Swings

I took Addison to the park the other day and she insisted that I swing on the swing next to her. I decided this could count as my workout for the day, combined with the walk to the park (have you ever swung for a long time and then felt sore in your thighs the next day?) Well, as I was pumping pretty hard I noticed that every down swing forward, my stomach was in my throat, and I hate that feeling. Who gets that feeling when swinging at a childrens park? Boy did that make me feel old. I honestly had to stop swinging because I felt sick. Do you think that means we shouldn't go to 6 Flags in September? It' like I'm an old woman who doesn't enjoy thrill rides anymore. Or does it mean I just need to do them more often to toughen me up?

That is so funny. I felt the same way last year riding the kiddie rides with Kenadee at Lagoon. I think we are getting old. Love and miss ya.

Wow, I can honestly say I have never experienced that swinging. That's pretty funny. :) I do feel that way on Star Tours at Disneyland though.

I always get that feeling in the pit of my stomach as well on the swings. I went to 6 flags last year and I was retty proud of myself. I got on some pretty scary rides. You'll have fun there just don't eat any big meals until after your done with the rides :)

I do fine with the pit of my stomach business & I love the roller coasters, but I have noticed that the swings don't come in EXTRA WIDE, and unfortunately, my hips let me know afterward! So sad.

You get wimp award for the day! Just kidding. I've noticed that I do fine with roller coasters, but that spinning things (like the teacups) make me nauseous for the rest of the day.

Oh I hear ya. Isn't that funny. I used to get after my mom for being such a baby, and Now I am even worse than her. Lagoon is a killer, I used to love it when I was little, and now I get deathly I'll after 1 ride.
