Weekly Photos: Edmonton's Capital Ex

Edmonton Capital Ex

I can't resist. Thought I'd share a couple of Capital Ex photos of my kids on rides.

We spent 7 hours there. SEVEN! We basically followed our kids from ride to ride. I told the hubby that I would pay someone $20 an hour to chaperone. Seven hours is a long time and that would be great money for someone but I have to admit, I love seeing their screaming, happy faces going on all the different rides.

We ate cotton candy and candy apples. I know we bought some food too but for the life of me, I CAN NOT remember. Obviously, must not have been memorable.

We did get around to watching super dogs for a bit. That was fun though my kids kept asking to go back. My kids are total ride junkies. They love the thrill. A lot of the times, they had their hands up in the air, not even holding on and screaming. haha. They said the Dragon roller coaster was their fave.

My back and legs hurt like crazy that night. It was worth it though. Especially as we were leaving, my daughter said to me "Mom, that was the BEST day ever."

Have a good weekend folks!

Looks like the kids had a blast! We're moving to Edmonton soon - looks like a place we'll definitely have to visit!

The pics of the kids are priceless. Love it. Where are the pics of you and your hubby on the rides?

Maki said...

Jenn's: My kids LOVE Capital Ex and they can't wait for it to arrive every year. If you love rides, you'll love it too!

Coffee Girl: I don't do rides. Get easily nauseous. We bought the kids all-day passes but once they get bigger the hubby will be on rides with them too.

Those were the days. What happy family memories. And, you got your reward (at the end of your post). I was never a rider (car sick, etc.) but both daughters would beam from their rides. Oh, how fast they grow, Maki. I remember their joy and your daughter's comment brought it all back as if it was yesterday. It is a happy sad feeling because I was a single parent and I wanted to have more happy times like this, but was always working and feel I missed too much.

Such beautiful photography!

Valerie: even being a stay at home mom, I still feel like I miss stuff. We mothers will always feel like it's not enough but I'm sure your children appreciate all that you have done for them.

Maria: Thanks for the comment and stopping by!
