this year (sucked too with pkd and sfog both getting new coasters and within day trip distance) I did go to carowinds alot though
ps I'm betting most of the people screaming "whipped" are about 15 and have no idea what theyre in for in a few years my suggestion to them is start watching MARRIED WITH CHILDREN reruns and take notes
