Hi TPR. My daughter's name is Klaire. She is almost 3. This is the family:
Mike, Nicole, Miranda and myself
Everyone has Photo TR's of most of the major amusement parks and we will be hitting a few this year, I thought I dedicate this thread to Klaire doing her kiddie parks and kiddie rides. We plan on hitting a bunch of parks and traveling coasters this summer.
The first park of the year took us on a 6 hr round trip to Fredericksburg, VA on Friday 4/20. Not the best decision, but it was a fun trip for the whole family. Central Park Funland is a nice FEC with a soft play area, frog hopper, indoor himalaya, indoor bumper cars, indoor coaster and many arcade games.
Finally, after 3 hrs and driving through Baltimore and DC traffic.
There are many rides outside, but not open as of yet, and I got no pics of them. There is also a few mini golf courses and bumper boats. Don't have many pics of the place, but here are the rest. We had a nice fun family day out and it's right off 95, easy to anyone that wants to whore it out. The rest of the Pics:

That's it, until another trip sometime in late April/May. Unless places open earlier.....
Fun stuff! Hope to see more. One thing to keep in mind - the weekends are some of the slowest days of the week on TPR (Fri eve - Sun afternoon), so you may get a better response on future trip reports posting them on Mon - Thurs.
Last night we crossed the river to southern Jersey to hit Pennsville Carnival. Why? Because Skelly's Amusements where there with their Dragon Wagon. Klaire got to ride, but I was denied b/c of a height restriction. Couldn't get on no matter what.
There weren't too many rides, but it was a nice night to get out and change up the home routine.

Klaire likes Thomas the Train, especially the Mystic Island episodes, so when she seen the "shaky bridge" she had to go up and try it. It was one of two funhouses. We were going to do the other one, but the slide out was a spiral and fast. On the way over we saw a 3 yr old smash her face at the end of it b/c of how fast it was and out of control, so we passed on the other. Here is the one we did do:
Climbing up on of the 2 funhouses.

Thanks for a fun night Skelly's. So long until the next installment...
This is going to be a double upload thanks to me breaking my $700 lens. Thankfully I had a backup camera.
Today's installment is Sesame Place. Sesame Place is a nice kids park where, if you are over 36", can ride everything with your child. There isn't too many rides and they are really scattered in and about water rides. But the rides are thrilling enough for kids and fun for the adults as well since we can join in on the fun. We skipped the shows and the new parade.
Klaire and John get there credit first.
Going up thelift
Looks like they are having fun
onto the very niced themed carousel.
We were having a great day to this point. The picture below you going to see Klaire with a grumpy face. The story behind it is: After we got off the last free fall ride, I told her to go ride with "pop". She started to run to get him, tripped and fell. Usually with her it's no big deal, but at Sesame Place, the ground has rocks imbedded in concrete that stick out, almost like shards of glass. She cut her knee really good. So after some clean up and consoling we got her back into the spirit of riding rides again.
Notice the nice raspberry on her left knee.
Onto the nets.
It was after this we decided to break for lunch and not the only thing I broke. This is the point I decided I didn't need my lens on the camera and broke it Stay tuned for the 2nd installment with a bonus credit....
