My guy is having the best Spring Break Ever. After story time at Book People this morning, I tagged along with a friend of mine to Kiddie Acres. I hadn't heard of the place before then. At first sight, it looks like a traveling kid-sized carnival. Lucky for us, they're not traveling--they've been in Austin over thirty years and aren't going anywhere anytime soon. It's small, which is perfect for kids and parents looking for an amusement park experience minus the park maps and long lines. The rides are perfectly old and simple. There's a train that circles the park, mini- golf and pony rides! Zack rode a pony twice today, and I have yet to ride one. His life is already exponentially more fun than mine was at the age of four. But isn't that how it's supposed to be?
What kind of Spring Break fun are you and your kiddos getting into?
